A new broom sweeps clean in Washington when it comes to cabinet heads and appointed officials, but what about all of the millions of federal workers on the government payroll? Their jobs are supposed to be apolitical and largely independent of which party controls the White House or the chambers of Congress. According to a new survey conducted by Government Executive, a significant number of these workers are signaling that they might “reconsider their career in government service” if Donald Trump moves in to the West Wing.They're bluffing. A career bureaucrat with a good salary, excellent benefits, stable job hours, golden retirement is not going to leave simply because Trump is in the White House. Besides, civil servants are supposed to be apolitical, serving the best interests of the people regardless of who serves in the presidency.
So, I"ll call that bluff. Y'all quit. Just walk in to your boss' office and quit. Drag up, haul ass, go to the house. I dare ya.
If Trump immediately reduced the size of government by 35%, just by showing up for work, that would be a feature. Smaller government is a Republican standard. That would be excellent.
