    The Governor pledges to cut 10% of Federal Government Jobs. From his website:

    Free Republic's website place the figure at 2.8 million employees. So 10 percent will be 280,000 employees getting a pink slip with Romney being elected. Bain's business model inflicted on the US is a bad proposition.

    The savings is $4B or something close to what, less than .5% of the federal debt?

    .

    What I wish we could "cut" is the knee-jerk reaction of so many to look to the federal bureaucracy to solve their problems.

    I suspect the rest would take care of itself.

    Only 200,000 cuts? Hell, he should cut 2,000,000 federal jobs. The majority of these "feds" are lazy-assed, over-paid incompetents. Take a stroll through the U.S. DOT some day through a sea of fraud, waste and abuse. That's just one example. Washington, D.C. is loaded with these lazy do nothing fucks.

    Good for him. I think the government needs to be cut way back. Too many piglets sucking on the government sow's teats.

    you mean Romney's platform of smaller government is news to you?

    I guess you fit my definition of a liberal to a tee.

    See my sig.
