The White House has ordered a reduction and streamlining of the federal government, replacing the hiring freeze Pres. Trump implemented upon taking office. The Wednesday directive was ordered along with a 14-page plan to federal agencies detailing the objective to hire in areas of high priority and cut back in others.
Much to the chagrin of Trump-haters, this is yet another promise kept from the campaign trail: the downsizing of a bloated, redundant and ineffective bureaucratic government machine.
In many ways, modern day elections have done little to bring relief to the people. The bureaucratic machine is so expansive and filled with careerist ideologues that continue their preferred agendas instead of the empowered administration's that true change almost never takes place. A perfect example was the Lois Lerner/IRS scandal. To this day many small conservative non-profits haven't achieved status and many more lost theirs. No one has been held legally accountable to date, either.
Government is not supposed to be the largest employer in the United States. It is supposed to be held to a bare minimum; refraining from over-reach and performing only constitutionally mandated services. It has grown far from what it was supposed to be...and We the People are suffering for it.
