President Trump has kept his promises. Now he is moving beyond his promises to bring even more common sense to government. We know the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) will vehemently denounce the Trump proposal as everything evil. They will probably even claim that the new Trump proposal will kill babies. Wouldn’t that be ironic as they advocate, even call for government money, to kill millions of babies before they are even born.
The real test will be the Republican establishment. The Republican establishment has called for the same thing while they are campaigning, but never follow through while in office. The biggest hypocrite in this area, Paul Ryan, will fortunately be gone as Speaker and out of the House. If McCarthy becomes Speaker, all signs are that he will follow directly in the footsteps of Boehner and Ryan. We the people must show strong support for Jim Jordan who will certainly support Trump.
So what is Trump proposing? Trump Asks Cabinet for 5 Percent Cut in Next Year's Budget
Dubbing it the "nickel plan," President Trump announced that he's asking every Cabinet secretary to cut their next-year's budgets by 5 percent.
"Get rid of the fat. Get rid of the waste," Trump told members of his Cabinet during a meeting at the White House. "And I'm sure you can do it."
Trump said he couldn't ask for the spending cuts earlier because he was working with Congress to increase funding for the U.S. military.
Trump said he's heard of a money-saving strategy called the "penny plan" to reduce federal spending by 1 percent. "Rather than go by the penny plan, we'll go by the nickel plan," he said
Some Cabinet secretaries can probably cut more than 5 percent, Trump said, “I believe we can actually do it easily.”
There is no reason this cannot be done. We know that the bloated Federal payroll is shrinking, because when people leave they are not replaced. Trump was able to overcome the opposition to firing incompetent employees in the Veteran’s Administration. Imagine if that could be done in the total federal bureaucracy and all those members of the Democrats for a Socialist America, who are spending 7 hours a day on work other than work they were hired to perform could be fired; or those employees being paid by the taxpayers but working almost full time for their labor unions could be fired. Since they are performing little or no work for the government, they would not have to be replaced.
More power to you President Trump. We the people support you. We know the “power to the people” citizens and members of congress will oppose you, but it makes so much sense, good common sense might actually prevail and carry the day.
Once we learn we can cut a nickel, we will realize the we can cut a quarter and see no difference in actual work performed. Than watch the “power to the people” advocates encourage their MOB buddies, ANTIFA, Black Lives Matter, and the Women’s March.
