Drain The Swamp: EPA Shed 1,200 Jobs In Trumpís First Year And A Half

Excerpt:

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) shed approximately 1,200 jobs as roughly 1,600 employees departed and fewer than 400 new employees were hired during President Donald Trumpís first year and a half in office.

Departing employees included ďat least 260 scientists, 185 Ďenvironmental protection specialistsí and 106 engineers,Ē according to the Washington Post.

The EPAís workforce is now down 8 percent to a size it has not been since former president Ronald Reagan was in office, reported the WaPo.

ďWith nearly half of our employees eligible to retire in the next five years, my priority is recruiting and maintaining the right staff, the right people for our mission, rather than total full-time employees,Ē EPA Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler said in a statement according to the WaPo.

Nearly 25 percent of the EPAís 13,758 employees are eligible for retirement, reported the WaPo. Many employees have accepted buyouts, especially in 2017.

At its most bloated, the EPA had more than 18,000 employees, reported the WaPo

More good news, though I'd be happier if the EPA was eliminated altogether.

There are a couple of alphabet agencies that need a thorough razing and then rebuild.

Trust me when I say that would be very bad. I've seen firsthand how industry and cities handle their waste when no one is looking.

They do need to be taken down a few pegs though. Cut about 25% should do it, and target the regional director level

Eliminate no, get their Nazi esq asses under control and make them understand they are not invincible and accountable yes.
Much like how Green Bay was just a couple years ago where Code Enforcement felt they could walk around peoples property when ever they felt like it, even when there was no complaint and no reason. And yes, I had not just a Code Enforcement 'person' tell me this, but the Supervisor for my part of town even.
I wasn't the only person who was livid as all the Aldermen where getting an earful and things finally where dealt with.

KNOW, most are actually decent and only step foot on property without permission when they are following up on something or it's an extreme situation, not when ever they feel like it. This is how the E.P.A. should operate. People are much more co operative when you are respectful to property rights, professional, decent, and not on a f'ng power trip.

Also thinking that our code Nazi's realized they aren't cops, and sooner or later someone was going to find themselves looking at the business end of a 12 gauge as someone was going to be treating them as a trespasser/burglar. E.P.A. is known to act much the same way.
Honestly surprised more of their agents have not been shot over the years.

Making sure it isn't a dream job for enviro Nazi's would be a great start as well.
And yeah, absolutely, the E.P.A. is still needed. But they need to be taken down a couple notches to act in accordance with the law, not like f'ng Nazi's. Not all do this, but enough of them do that it's a problem. Plus, NO AGENCY should be writing the laws they are to enforce. We would never allow any other agency this, last thing we need to do is allow this for the E.P.A.
