IF YOU AREN'T ADDING TO UNEMPLOYMENT CUT MORE:

Bush Targets 'Big Government' with Plan to Reduce Federal Workforce (Rob Garver, July 20, 2015, Fiscal Times)

Characterizing the federal workforce as bloated and overpaid, former Florida governor Jeb Bush on Monday said that if he were elected president in 2016, he would impose a freeze on federal hiring as part of a plan designed to reduce the government workforce by 10 percent over four years.

Bush described a 10 percent reduction in federal headcount as "a realistic goal, saving tens of billions of dollars, and without adding to unemployment." [...]

Bush's plan to reduce the federal workforce was among the most fleshed-out of the proposals in his remarks. He claimed that similar cuts in Florida during his time as governor had been key to restoring the state's fiscal health.
