One Idea That Could Solve All Our Budget Problems

ARCHIVES

As usual, The Onion's headline says it all: "U.S. Government to Save Billions by Cutting Wasteful Senator Program."

"According to officials, the decision to cut the national legislative body was reached during a budget review meeting on Tuesday. After hours of deliberation, it was agreed that the cost of financing U.S. senators far outweighed the benefits they provided."

For the humor-challenged, I'll spell it out: This is satire. 

Tom Shoop is vice president and editor in chief at Government Executive Media Group, where he oversees both print and online editorial operations. He started as associate editor of Government Executive magazine in 1989; launched the company’s flagship website, GovExec.com, in 1996; and was named editor in chief in 2007.
