When you calculate the immense size of the U.S. government, it’s no wonder so many citizens voted for Donald Trump.
The problem is, the government is so bloated, a LOT more needs to be done.
After all, the largesse of each separate department and sub-departments is enough to pay 100% of the costs of some nations’ entire debts.
We have 100 senators and 435 representatives. For each of these nearly 550 people, they have personal assistants, secretaries, staffers, go-fers, and a personal expense account with the Congressional Bank.
They have a Cadillac plan health insurance, they have cars, secret service, flights on the best planes, cushy offices, very “healthy” luncheons with alcohol, and absolutely no bills to pay for these offices and staffers.
They determine what they are paid, they earn generous pensions after they retire from office, and they enjoy benefits of people in high places who can give them great “stock tips” (ask Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton about that).
And of course, King Barack and his family spent millions of taxpayer dough on seemingly endless vacations.
Yep, these people have all been living VERY high on the hog. But the Trump administration has had it.
“President Trump’s budget proposal this week would shake the federal government to its core if enacted, culling back numerous programs and expediting a historic contraction of the federal workforce.
This would be the first time the government has executed cuts of this magnitude — and all at once — since the drawdown following World War II, economists and budget analysts said.
The spending budget Trump is set to release Thursday will offer the clearest snapshot of his vision for the size and role of government.
Aides say that the president sees a new Washington emerging from the budget process, one that prioritizes the military and homeland security while slashing many other areas, including housing, foreign assistance, environmental programs, public broadcasting and research.
Simply put, government would be smaller and less involved in regulating life in America, with private companies and states playing a much bigger role.”
These Establishmentarians (both Democrat and Republican) will fight Trump’s administration tooth and nail when it comes to cutting any of their precious goodies, though.
Lindsay Graham is already moaning about it. But Trump will have the support of the people and that counts for something…it counts for a lot, actually.
This is all part of the “phenomenal tax cut” plan the president has in store for America and honestly, we can’t WAIT to start saving! Hell, we already are!
