As the Nations biggest employer shouldn't government be able have the same weapons as private business?

When a private employer has declining revenue problems they have the following choices. 1.Fire/layoff staff 2.Cut back of benefits (heath insurance & pensions) 3.Reduce wages across the board. 4.Or they can do all of these thing and more. Since most of us want our government run more like a business should each governmental unit have the flexibility to lower their payroll cost when they face declining revenue?

Actually I would take that even further and say that any government worker should be the ultimate "at will" worker. That is fired without any cause, at any time. Of the people, for the people, and by the people does not mean the government should be allowed to expand at will.

Yes. At this point in time we are saddled with a pack of liberal politicians who believe they can buy their way out of any problem,including being BROKE. And the unions support them.

No, they shouldn't be run like a private business because they aren't. And they should not be the nation's largest employer. The fact that they are is why we are in the dire position we face today.
