Mike tweeted out the link to a new White House website where citizens can weigh in on which departments, or parts of departments, they would like to see cut.
The page greets visitors with a video of Mick Mulvaney, Director of the Office of Management and Budget. He stands before a pile of paperwork slightly taller than himself and twice as wide, claiming that it represents the regulations added to the Federal Register in the past two years alone.
Mulvaney then invites site visitors to submit "good stories or bad stories about how the federal government has failed or failed to serve you." The site will undoubtedly be inundated.
Mike loved the idea that "we the people are being invited to weigh in on reform," but was amused that there is an option to eliminate the executive branch. He predicted this particular feature of the new website will be visited frequently by "our friends on the left side of the aisle."
Visitors do have to leave a name and address, so this service is not for the paranoid.
