We do a great job as a country in raising funds for natural disasters and other excellent causes. Our country is in crisis. We have to stop taking this out on government employees. We should all take part in improvement our current situation. Government employees cannot carry the burden of cuts. Why not run a fundraiser and ask for support from those more affluent, e.g., Hollywood celebrities, athletes and corporate giants who are in a position to be able to contribute. This may help in the interim to bring the debt down. However, streamlining business processes and eliminating waste are essential to continually bring the debt down.
