An Excerpt from A Comprehensive Proposal to Reduce the Federal Deficit
7) Government Efficiency
I propose a new cabinet-level department: The US Federal Department of Redundancy Department
Under the direction of three Secretaries (White, Black and Oriental) this department will identify or discover or document and eliminate or dismiss all overlapping, redundant or duplicative government agencies, programs, congressional committees and federal employees who look alike. (That would spell trouble for Blacks and Orientals, if not for the extra two Secretaries). It is difficult to estimate the cost savings, but at least a 25% reduction of the Federal budget percent is likely feasible. Additional iterations will save at another 25%, and so on, until the Department eliminates itself, like the EPA is doing now.
