Sen. Joe Manchin broke his promise to Americans to side with Joe Biden. Senate Democrats voted to pass Biden’s latest tax and spend bill—which will result in more pain for working Americans.
Not only will this bill increase taxes for nearly every American, but it will also raise taxes on the energy sector and corporations. Of course, all of that will result in higher costs for Americans. But that’s not even half of it.
Biden’s new bill will add 87,000 new IRS workers. This will be a literal army that will hunt down every last American, forcing us to pay more than our “fair share.” Soon after this news came out, Donald Trump called for radical change to the federal government.
Former President Donald Trump once again talked about overhauling the administrative state on Saturday, telling a crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas that the next Congress and president need to “remove rogue bureaucrats and root out the deep state.”
“As we secure the border, another key priority for the next Congress and the next President will be to drain the swamp once and for all to remove rogue bureaucrats and root out the deep state. Congress should pass groundbreaking reform empowering the president to ensure that any federal employee who is corrupt, incompetent, or unnecessary for the job can be told, “You’re fired.” You ever heard that? You’re fired.” [Source: Breitbart]
The nature of the corrupt federal government means very few bureaucrats—including pencil-pushers and useless workers—get fired. Government agencies don’t lay off workers. And even corrupt employees who break the rules never lose their jobs.
Trump had previously said he would use his Schedule F executive order to fire as many as 50,000 government bureaucrats. That’s only a drop in the bucket of the 87,000 new IRS bloodsuckers the Democrats want to hire. And perhaps only a fraction of the goons who will be working in the federal government by 2025 (the year Trump returns to the White House if elected).
This tends to be how the federal government works. If not checked, it gets larger and larger, like a cancer feeding on the American taxpayer. Federal agencies have no bottom line, like private businesses. Workers can cost them billions a year, but will never get fired. This pathetic arrangement is a breeding ground for incompetence and corruption.
But few lawmakers care about it, because it doesn’t hurt them—just us.
Only someone like Donald Trump is ruthless enough to fire these leeches on our society. But it will take, as he said, a Congress who will grant the next president power to do so.
Will Republicans have the guts to clean house and save the American public? Only if they stand behind Trump.
