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

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.

The rest of the time they can spend with us schlubs that elected them.
This idea is more civilized than blowing the place up.
How about Leavenworth?
This will make the government employee bureaucrats wet themselves.
That giant sucking sound is the whoosh created by the collapse of the Maryland and Northern Virginia property markets.
I like it
Spread the GD beast all over the backwaters of the nation. Nobody would work for it. The lobbyists couldn’t do their evil deeds. People with tar, feathers, pitchforks, torches and rails would have much easier access to their tormenters. It’s a win, win, win, win all the way around.
We need to find out what we can move, said Rep. Tim Ryan, a Democrat from Youngstown, Ohio.
Ryan is asking the wrong question. It should be “What little, itty bitty part of the government really, truly needs to stay in Washington DC?”
International Falls would be perfect in the wintertime
Move them to Cuba!
Oh No, can’t have that.
Anyone who’s been to DC understands the reality of the place: gilded offices, opulent streets and buildings, leafy suburbs filled with expensive neo colonial houses and late model cars.
The bureautrash will only leave when they are dragged out by wild horses.
Walking around the place just astounded me. All I could think of was, “so this is where all the money goes to”.
Ring with guards, sensors, drone patrols.
Ankle bracelets for the residents.
Spending billions of dollars to set up other locations and to move the bureaucrats out there will accomplish what exactly? Same functions. Same procedures. Same bureaucracies. Same results. Just money down a rat hole.
Remove all the swamp monsters from Northern Virginia, and it would be a red state again!
half there and half Barrow Alaska
Boss Trump.45 has gotta be channeling me!!!!!!
How great we are!

“Why not Minot?” A phrase made famous by Air Force recruiters for a long time now.
Minot, North Dakota is in the middle of vast empty prairie and on 30° below zero winter nights outside of town you feel like you could touch the stars.
Another plus is that North Dakotans are a practical phlegmatic people and they’re very, very good at cards. At least some of the money we waste on government salaries would end up in their hands.
