great for people getting laid off in an economy where jobs are hard to find.

On the other hand, if federal government is going to keep serving primarily big business, as opposed to the consumers it was designed to protect from big business, cut it to the frickin' bone. If I ever decide that I want to help Monsanto ruin plants in the entire Western half of the planet, I can always make a voluntary donation.

I just wish they could do it by attrition, rather than by lay offs, especially in this economy.

Well, I guess Rick Perry is happy about this, anyway. (Wasn't he the one who wanted to eliminate the Commerce Department, among others?)
