Trump's Hiring Freeze Moves From Hatchet to Scalpel
Apr 13, 2017, 01:26
The president signed the memorandum in January freezing large portions of federal government hiring, barring the military and positions deemed necessary for national security and public safety.
Mulvaney called the new approach "more practicable and smarter" and says it will be based on Trump's initial budget proposal, which called for widespread cuts to several agencies including the EPA, while building up others, including Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection.
While there are many efforts to make government better, Mulvaney said, "this is something that goes much deeper and to the very structure of government". That's freaky and it would only happen in government and what you have in Trump, who is sort of a businessman-in -chief, said look, we are going to take, this private sector concept and bring it to the executive branch.
Mulvaney says under the new guidance, some agencies will wind up hiring more people, while others will end up "paring" the number of employees "even greater than they would have during the hiring freeze". "Really what you're talking about doing is restructuring Washington, D.C., and that is how you drain the swamp, so this is a centerpiece of his campaign and a centerpiece of his administration". Mulvaney said in some cases, that could mean consolidating programs spread across multiple agencies under a single office or department. Historically, Congress has worked more enthusiastically with presidents to add to the government and to consolidate some functions, such as homeland security responsibilities, rather than subtract.
In the bare bones budget issued last month, the White House did not offer many specific details on how the budget cuts would be achieved.
