Even with the help of a Republican-controlled Congress, the Trump Administration is finding it more difficult to drain the swamp than they anticipated.
Politico published an article this morning entitled “Revenge of the Bureaucrats” that outlines the myriad ways DC’s bureaucratic leviathan can impede the President’s agenda. These include leaking information to Capitol Hill and the press, prodding inspectors general to probe political appointees, and using the tools of bureaucracy to slow or sandbag policy proposals. All of these moves, Politico warns, “can overtly, or passive aggressively, unravel a White House’s best-laid plans.”
One President cannot root out his bureaucratic nightmare. The swamp has been growing for decades, and it will take more than eight years to clean it up.
The only way to remove the corrosive bureaucratic structure in Washington is to call and convene an Article V Convention of States. A Convention of States goes around federal agencies and regulations to get at the heart of the problem: faulty constitutional interpretations.
The Supreme Court has for decades interpreted the Constitution to allow the federal government to gain more power. A Convention of States can propose amendments to the Constitution to correct these interpretations. Delegates can propose amendments to require a balanced budget, impose term limits, and most importantly, limit the power and jurisdiction of federal bureaucrats.
