OMB Director Set to Tell Agencies to Prep for Substantial Cuts

Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney is reportedly slated to send a letter to federal agencies later this week warning them to prep for substantial budget cuts.

The guidance letter falls in line with President Donald Trump’s March 13 executive order aimed at making the government leaner and more efficient, Axios first reported.

The order called on Mulvaney, a staunch fiscal conservative and former member of the House Freedom Caucus, to “propose a plan to reorganize governmental functions and eliminate unnecessary agencies (as defined in section 551(1) of title 5, United States Code), components of agencies, and agency programs.”

Trump’s budget called for historic cuts to a number of agencies—including a 31 percent cut to the Environmental Protection Agency, a 28 percent cut to the State Department, and a 17.9 percent cut to the Department of Health and Human Services.

 While a number of the departments’ budgets would be slashed, the Department of Defense would see a 10 percent boost in spending.

The president’s proposal to decrease State Department funding has received pushback from both sides of the aisle. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said in February cuts to the State Department would be a disaster, saying if we take the “soft power off the table then you’re never going to win the war.

According to Axios, updates on the state of the budget should be expected throughout the year with a final proposal being rolled out in the 2019 budget coming in April.

Charlie Daniels: DC’s Party Before People Mindset Is Tearing the Country Apart

Quote:So, the powers that be should chop both logs and let the ships seek their own landing place unimpeded by partisan politics.

That's what should be done, but is it possible in the current political climate?

Are there enough honorable men and women left on Capitol Hill to pursue the unvarnished truth to an inconvenient end?

Are there enough patriots left who would feel duty bound to ignore the “R” or “D” next to their name and actually put the country they serve and the constitution they are sworn to uphold first and foremost in their efforts?

Has America reached the point of no return, where politicians seek to divide rather than unite, where childish one-upsmanship goes before conscience, or does conscience or common sense even figure into the equation anymore? Will the opposing factors keep on swallowing each other until they both become totally impotent and just lie there and die?
What do you think?

Pray for our troops, our police, our government and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America
