FIRETHESWAMP.COM banner flies across D.C.-Metro area, video exclusive from Fox 5 DC as ALG urges cosponsors for MERIT Act

June 28, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging cosponsors for the MERIT Act by U.S. Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.) as the organization flew a banner reading FIRETHESWAMP.COM across the D.C.-Metro area as federal workers commuted to D.C. earning video coverage from Fox 5 DC:

“In this day and age with an unaccountable administrative state, the only way to drain the swamp is to fire the swamp. The MERIT Act mirrors language passed by the House last year reforming the Department of Veterans Affairs, expediting the firing of non-performing federal employees, expanding the process across all departments and agencies. Please contact U.S. Rep. Barry Loudermilk’s office and join 54 House members in cosponsoring this important legislation.”
