Sen. Hatch (R-UT) Cap Federal Workforce at 2009 Levels, Except Military

Utah Republican Senator Orrin Hatch has introduced a bill that could slim the government’s workforce. The Reduce and Cap Federal Workforce Act would bring down and freeze the number of civilian feds at February of 2009 levels. Agencies would need to make those reductions through attrition. The bill would exempt the Defense and Homeland Security departments and some intelligence agencies. Hatch says the government has become bloated, and his bill would cut it down to size.

What is it with Republicans and the military?  They are the identical twins of Democrats and teacher’s unions.  Military personnel are government employees.  The military is subject to the same shenanigans as all other government spending.
