Although Trump promised to drain the swamp, there are some complications since it is much deeper than it seemed. Even if we put corrupted politicians aside, there are still dozens of huge companies that are exploiting taxpayer funds.
Ever since Trump took the presidential seat, he’s doing everything he can in order to culvert this swamp. The numbers of government members decreased, he cut the regulations, he reduced the staff members in number of companies.
The President’s biggest achievement probably comes from one specific group that’s been abusing federal decades for years, and this group is the EPA.
From New York Times:
“More than 700 people have left the Environmental Protection Agency since President Trump took office, a wave of departures that puts the administration nearly a quarter of the way toward its goal of shrinking the agency to levels last seen during the Reagan administration…
The departures reflect poor morale and a sense of grievance at the agency, which has been criticized by President Trump and top Republicans in Congress as bloated and guilty of regulatory overreach.
That unease is likely to deepen following revelations that Republican campaign operatives were using the Freedom of Information Act to request copies of emails from E.P.A. officials suspected of opposing Mr. Trump and his agenda.
The cuts deepen a downward trend at the agency that began under the Obama administration in response to Republican-led budget constraints that left the agency with about 15,000 employees at the end of his term.
The reductions have accelerated under President Trump, who campaigned on a promise to dramatically scale back the E.P.A., leaving only what he called “little tidbits” in place. Current and former employees say unlike during the Obama years, the agency has no plans to replace workers, and they expect deeper cuts to come.”
It seems like the EPA stole billions of taxpayer money while Obama was on the lead. Despite their goal is to protect our society and environment, they did more harm to it than benefit.
It pays off more to act as political advocacy groups, instead of protecting the lives of the Americans. The EPA aims for the most severe views on climate change and global warming. They’re using more power than they are supposed to, and they’re abusing private businesses at the same time.
Now, thanks to our President, this will come to an end. He started taking measures to expose EPA’s radicals and to put them back in order. They should be start doing their jobs and protect our health without praising the liberal’s goals. Don’t you think?
The New York Times mourns the loss. The EPA staff were much more than “scientists”…They were stealing people’s tax money and doing nothing in return. When you think about it, this was what the government did all the years while Obama was in the House.
President Trump has just begun. He plans on reducing more and more agencies till the swamp is fully drained.
