Rand’s Hammer Redux

Jerry at Common Sense and Wonder lays out the specifics of Rand Paul’s $500B slash-and-burn. There’s lots of good stuff there (although I still think there’s more value in a gradualist approach), but one line item in particular struck me:

Collect delinquent taxes from Federal Employees……..$3,000,000,000.

Really? Three beeelyun unpaid by the folks who feed from the federal trough? Now that’s chutzpah. (Hint: Start with the Cabinet.)
