Cutting Government At Last?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTSARY FEBRUARY 27, 2018

         PRESIDENT TRUMP IS ABOUT TO ATTEMPT A FEAT FEW OTHERS HAVE TRIED AND AT WHICH NO PRESIDENT IN MODERN TIMES HAS SUCCEEDED. HE’S GOING TO TRY TO CUT THE SIZE OF THE BLOATED FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

         AS RONALD REAGAN USED TO SAY, THE ONLY PROOF OF ETERNAL LIFE IN WASHINGTON IS A GOVERNMENT PROGRAM. OUTMODED PROGRAMS, LIKE THE BIOLOGICAL SURVEY UNIT, STARTED 100 YEARS AGO, ARE ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK.

         EVERY FEDERAL AGENCY HAS SUBMITTED A PLAN TO THE WHITE HOUSE FOR REORGANIZATION.

         THE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT PROPOSES ELIMINATING THE UNDER SECRETARY POSITION, WHICH COORDINATES ACTIVITES RELATED TO POSTSECONDARY EDUCATION, CAREER-TECHNICAL EDUCATION AND FEDERAL STUDENT AID.

         CUTS IN OTHER AGENCIES, SUCH AS THE AGRICULTURE DEPARTMENT AND U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY ARE ALSO TARGETED FOR ELIMINATION.

         ENTITLEMENTS ARE THE BIG DRIVERS OF DEBT AND THEY ALSO NEED REFORM, BUT STARTING WITH OUTMODED PROGRAMS IS WHERE TO BEGIN IN ORDER TO BUILD PUBLIC CONFIDENCE FOR THE REST. I’M CAL THOMAS.
