ALG Foundation releases report of federal civil service abuses and reform

Sept. 5, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government Foundation President Rick Manning today issued the following statement upon releasing the report, “Abuse and inefficiency rampant within U.S. civil service”:

“In order to limit the government and drain the swamp, managers in the federal government must be able to fire poor performing employees on an expedited basis. Right now, the current system protects bad employees. What was supposed to be a merit system has turned into an entitlement system for insulated, unaccountable federal employees. To drain the swamp, we have to be able to fire the swamp.”
