It's Official: Trump's Swamp-Draining Begins

It's Official: Trump's Swamp-Draining Begins


Bureaucracy: With surprisingly little fanfare, President Trump has set about doing something that has evaded presidents of both parties for decades: reshaping, resizing and reforming our vast, dysfunctional federal bureaucracy. If he succeeds, all Americans will be the better for it.
It's not an easy task. But it is a vital one.
Last Wednesday, the ball really got rolling when Trump ended his temporary freeze on federal hiring, and announced a plan to "resize" the government to make it less costly, more productive and more responsive to average citizens. It's the kind of thing that private businesses do all the time, but that Big Government with its 2.9 million workers does almost never.
"The president of the United States has asked all of us in the executive branch to start from scratch — a little blank piece of paper, and if you were going to rebuild the executive branch, what would it look like?" Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told reporters.
To that end, Mulvaney has sent a letter to all federal agencies telling them to expect major funding cuts and that calls on them to "reorganize governmental functions and eliminate unnecessary agencies" as part of a plan to make government leaner and more efficient.
Though the bureaucracy makeover is part of the laundry list of items Trump wanted to get done in his first 100 days, Mulvaney notes the actual budget cuts won't happen until the 2019 budget. "One of the reasons this is so difficult to do is that you just can't wave a magic wand in the Oval Office and do these things," Mulvaney told RealClearPolitics.
Recent tales of a Veterans Affairs worker viewing porn while dealing with a customer and a Las Vegas-based Environmental Protection Agency official who used a government credit card for a $14,799 high-end gym membership only underscore the need for changes. But it goes even farther than that.
The fact is, along with revamping the bureaucracy itself, Trump plans to slash thousands and thousands of burdensome regulations whose costs far exceed their benefits. Today, according to economists' estimates, regulation costs the U.S. more than $2 trillion, much of that completely unnecessary. Sharp cuts in regulation will lead to fewer, but far more productive, federal workers.
The goal isn't to punish federal workers, but to make them subject to the same rules of efficiency as the rest of the world. It will take some doing, but reducing the size, scope and cost of government, while also limiting its influence in our lives, is a worthy goal.
