Spread the swamp? Trump administration wants to move government offices out of Washington

Via Billy

Amid the talk of draining swamps, restoring political might to blue-collar America and turning off the spigot of taxpayer cash that showers Washington, a familiar battle cry is ricocheting through this city: Move the bureaucrats out.

It has the ring of a Trumpian fantasy. Dislodge arms of the federal government from Washington and reattach them in faraway places, spreading the wealth generated by these well-paid agency workforces and forcing senior bureaucrats to face the people they affect.

But the idea has established populist roots that spread across party lines, and they are reemerging at this unique political moment.


  1. Having lived in the District of Columbia, I think relocating the nation's capital is an excellent idea, but for an obvious reason that no one dares speak of, i.e., to escape the gorilla in the elevator, i.e., the anti-white racial hostility of the black majority population, which also constitutes the local government in the District of Columbia, and has made the crumbling buildings and streets resemble an impoverished, war-torn, DANGEROUS Third World community.

  2. The politicians can telecommute from their state and the government employees jobs can be sublet to Indian call centers and H1B vista holders just to give them an idea about how their politics works.

      Hilarious, yet sadly true. Let them work with, and enjoy, their own "law".
