President Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order creating a new classification of policy-making federal employees that could strip swaths of the federal workforce of civil service protections just before the next president is sworn into office.
The order would create a new Schedule F within the excepted service of the federal government, to be composed of employees in confidential, policy-determining, policy-making, or policy-advocating positions, and instructs agency heads to determine which current employees fit this definition and move themwhether they are members of the competitive service or other schedules within the excepted serviceinto this new classification.

As if unelected government positions werent already plliticized.
Draining the swamp!
Aww. After all that time and effort on the long march through the institution, too.
Get rid of the second level of management of the FBI below those who need congressional approval
Does President Trump sleep?
I get tired just reading what he accomplishes :)
Past time to rescind Executive Order 10988.
Government employees at all levels are the MOST protected employees that exist in America
They work less, get paid more, have iron-clad benefits, rarely get fired, and never get laid-off.
Good move. President should have right to replace any and all government workers.
Set swamp phasers to Stunne.
As I understand it he only sleeps around 4 hours a night.
The White House argued that the executive order is a necessary reform to ensure that federal officials can more efficiently remove poor performers.
Effective performance management of employees in confidential, policy-determining, policy-making or policy-advocating positions is of the utmost importance, the order states. Unfortunately, the governments current performance management is inadequate, as recognized by federal workers themselves. For instance, the 2016 Merit Principles Survey reveals that less than a quarter of federal employees believe their agency addresses poor performers effectively.
The Swamp doesn’t want to be drained.
With all the Socialist Public Sector Unions out there, you listening AFSCME..., this is LONG over due.
employees in confidential, policy-determining, policy-making, or policy-advocating positions,
I would start my discussion by saying these are useless positions anyway, and under no one’s observation or control.
And wait for counter arguments. I will wait and see.
Wish hed done this 3 and a half years ago. Drain the Swamp.
See how everything evens out?
I’m active 4 hours a day :)
Washington, DC is in dire need of an industrial strength enema.
I’m all in favor of this EO it the “F” stands for “fornicated” or “flushable”...
