President Trump Takes A Scalpel To Obama Plan, Saves Taxpayers Millions

Donald just got rid of the worst of Obama’s liberal agenda.

Donald Trump promised to rein in government spending and undo the liberal transformation Obama started in America.

So far, he’s been doing a bang-up job. Trump’s slashed bloated government programs and curtail abusive regulation.

He cut taxes for millions of Americans. Yet, the government has enjoyed a surplus this year. Amazing, isn’t it?

Now Trump is setting his sights on one major expense that could use serious trimming, one that Obama couldn’t keep under control during his years as President.

From WTop:

President Donald Trump says he plans to freeze automatic pay raises for civilian federal employees in 2019, citing the need for government belt-tightening…

“We must maintain efforts to put our nation on a fiscally sustainable course, and federal agency budgets cannot sustain such increases,” Trump said in the letter…

Trump said the pay freeze would not “materially affect” the federal government’s ability to recruit qualified workers. More broadly, the president has signaled his support for moving away from fixed schedule of pay increases and toward performance-based pay.

Oh, God forbid we base pay increases on performance! Imagine what was going on: ALL government employees were getting pay raises.

It didn’t matter how poorly you were performing. If you got in late for work every day, never finished your assignments, were rude to your boss or co-workers: you still got a pay raise!

The federal government employs millions of people. Thanks to the broken system, they can be assured of a job for the rest of their lives.

Government agencies are very reluctant to fire workers. They don’t lay off staff, even when they are unnecessary. Plus, they get pay raises every year despite their performance.

All that Trump is doing is bringing a bit of reality into the situation. Government employees should be held to the same standard as everyone else.

If they want a pay raise, they should earn it. No more getting bumps in pay—just because you work for the government.

Already liberals are fuming at Trump’s measure. Mark Warner claimed Trump was “assaulting” federal workers.

M-hm. Democrats are always quick to rage. But they’re not willing to do what it takes for the future of our country.

Let President Trump know if you’re thankful he’s making smart choices with America’s money.
