One of the main reason we voted for President Trump is that he is the best fiscal responsibility expert…well maybe in the world. That’s why he’s rich.
The budget that Donald Trump is expected to send to Congress this week will include cuts to the federal government that the country hasn’t seen in 70 years.
The savings come from a cut in the amount spent on Michelle Obama’s budget as First Lady, an end to the large number of “czars” and so-called “fellowships” that Obama employed, and a smaller White House workforce, Forbes magazine reported.
After the White House released its annual budget report last week, Adam Andrzejewski, president of government watchdog group OpenTheBooks.com, compared the newly reported budget to the last two years of the Obama administration.
Andrzejewski (pronounced And-gee-eff-ski) noted that there are now 110 fewer White House workers since Obama left office, saving nearly $5 million alone.
Also, the First Lady’s staff has been cut from 24 staffers to only five. Michelle Obama entered the White House with a staff of 22 costing nearly $2 million annually, up from the $1.4 million spent during the George W. Bush era.
Another area of savings was the elimination of the so-called policy “czars” with which Obama stocked the White House staff. The Trump budget shows not a single “czar” employed for 2017.
Trump also seems to have ended Obama’s shady “fellowship” positions, people responsible for such special programs as Michelle Obama’s “Let Girls Learn” initiative and others. Some of these “fellowship” candidates in Obama’s administration made up to $158,000 annually.
Finally a man with some common sense about money… our money. Drastic cuts are needed because it is a fact that our Federal budget has been out of control for many, many years! Thank you, Mr. President, it was about time for somebody to do something about this!
This wouldn’t be needed if prior leaders had been more responsible and not doing favors for votes. The waste has been out of control for a long time. Now it is time to pay the piper.
