All this hoopla over the federal budget sequester is totally unnecessary. Give me two congressional staffers familiar with the budgeting process, four people with high school math skills and five working days. We will come up with a plan that will result in no layoffs, no furloughs, no reduction in security or defense capability, and no cuts in any public services of any kind. It will be easy and painless.

And in return for performing this noble public service, all I request in return is a measly $2 million honorarium. This is a bargain — not even one-tenth of 1 percent of the amount to be sequestered. I shall be standing by, ready to serve.
