Want to make federal employees easier to fire?. By James Simpson
Project Veritas just released its latest undercover video, "Unmasking the Deep State." This first video focuses on a State Department employee who is both a poster child for the Deep State and a perfect example of why the federal bureaucracy needs serious reform. Providentially, there is new legislation being considered in Congress that would do just that: the Merit Act (H.R. 559). The Merit Act would greatly streamline the process for firing employees who are poor performers, insubordinate, or otherwise engaged in misconduct. Since the election of President Trump, the bureaucracy, including numerous holdovers from the Obama administration, has been engaged in an unprecedented level of obstruction, leaks, and sabotage. These bad actors call it "resistance." FBI and Department of Justice misconduct in the Trump-Russia probe and the Clinton email scandal is only the most visible component.
