Tell Congress to Fire the Swamp!

The Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs can legally fire bad federal employees much faster than other agencies. Under legislation by U.S. Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.) and Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.), this power would be extended to all Cabinet secretaries. Tell Congress to get it done now!

Every member of Congress should support the MERIT Act, which would expedite the removal of federal employees who have engaged in misconduct or are simply not performing, while limiting appeals to 30 days. Under current law it can take multiple years to remove an employee. A system that was initially designed to stop political manipulation of the civil service has become an unhealthy protection of bad behavior.

Many Americans wonder how civil servants at the Justice Department who abused their power still have their jobs. The reason is because of antiquated civil service protections. Congress has already managed to reform this problem at the Department of Veterans Affairs, and it’s working, now it needs to be allowed to work for all the other departments and agencies to hold federal employees accountable for their actions.

This is a bill whose time has come.

Any business worth it's salt would fire an employee who isn't doing their job or engaging in any form of misconduct. It's ludicrous that a public employee should be able to get by with not doing their job or engaging in behavior they shouldn't be engaged in. They should be fired immediately.
