In a speech on Monday in Florida, the Republican presidential candidate unveiled his plan for "disrupting" Washington by downsizing the federal government.
Bush's plan takes aim at the federal budget. He proposes cutting the number of federal employees by at least 10% and radically overhauling the budget process to require a balanced budget, a controversial prescription popular with the conservative base.
"It will not be my intention to preside over the establishment, but in every way I know to disrupt that establishment and make it accountable to the people," Bush said.
Bush says that he will institute a policy of hiring one employee for every three who leave when it comes to federal hiring, with the exception of national-security related jobs. Bush suggested that federal agencies shouldn't replace many workers who retire — according to the governor, 10% of the federal workforce will retire within the next five years, and "not everyone who leaves has to be replaced."
And then there's this:
- Merit pay. Bush claims too many mediocre federal employees are being paid the same as exemplary employees. Though he didn't delve too far into specifics on this point, the former Florida governor said that he'll make it easier to fire bad federal employees.
It seems both the rhetoric and policies of Jeb's education reform agenda will now be leveled at the federal government and federal workers too.
Can "turnarounds" for federal departments be far behind?
Maybe receivership for some federal departments, with goals to be hit or the whole thing gets turned over to a non-profit charter entity?
Oh, the ideas for bringing education reform ideas to Washington government are limitless.
May I recommend merit pay for presidential candidates? Donald Trump is providing the most creative solutions to American challenges both domestic and foreign. Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton are neck and neck for the most tiresome candidates. Tea Partiers are difficult to distinguish one from another. The winner in the lack of merit category is Chris Christie. He is against Common Core, Planned Parenthood, public service pensions and burdensome taxes for the wealthy. He supports charter schools, vouchers, tenure abolishment, VAM, merit pay for teachers, standardized testing.ReplyDelete
I'm excited about Trump. The cynic in me thinks the American Empire is in its last throes and methinks President Trump will finish it all off. I hope something better replaces it...Delete
Jeb Bush is cooking his own gooseReplyDelete
He's going to have $500 million to run on before it's all said and done.Delete
With that kind of cash, hard to bet against him.
If Jebby and his scurrilous brothers had to subsist on merit pay for their own performances they'd have their own wing at the city shelter. Another fatass loudmouth born on third base trying to tell us all how he hit that triple.ReplyDelete
That's true for many of these proponents of merit pay. Campbell Brown paid by the ratings when she had the 8 PM show, well, she'd have been making less than QVC. Her ratings were in the toilet.Delete
