Extended shutdown exposes the pathetic laziness and entitled attitudes of 80% of federal workers, says administration insider

In an anonymous op-ed for The Daily Caller, someone claiming to be a “senior Trump official” who is “working without a paycheck” came out in staunch support of the president’s continuing strategy of keeping the partial government shutdown in place while he waits for majority Democrats in the House to negotiate a deal with him that includes funding for his border wall.

But the official is not writing in support of the president’s policy per se. He/she has another motivation: To strip the government of dead weight, saving taxpayers billions in payroll and regulatory costs, while paring down government to a more manageable, functional, responsive entity.

“As one of the senior officials working without a paycheck, a few words of advice for the president’s next move at shuttered government agencies: lock the doors, sell the furniture, and cut them down,” the official writes.

“Federal employees are starting to feel the strain of the shutdown. I am one of them. But for the sake of our nation, I hope it lasts a very long time, till the government is changed and can never return to its previous form,” the official noted further.

On any given day, the official continued, “roughly 15 percent” of workers he/she comes in contact with are very good, very conscientious, and patriotic servants of We the People who deserve larger salaries for the great work they perform.

But “80 percent” of the rest lack motivation and work ethic and are under “no pressure” whatsoever to be productive on behalf of the country and its people. The official notes that if the vast majority of federal workers he/she sees daily don’t want to do what they’re told, they don’t — and because of federal employment rules it’s virtually impossible to get rid of them.

“They avoid attention, plan their weekend, schedule vacation, their second job, their next position — some do this in the same position for more than a decade,” the official writes in what is, no doubt, a scathing indictment of fat, bloated big government.

These federal employees, the official notes, don’t really do anything that would warrant their firing, but they aren’t doing anything of value, either. They coast through days “administering, refining, following and collaborating on process,” the official wrote.
