Here is a solution for the longest-ever partial government shutdown in U.S. history.
SHOW ME THE MONEY
There is a huge taxpayer money savings opportunity that American citizens across the country will never know about unless they read this article. The savings is so massive and immediate that it can be applied to fully fund the President’s request for border security funding – $5.7 Billion, and leave enough money left over to apply the balance of savings to reduce the national debt by up to $8 Billion in the first year.
This savings is so significant that it will total over $130 Billion during the next decade if the minimum amounts offered in my plan are carried out. And that savings is after fully funding and paying for the wall and reopening the government.
My plan will:
- Eliminate $13.6 Billion in wasteful government spending each year
- Provide the President with $5.7 Billion for border security and,
- Provide up to $130 Billion in total debt relief for the nation
Now that is a lot of money, and the people who oppose this plan are the ones who stand to lose a lot of money.
This amount of savings may sound crazy to people who never worked for the government. You might ask, “How could this be?” and “Why are the people in Washington not coming up with these ideas?”
I totally understand. That is what the media and politicians want you to say. But as a former insider and government whistleblower, I can assure you that the amounts involved here are no crazier than continuing to waste taxpayer money year after year and doing nothing about it.
Folks, we don’t ever cut anything. We are becoming a nation of Americans who are clueless about the corruption in our government. We are turning into a nation of bickering tyrants, arguing with each other on behalf of politicians and a media propaganda machine that does not want to solve problems.
Americans need to get their heads out of their asses and smell the roses.
We need to get to the heart of the matter. We need to demand efficiency from the taxpayer money that we entrust our politicians and bureaucrats to spend. To do that, we need to install accountability and President Trump has the power to do this if he can get your support.
WITH THE GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN, WE CAN SAVE $13.6 BILLION RIGHT NOW!
Covered beneath all the shutdown drama is the biggest scam in American history that lies at the heart of what makes the Swamp in D.C. so powerful and corrupt.
I am talking about the non-essential federal government worker. The politicians in Washington D.C. with President Trump included, act as if all these furloughed workers are needed. Congress passed a bill late last week to pay all federal employees whether they worked or not during the furlough when the government reopens, and the President appears willing to sign it.
Federal employees in Washington D.C. are the only workforce in the country that gets guaranteed pay for not working when they are laid off. Paying the people not working eliminates the pain for politicians at a tremendous cost to taxpayers that no one is talking about.
The truth is that many of these furloughed federal workers are not needed anymore. Their jobs have long been obsolete. They are the product of outdated bureaucracies built by corrupt politicians and deep state operatives over many decades. Many of the “non-essential” jobs are populated by people who add little value. Most senior officials in government spend their entire career going to meetings each day that accomplish nothing. I have been in those meetings, they are a farce. Money is power in Washington, and he or she who owns the biggest bureaucracy of personnel and funding yields the most power and prestige and is usually the most corrupt. Whistleblowers are still being destroyed – even under President Trump.
It is impossible to work for the federal government and not see the corruption, waste, fraud and abuse every single day. It is a joke inside government agencies – managers climbing the ladder of power on top of the shoulders of a workforce that is obsolete.
“Most Americans know the government is not efficient. They understand that federal bureaucrats are not doing a good job spending their money, but they have no idea how bad it really is.”
It is estimated that 65- 80 percent of the total work force currently furloughed will be needed if the shutdown continues for many years.1 Former insiders like me know that the actual number of essential workers on the rolls in the government is woefully far fewer than this study suggests, but I’ll be generous. We’ll use the 80 percent number of workers furloughed today as the starting number which means that out of all the federal workers impacted by the shutdown, about 80 percent of them are needed.
Out of the approximately 800,000 furloughed federal workers, about 20 percent (160,000) of these federal workers are “not needed” non-essential and can be terminated now and removed from taxpayer rolls today.
But is there anyone in Washington discussing this idea? Absolutely not!
Many Americans probably don’t realize that we pay a lot for these “not needed” non-essential employees. Their offices, equipment, benefits, salaries, retirement… the list goes on. At the very low end, the average total cost per year for each of these employees is about $85,000 – $120,000 depending on locality. That’s probably much too low given the significant grade inflation that has occurred in Washington D.C. in recent years, but again, I’m being generous. We’ll be conservative and use the $85,000 figure per year figure for each worker.
As you can see, the potential savings to U.S. taxpayers is $13.6 Billion per year – AT A MINIMUM if my plan is adopted.
THAT’S RIGHT – WE CAN SAVE $13.6 BILLION RIGHT NOW by telling some unnecessary federal workers to find new jobs. With the blazing economy right now – what better time to reduce government waste than the present? These people can find new jobs in the private sector and contribute to the economy in a meaningful way if they want.
THE BOTTOM LINE
President Trump does not need to declare a national emergency to get the funding he says he needs to improve security on the border with Mexico. He already has all the funding he needs.
If the American people were better informed about how their government operates, they would write Congress and tell them to immediately eliminate the “not needed” non-essential federal workforce; redirect $5.7 Billion of that savings to border security for the President, and use any remaining savings achieved by cutting the federal workforce to pay down the national debt which is approaching catastrophic levels.
Hidden behind the well funded political and media propaganda machines, there is a secret that the elites in Washington D.C., New York and the West Coast don’t want Americans to know about.
Now you know the secret. The current government shutdown is a charade that is hiding a golden opportunity to begin eliminating government waste; fund higher priorities such as reducing the national debt and protecting our borders.
This plan can do all that and more if more Americans wake up to what is really happening in their government.
