How do we defeat the unaccountable bureaucracy?

There has been allot written about the power and control of the unelected bureaucracy that could care less which tweedle dee or tweedle doe party is stumbling around the capital beltway on a given election cycle.

I would like to present an idea that could collapse the bureaucracy from within by using its own avarice and nihilism against itself so it feeds upon itself rather then the citizens by using the profit motive. What if anyone in government could collect a commission on the amount of money they save taxpayers? That is I can make money by cutting programs. This would be applied to all government workers at every level.

The obvious downside to this would be a windfall of millionaire government cronies that would cannibalize their own agencies for personal gain but it would extremely effect in reigning in government spending. The commission percentage could be indexed so that when the government goes into deficit spending the commission is automatically increased in order to reduce the size of government then decreased if the government runs a surplus.

Any feedback would be welcome.

Good idea, cloudslicer, but I think these fat and happy bureaucrats are too lazy, to fat and lazy to be motivated by money to cut waste.

All it would take is a few, they would start raking it in. Particularly the most senor who are looking to retire would be much more motivated.

If it worked it would look like a snake eating its tail.

I have heard mentioned something they are calling
a "regulatory agency budget."  I think that means a
separate budget for entitlements and regulations.

Cut their budget to nil and force layoffs.

Cutting the budget would force lay offs of the people that do work. The unnacountable bosses would just fire the people that do the work and take half their salary for themselves.

Then the bosses need to be cut first.  Many times a top down purge works wonders.

You can't do it that way. If you cut the budget, the managers get to decide how to make cuts. Trump has the best idea... force and encourage early retirement. 

But also.. he needs to reduce big decisions that can be made by these people to the extent he can. Mostly that involves less regulation

Drogon, I just said cut the managers first.  Another thing, don't ever say "can't".  Remember, Regan can't fire those air traffic controllers?  How'd that work out?  These government workers that think they are bullet proof have another thing coming.  Where there is will, there is a way.
