Closing entire departments - love it. I have said this is the only way to reduce the bloated sack in Washington and it's good to see its use somewhere. Reduced budgets can be inflated later and leave the core in place. Eliminate entire programs, departments, etc. , if you are really interested in change.... On unions, I had to explain the giant inflatable rat to my 5 year old daughter on the way to school this week. I still haven't convinced myself union intimidation is free speech.
