Capping salaries won’t save much in comparison to what really need to be saved. Your big ticket savings will come from slashing programs, organizations, staff and supporting contracts that are not “really” needed to achieve the fundamental purpose of government in supporting the Nation. This being said, the hard part will be to arrive at conclusions about what’s not really necessary since both federal and contractor jobs (not to mention empires) are at stake. We are at a point where truly hard, gut-wrenching, decisions must be made.
