"Hammond revealed he had recently met a delegation of politicians from Canada
, who were responsible for a radical 20% cut in spending imposed by the federal government in the 1990s."
"The two architects of Canadas programme review, Jocelyne Bourgon, who was the countrys top civil servant, and Marcel Massé, a former minister, cut 47,000 civil service jobs."

And yes. The way government employees and appointees are hanging on, defaults will probably happen sooner or later. Revenues must come from production--not only treasury presses.
