The government has too many employees, too much overhead, and too much waste. The private sector has to tighten its belt during tough economic times, and the government should, too.
The size and scope of government in Alaska is way too big. We need to scale back and privatize some of the government jobs we have created that burden our budget with so much long-term cost.
There are too many people making a great living in government while ordinary Alaskans suffer in the private sector. That's opposite of the way things are supposed to be.
