Stop lying about "cuts". Freeze all government hiring NOW (do not increase any agency personnel ;one budgets). Allow no replacements for retirees or normal attrition.
Change senior Gs/SES bonus criteria to a % of program busiest saved(i.e., underspent)
the senate can pass all the programs they want, and the agencies can issue all the regulations they want, but without GS employees to administer/enforece/interpret them, eventually wasteful/ labor intensive programs ail have to fall by the wayside
result: smaller government !
