Latest Move by President Trump PANICS THE LEFT AGAIN!
Government is fat and bloated, and it’s been that way for quite some time.
According to Bureau of Labor Statistics,
There were 21,995,000 employed by federal, state and local government in the United States in August, 2015. By contrast, there were only 12,329,000 employed in the manufacturing sector.
And things have only gotten worse.
The BLS has published seasonally-adjusted month-by-month employment numbers for both government and manufacturing going back to 1939. In the first 50 years of the 76-year span of the 2015 report, manufacturing out-employed government. However, in August 1989, government overtook manufacturing as a U.S. employer.
That month, the government employed 17,989,000 and manufacturing employed 17,964,000.
America had cracked equilibrium in 1989, and it’s been downhill since. Don’t think politicians didn’t see the writing on the wall, but that was the problem. No, not the writing on the wall, but politicians.
In the intervening years from 1989 to 2015, government employment increased 4,006,000 and manufacturing employment has declined 5,635,000.
A businessman would have noticed this disturbing trend. But as we know, Obama was a community organizer.
That’s about as far from business as you can get and one level above a crackhead.
Thankfully, Donald Trump is a businessman. And he’s surrounded himself with other businessmen.
This is why the size of government has already begun to shrink, thanks to President Trump and Secretary of State Tillerson.
According to Bloomberg Politics, the State Department plans to cut 2,300 U.S. diplomats and civil servants. This constitutes about 9 percent of its workforce worldwide.
The personnel cuts, which will be phased out over two years. These cuts underscore President Trump’s commitment to undoing the Obama era policies that gave America the most government employees in history.
The bureaucrats can be thankful they are only losing their jobs. After all, as we learned in Benghazi, Leftists have interesting ways of lowering headcount and payroll.
Then there is the State Department budget
A draft budget outline released in March for the year that begins Oct. 1 seeks a 28.5 percent reduction in State Department spending from fiscal 2016. According to Tillerson, this planned jobs cuts come as the State Department is preparing a major reorganization of its work and mission to line up with Donald Trumps demands.
So not only is Tillerson reducing headcount, he’s dramatically reducing the budget. This is practically unheard of in government.
And you can bet that Tillerson’s group is not the only government agency downsizing. That is the Trump mandate to all his staff. Imagine when all government agencies begin this process.
Keep in mind, though the Fed shrinks, President Trump still creates jobs.
Thank God we finally have an Administration that is thinking about the American people and America’s future.
Of course Leftist are having a hard time with the change. Anything that limits their ability to get ahead and only think about themselves is devastating to them. One gentlemen by the name of Stephen Sestanovich said, “Just cutting without deciding what change you want to make is simply mindless…”
Trump know’s exactly what change he wants to make! The plan has been clear all along: to tighten government’s belt.
Government may be the only business that has never experienced a cutback, even when times are tough, despite massive debt. Instead, government chooses trying times to actually expand. Sure, the number of government employees fluctuates a bit over the years. But that’s because some administrations outsource, usually to cronies. As for REAL reductions in government personnel, this has rarely been the case.
Thus, we run huge deficits. And none was larger than Obama’s, nor has any administration accumulated more debt. Obama quoted fudged stats in every area of government, like shrinking deficit, the number of insured, unemployment, growing economy! It was all lies! Under Barack Obama the U.S. government accumulated about as much debt as it did under all of the other presidents in U.S. history combined.
Tillerson said the department’s mission is to deliver on Trump’s policies to “to provide the national security needs of the American people and to advance America’s economic interests around the world.”
