I'll give credit when credit is due. Our insanely large federal government workforce isn't just remarkably inefficient and incompetent, but far too often the work government employees do is directly harmful and obstructive; in addition to their protected wages and benefits and pensions on the backs of current and future taxpayers.
It's good to see Trump reverse the trend to hire more federal employees. Instead of burdening citizens, 11,000 people will now have to produce and contribute to our economy. It's a good start. About 2 million more to go!
