Assuming the #s are correct, I think a balanced budget amendment w/ a limit on government spending tied to GDP would solve this problem. If government employees knew that their potential for salary increases were fixed against GDP they'd be more likely to be productive (one more hire means that much less money available for raises). A balanced budget requirement keeps the government from promising things it cannot keep w/o cutting other programs.
