Wow, Trump Horrifies Democrats…Reveals His Bold Plan To Drain The Swamp!
By Kathy Shaidle|November 23, 2016

The Founding Fathers wouldn’t recognize America’s gargantuan federal government. It has grown far beyond anything they could have imagined, or wanted for the country.

Ever since federal government employees were unionized, it became almost impossible to fire any of them, and the size of the bureaucracy has grown, along with its inefficiency and incompetence. This bureaucracy is also notoriously partisan, with most employees being registered Democrats.

Like many Republican presidents before him, Donald Trump has vowed to slash the size of the federal government. Will he keep that promise? Early signs are promising, as reported by Conservative Tribune:

Recently, President-elect Trump began working with his Republican Congress to bring these measures to fruition, as reported by The Washington Post.

“Hiring freezes, an end to automatic raises, a green light to fire poor performers, a ban on union business on the government’s dime and less generous pensions” were just some of the ideas being drafted, according to the Post. (…)

Moreover, by shrinking government, Trump would only be giving the American people what they wanted. A Gallup poll published last month revealed that a 54 percent majority of Americans favored smaller government.

Of course, these employees won’t be let go without “golden parachutes” and other costly goodies to make their departure less unpleasant. The true cost savings might not be as high as small government conservatives would like.

However, these workers have to face reality: Their generous pension and benefits plans are unfair and unsustainable, and their salaries are usually far higher than those for similar jobs in the private sector. They’ve had a good run but it’s time to “drain the swamp.”
