    What the budget theatrics will do eventually is weed the unnecesary spending such as million dollar GSA conferences (vacations0),

    congressional business trips (junkets) in business (luxury) jets, and the constant hiring of unnecessary government employees that do the equivalent of Gomer Pyle digging a hole in the morning and filling it back in the afternoon and some overpaid bureaucrat claiming big stimulus was accomplished for the economy. To quote Milton Friedman: Milton recalled traveling to an Asian country in the 1960s and visiting a worksite where a new canal was being built. He was shocked to see that, instead of modern tractors and earth movers, the workers had shovels. He asked why there were so few machines. The government bureaucrat explained: “You don’t understand. This is a jobs program.” To which Milton replied: “Oh, I thought you were trying to build a canal. If it’s jobs you want, then you should give these workers spoons, not shovels.”
