I know what I am going to be doing this weekend and for weeks to come: reviewing the slew of Executive Orders (EOs) President Trump will be initiating to roll back and redirect the Federal Government. These Trump EOs will undo years of EOs under former President Obama.
These EOs will be the first, the most transparent, sign of where Trump is heading. These initial EOs will point the direction Trump plans to head.
Moreover, these EOs will not be filtered through – watered down – by the GOP Establishment in Congress. Which is why I intend to invest a lot of time dissecting them and their potential impact on our runaway federal government.
There are a lot of good programs sprinkled throughout the mess that is the federal bureaucracy. I would wager about 65% of the goals or intentions are solid, but maybe only 35% of the implementations are worth pursuing (mostly due to parallel stove-pipe programs which undo each other instead of working in a synergistic manner). That means a lot of upheaval, but also a lot of potential savings and efficiencies.
With the Political Industrial Complex screaming all the way. They will complain something is being eliminated when in fact it may be just a merging of failed programs into a direction which will work more efficiently. Be ready – this will the the Fake News MO for our indefinite future.
Here is the first teaser, with some actual information coming out later today:
Conway said the president-elect will “take a couple of executive actions” Friday, and then by Monday she predicted “you’ll see him rolling back some of the job killing regulations” that he considers to be “unconstitutional measures.”
When asked whether that would include environmental regulations, Conway said “possibly, yes.”
“He’s got a five or six-point plan in short order,” Conway said of Mr. Trump’s first few weeks in office. “Repealing and replacing Obamacare, regulatory reviews, tax reform…we’re looking for cooperation across the aisle.”
Honestly, I cannot wait until the EOs start flying!
