Marjorie Taylor Greene, has put forth a bold proposal advocating for substantial layoffs within the U.S. government.
This idea comes in the wake of Argentina's decision to reduce its government workforce by 5,000 employees under President Javier Milei's administration. Greene sees this move as a model for the U.S. to follow in order to tackle its financial issues and address the burgeoning national debt.
"This is the way and we should do the same. Release them to the private sector, there are plenty of jobs." Greene states on the social medie X.
Her proposal marks a stark contrast to President Joe Biden's economic approach, which includes plans to decrease the deficit through increased taxes on the wealthy and lowering prescription drug costs.
Greene's suggestion resonates with the broader Republican agenda of cutting government spending to improve fiscal health.
'Let's Start With You'
Marjorie Taylor Greene's recent proposal for significant government layoffs has garnered notable support on Twitter, with over 8,200 likes on her post at the time of writing. However, the response in the comment section paints a more divided picture, with some users suggesting that Greene herself should be the first to leave her position.
The comments range from direct to sarcastic, reflecting the contentious nature of her proposal. One user straightforwardly suggested, "Great idea! Let’s start with you and the rest of the House." This comment implies that the cuts should begin with elected officials, including Greene herself.
Another user echoed this sentiment more succinctly, stating, "Let's start with you." This response directly targets Greene, proposing that she should lead by example if she is advocating for government layoffs.
A third comment added a layer of irony to the discussion: "You volunteering? After all, you hate your job."
