President Donald Trump called for something very controversial in Washington DC: to treat government employees as though they work for us.

King George III’s bureaucrats, whom Thomas Jefferson decried in the Declaration of Independence as “swarms of officers” who “harass our people and eat out their substance,” would have envied the job protection of federal employees today. In Tuesday’s State of the Union address, President Donald Trump called for something very controversial among the chattering classes of Washington DC: to treat government employees as though they work for us rather than the other way ‘round.

The president said, “I call on Congress to empower every cabinet secretary with the authority to reward good workings and to remove federal employees who undermine the public trust or fail the American people.” Following through on this simple promise to make a government job more like the ones the rest of us have will require the president and Congress to undo more than a century of misguided, anti-democratic, and unconstitutional laws governing the

civil service.

Paid By Taxpayers to Resist Election Results

In November 2016, Washington was abuzz with talk of “landing teams,” as though transitioning from a Democratic administration to a Republican one was akin to landing at Omaha Beach. After Trump’s election, his employees in the executive branch openly declared their intention to “resist” by undermining his policies. Republican insiders bemoaned the slow appointments of people to political office within the administration, knowing that even a full political staff guiding a hostile department is much like the rudder of a sailboat trying to turn the Titanic.
