Lummis Bill Freezes Government Sprawl
“We need to focus on growing our economy, not Washington.”
U.S. Representative Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.) has introduced H.R. 657, the Federal Workforce Reduction Act, which would institute tough measures to halt government growth and produce a smaller, leaner federal workforce.
“For the past two years, President Obama and his Democratic allies have overseen explosive government growth in the name of job creation. Yet, one in nine Americans is still out of work and our country’s debt has surpassed $14 trillion dollars – with each American taxpayer’s share of that debt nearing $45,000. This big government, tax-and-spend approach is not the answer.
“Small businesses and entrepreneurs must not be crowded out by unchecked government growth. We need to focus on growing our economy, not Washington.
“The Federal Workforce Reduction Act aggressively halts the sprawl of government, forces agency heads to make government more efficient, and helps us get back to a people-centered, not government-centered America.”
