    I think we need to do something constructive and hashing out the details is very important.
    I agree.
    The culture of corruption in these agencies would never be addressed by "restructuring".  The career employees that have spent their entire lives living and believing they are above the law could never be corrected.
    I am unconvinced that many career employees in these agencies have spent their entire careers "believing they are above the law." It is logically possible that everyone should be fired regardless, but I am really skeptical. And I think we should be wary of broad-brush derogations of government employees, even in agencies that we regard as intrinsically suspect.
    While to you it may appear that I want to shut down our government....
    Nope, I wasn't trying to pin that on you. My intended point was much narrower.
