The Government needs to apply triage to the budget.

There is as pecking order as to the importance of programs.

On another forum, someone was bragging about making $120k as a park ranger with high seniority rangers making $200K+.

Many Government jobs do not add value to the economy and need to be eliminated.
I think it is about the short term velocity of money.

The gov is very good at putting money into circulation. If the gov suddenly keeps taxing but stops spending, money slows dramatically.
