This is a spin off of the question that was asked about Democrats wanting to shut down the government. I can't see any reason why either party would want to shut down the government other than to quickly make a large impact on the budget.
That being said, what would you suggest to get our federal budget back in the black?
If you don't want to post suggestions, here are some ideas I've heard lately, you can feel free to comment on them:
-2 year pay freeze on federal civilian employees.
-raising allowed time in grade as well as overall rank requirements for retirements in the military
-freeze budget at last year's rate, no new programs, no upgrading old programs to incorporate new ideas (at least where I work, this one is already in effect by the way).

Actually JewJew I don't know about the state you live in but here in Nebraska you have to volunteer and actively be seeking a job to get welfare. I think it is great because a lot of the people if they are hard workers will than get hired at the places they are volunteering.
I think all government employees that make 6 figures or more a year should have to pay into their own pensions. I do not think that tax payers should be paying for private jets. This would save money and help out the problems with TSA. I think that all publicly elected officials should be required to be in their seats and dealing with the country 90% of the time that they are in session and if they are not than we start docking their pay.

Posted this here 2 years ago. Don't really see much that needs changing, except they moved the search button and the damage is already done from the diesel spike,so it's too late for that one now.
