    Fiscal cliff from the bureaucrat's P.O.V.
    It should be no surprise that the biggest hunk of fat in the Federal budget is the government employee. What is nice to witness is that the courageous Mr.Core has not neglected the 800lb ape in the room.
    As we can no longer afford to pay the high percentage of the fed salary plus benefits for life (and to surviving spouses), this extremely expensive Ponzi scheme will need to be the first to be cut. The recipients of these generous benefits will fight like hell, and likely win; they are, after all, the Absolute Bureaucracy...Soviet Union style.
