Here's what WON looks like:

NUKE THE UNCONSTITUTIONAL EPA!!!

The Constitution gives the feds no authority in "environmental " issues. Environmental issues belong to the states

there are supposedly 153,000 or so employees- if everyone of them got say around $100,000 a year, (with everything included)- that was over $1,500,000,000 being spent on nonsense every year- worthless ‘jobs’ (more like hang outs with friends during the day- where they do nothing but spend our money on nonsense)

I say good riddance-

and like someone said- 1000’s either quit or were laid off and the agency was still able to function? How many ‘non essential obs’ were there anyways?

Swamp: 0 (as in goose egg)

Trump: 700 (as in kicking some major ass!)

The Environmental Protection Agency has shrunk considerably since Scott Pruitt took over as administrator. In fact, the agency is back to President Reagan-era staff levels.

Over 700 EPA personnel have either retired, quit, or taken voluntary buyouts since Pruitt took over...

What draining the swamp looks like.

Trump has followed through on his promises about as much as any man could have.

That’d be one teeny tiny drop in one huge honking bucket there, friend.

But it’s more than we’ve gotten in many years.

"Over 700 EPA personnel have either retired, quit, or taken voluntary buyouts since Pruitt took over..."

Good start! However, that leaves 15408 - 700 = 14708 to go...

Maybe they can get some personnel who really want to protect the environment and not wage war on capitalism.
