#4 Also in the article:

Paying EPA employees to leave their jobs isn’t anything new. Under former President Barack Obama, the EPA paid more than $11 million in incentives to compel 436 employees to voluntarily leave their jobs in 2014. This was done to reduce payroll expenses.

I question the motive in this case.

#5 Remember during the 'oughts' and the rotations to the ME, the Army finally got authorized up to 530,00 or so. Now its back down to 480,000. How about using that as a slide for cutting the other departments?

#6 Put a zero behind the 8 and we will have a good size of what it should actually be.

#8 (EPA) will lay off more than 1,200 employees over the next two months

Most likely they will become lobbyists, consultants and members of a "think tank."
