No Wonder Why Bureaucrats Hate Him...

February 24, 2017

One of the many reasons why Americans voted for Trump was because he’s a businessman, not someone who’s spent his entire life in the political bubble. They were fed up with the DC mindset that every agency must always get more money to spend than last year, even with the debt climbing toward $20 trillion. Does anyone outside the Beltway Bubble, where even deep recessions never put a damper on spending, ever enjoy that luxury?

Budgeting had become so meaningless in Washington that after Democrats took over both the White House and Congress in 2009, they stopped passing budgets entirely for six years. The GOP finally retook both Houses in 2015 and passed a non-binding budget outline that didn’t require Obama’s signature (he wouldn’t have signed it, anyway: it called for cutting spending by $5 trillion over 10 years). No Senate Democrats voted for it; they predicted voters would be so furious over the spending cuts, Republicans would pay a steep price at the polls. That prediction worked out about as well as their budget-free spending had.

One reason why the deep state bureaucrats are squealing like stuck pigs is that for the first time in their lives, there’s someone in charge who plans to impose a real budget, the type all of our families and businesses have to live on. Trump promised to release a budget next month that starts to clean up the financial “mess” he inherited, and that makes every branch of government responsible for protecting “every last tax dollar. No more wasted money.” Naturally, Chuck Schumer is vowing to fight him “tooth and nail” on it, the nails having been purchased by the Pentagon for $200 each.

No wonder Washington bureaucrats hate Trump so much. They’ve turned wasting our money into an art form, and Trump wants to take that away! It’s like taking away Picasso’s paint brushes! That is, if he bought them from a patron with no competitive bids, paid $3 million apiece for them, and painted only in red.

    You are so right as usual. My husband and I respect you and appreciate all you do. We wanted you for President both times. We remember when you came to our church many years ago. Cottage Hill Baptist Mobile, Al. You have such wisdom because you are a godly man. We listen to every word you speak. Trump and our country needs you, doing exactly what you are doing.
    Please come see us in Mobile.
    Mobile, Al loves you and your wife and we love the Trumps.
    We are so proud of Jeff Sessions, a dear friend of our family. Come see us, we have plenty of room and would be honored to have you again.
    God bless you. Carolyn Sawyer

    Indeed. Many others will also fight him "tooth and nail" on this. The cost of those nails will certainly add up.
