Ramaswamy's Idea to Cut the Size of the Federal Gov't Blasted


Republican presidential hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy’s idea for how to cut the size of the federal government is not getting a warm reception.

On Sunday, Ramaswamy suggested using federal employees’ Social Security numbers to decide who gets to keep their job.

“On Day 1, *instantly* fire 50% of federal bureaucrats. Here’s how: if your SSN ends in an odd number, you’re fired,” he wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.

He added, “That downsizes government by half. Absolutely *nothing* will break as a result. It doesn’t violate civil service rules because mass layoffs are exempt. SHUT IT DOWN.”

He also suggested it would ensure “no bureaucrat can claim their firings were politically motivated.”

“Further firings can be executed with a chisel, but Step 1 needs to be an unrestrained chainsaw or else it just won’t happen,” Ramaswamy insisted.

However, his plan was not well received.
