Whadyaknow! Even without the draconian measures suggested by the Old White Guys’ Party the federal deficit is decreasing faster than at any time since the post WWII demobilization. Maybe the best thing Congress can do to manage the deficit is to just go away. In fact, if we laid off those 500-plus laggards and their staffs for a year or two we’d save another bucket of money. A recent study found that there are at least 2,000 Congressional staffers making over $100,000 a year. That’s another couple hundred million bucks right there not including all the benefits.
