‘You’re Fired!’ The best reform in Trump’s budget

A key provision in the GOP budget set to be released today would eliminate fat raises not tired to performance of government bureaucrats and help to eliminate the most useless workers from the federal workforce.

The White House’s plan would slow down automatic tenure based raises for federal employees in addition to making it easier for the Office of Management and Budget to move government workers around as needed.

As reported by The Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard:

The proposed changes are part of a broader effort to modernize the government and integrate the types of innovation that the president’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, is drafting.

The officials, speaking on background, did not say how large or small they expect the bureaucracy to be after the three-year reform effort, but it was clear that many workers in jobs that private industry has automated will be out.

And it was also clear that the workforce will be younger, mobile and more tech-savvy. Several times the officials noted that the Civil Services was created at a time when secretarial help was key and now higher-educated IT employees are needed.

“This is a subject that essentially people have ignored,” a Trump official said of the move. “The American people elected a president that promised dramatic change.”
