https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press...zing-executive

COMPREHENSIVE PLAN FOR REORGANIZING THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Purpose. This order is intended to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and accountability of the executive branch by directing the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (Director) 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.

Sec. 2. Proposed Plan to Improve the Efficiency, Effectiveness, and Accountability of Federal Agencies, Including, as Appropriate, to Eliminate or Reorganize Unnecessary or Redundant Federal Agencies. (a) Within 180 days of the date of this order, the head of each agency shall submit to the Director a proposed plan to reorganize the agency, if appropriate, in order to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and accountability of that agency.

(b) The Director shall publish a notice in the Federal Register inviting the public to suggest improvements in the organization and functioning of the executive branch and shall consider the suggestions when formulating the proposed plan described in subsection (c) of this section.

(c) Within 180 days after the closing date for the submission of suggestions pursuant to subsection (b) of this section, the Director shall submit to the President a proposed plan to reorganize the executive branch in order to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and accountability of agencies. The proposed plan shall include, as appropriate, recommendations to eliminate unnecessary agencies, components of agencies, and agency programs, and to merge functions. The proposed plan shall include recommendations for any legislation or administrative measures necessary to achieve the proposed reorganization.

(d) In developing the proposed plan described in subsection (c) of this section, the Director shall consider, in addition to any other relevant factors:

(i) whether some or all of the functions of an agency, a component, or a program are appropriate for the Federal Government or would be better left to State or local governments or to the private sector through free enterprise;

(ii) whether some or all of the functions of an agency, a component, or a program are redundant, including with those of another agency, component, or program;

(iii) whether certain administrative capabilities necessary for operating an agency, a component, or a program are redundant with those of another agency, component, or program;

(iv) whether the costs of continuing to operate an agency, a component, or a program are justified by the public benefits it provides; and

(v) the costs of shutting down or merging agencies, components, or programs, including the costs of addressing the equities of affected agency staff.

(e) In developing the proposed plan described in subsection (c) of this section, the Director shall consult with the head of each agency and, consistent with applicable law, with persons or entities outside the Federal Government with relevant expertise in organizational structure and management.

Sec. 3. General Provisions. (a) Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

(i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or

(ii) the functions of the Director relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

(b) This order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

(c) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

Maybe in a small way. The problem with the way he is doing it, it's only a temporary thing. He needs to start staying on message with just 3 items and get them through Congress. Otherwise, you'll be witnessing a one term and done President. When the Democrats control the White House, they are free to undo whatever Trump is doing today.

President Trump, with this EO is undoing what Obama has done. He is eliminating all the fat and the agency Czars that Obama put in place. Do you have any idea how many Obama Czars are on payroll right now? Look it up. Google is your friend.

Congress cannot undo this, the President has the sole ability to do this.

In case you were asleep, President Trump has indicated to Congress that his budget proposal will make significant cuts in worthless agencies like the EP and others.

He his attacking this from both side, removing Obama's inflated super fat bureaucracy and working with Congress to reduce spending on worthless alphabet agencies and at the same time increase spending on ultra important things like our depleted Military.

No need to fret, Your President has got your back.

Trump is precisely the president we need. Now if I were to "build a president" from scratch I would include many of Donald Trump's attributes in that design . . . but I would leave many other of Donald Trump's attributes out of the design. But we DON'T get to design presidents. I would gladly vote for any other more civil, self-controlled, self-effacing politician who had the balls needed to reform our government and the clear vision to reform our government along the lines Trump is pursuing. But those alternatives do not exist. I would many times over put up with the downside of Trump . . . so long as I get this upside of Trump too . . . rather than put up with some wimp Republican happy boy who is going to cave in to the news media and the Democrats so he can be well liked. Screw that.


Yes, government IS the problem. It is too big and too expensive. It also appears to be a force of opposition on its own -- which it is not supposed to be (bureaucrats are not elected and not answerable to the people). Cut that 4hit down to size. Likewise with our commitments to foreign aid to foreign governments. It doesn't seem to buy us much, so cut that 4hit down to size. Make NATO member states pay their agreed upon shares. Cut the UN down: it doesn't seem to be anything other than beat up the US at every turn.


Trump is the medicine we need. Truly.

FM that's the problem with the way the last 20 years has went .... President have too much power in their Executive Orders.

I've love to see congress limit what the POTUS can do and maybe they will in the next few years.

But I hate the Fed Govt right now as it sits, and if Trump can clean it up then I'm ok with doing it however he has to do it. The problem is what if he doesn't do it how we, the people who elected him want him to ?

Dangerous times - but that's where we are

That's supposedly the demise of Obama's legacy because much of what Obama did was by executive order. The problem right now is that Obama did get the ACA passed. Even though it is a stinker, and IMO designed to fail, leading to a public outcry for single payer, Trump just can't get rid of it because it is the law. What Trump should be doing right now is placing the greatest emphasis on true repeal. I'm afraid what will happen is that something...anything will get passed and Trump will be happy to sign anything that gets to him. Even though it will be completely useless he will no doubt call it the greatest piece of legislation passed by any President.

The real shame is that the Democrats are the minority, and they are still driving the agenda.

bingo, very much still in control. It's why we now have Trumpcare instead of a repeal of Obamacare.

The one executive order Trump should do is get rid of the order in which Congress is treated as a small business and therefore exempt from Obamacare. See how quickly it gets repealed.

As for Trump's budgets. He needs to be willing to shutdown the government. So far I don't see it happening. He seems very standoffish when it comes to Congress. The Trumpcare is following the same course as Obamacare. Let Congress have their way and then take credit for afterwards.

It took Obama and the Democrats 8 years to put us where we are today. I wouldn't expect Trump to clean that all up in the first 55 days. I see him as doing or trying to do what he promised. The healthcare is a huge issue and one that won't be fixed overnight. So far I give Trump kudos for what he is doing. Draining the swamp is going to take the whole term IMO. This guy won't be a punching bag like previous POTUS have been.
