It’s no secret that the federal government wastes taxpayer dollars. Trump skyrocketed to victory in November because the American people couldn’t take it anymore.
For decades Americans have complained about the abuses of our top leaders. How they spend our money for the most ridiculous reasons. How funds that should be used to rebuild our nation, fund our military, or fix needed programs are wasted, thanks to red tape and a lack of accountability.
Every time a democrat takes power, we see more money getting wasted, as federal budgets balloon and the deficit surges.
But now that Trump is soon to take office, we will be seeing serious changes to the way Washington spends its money.
From Washington Examiner:
Making good on a promise to slash government, President-elect Trump has asked his incoming team to pursue spending and staffing cuts.
Insiders said that the spending reductions in some departments could go as high as 10 percent and staff cuts to 20 percent, numbers that would rock Washington if he follows through.
At least two so-called “landing teams” in Cabinet agencies have relayed the call for cuts as part of their marching orders to shrink the flab in government.
The cuts would target discretionary spending, not mandated programs such as Medicare or Social Security, the sources said.
We’ve been waiting for these kind of cuts for decades. In 2008, John McCain promised serious spending cuts to lower the deficit and reduce taxes. Instead we got Obama, who dump billions of dollars into government agencies, which proceeded to waste them.
Our nation debt soared as the GDP languished. People dropped out of the job market as our economy contracted and companies shipped jobs overseas.
Taxes climbed thanks to expansive government programs, not least of which was Obamacare.
In order to get our government back on track, these kinds of cuts are necessary. With spending in check, Trump can focus on the more important issues facing our country, like creating jobs within the private sector, fixing immigration, and ending terrorism.
