GOP Hopeful on Budget: Cut Porno-Watching Gov't Employees

05/17/2015 04:43 pm ET | Updated May 17, 2016

I asked GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina what specific agencies and/or programs she would cut in order to streamline the federal government, at the South Carolina Freedom Summit. Rather than name specific agencies or programs, the former Hewlett Packard CEO named the following actions she would take:

1. Institute Zero Base Budgeting.

2. "Get after the hundreds upon hundreds of billions of dollars of fraud, waste, and abuse that has been documented year after year after year, and which no one has ever done anything about." (One would think with all the documentation Fiorina would be able to cite specific examples.)

3. Move to a pay-for-performance system for public employees. (This is where the porno-watching comes in.)
