The federal workforce is bloated, and to help bring the deficit under control the number of employees needs to be reduced. Doing so by attrition rather than laying off workers is the best way of going about it.
Reducing the size of the federal workforce by 10 percent seems arbitrary, and there’s nothing stopping the government from spending that money elsewhere. Besides, wouldn’t it be better to just fire them right away?
