We need executioners of government spending. A good place to start is D.C. Every bureaucrat needs to answer the question the Bobs put forth in Office Space: What would you say you do here?
Unfortunately, we can’t unload our country’s problems on the Bobs. Voters who are committed to conservative principles need to be the Bobs. Some government programs will need to be cut. Maybe some that benefit people you know. Some federal employees will need to be laid off. Maybe some you know. These are the hard choices that Congress and the super-committee will need to make. Voters need to have the maturity and resolve to support those who put our country’s financial stability first.
