Blowing smoke or a real possibility? Also, I saw where Romney was pushing for a general 5% reduction--from all agencies--in their spending. It struck me that in business, when budget cuts are required, the CEO immediately notifies the appropriate division/department heads of a % cut in their spending for the coming year and it's up to them to get it done. I don't recall anyone every trying to do this in the federal government, which probably led to the non-ending expansion of government spending.
