Unconstitutional Federal Government Agencies (Partial Listing)

Reject Unconstitutional Federal Government AgenciesGiven our current United States government is nearing $20 trillion in debt, and is going into debt at an average of $2 million per minute. I think it would behoove us to look into their current expenses to see what they could try to do without.

The following list is a partial compilation of various federal government agencies that have developed over the past 200 years and continue to stay with us. Since I’m not running for public office, I can advocate for the elimination of these offices and agencies. When reading down through the list, think of all the heads and sub-heads of each earning hundreds of thousands of dollars per year plus a lucrative benefits package, plus all the staff that has to be paid as well—all out of taxes that are collected at the barrel of a police officer’s gun. Then, think of all the people in the U.S. who have become accustomed to receiving some form of benefit or another from these agencies and you will soon see why it is political suicide for any politician to ever advocate for scaling down or cutting back any, or all, of these expenses.

The only criteria I have used to compile this list (which is from the U.S. Government Manual) is if the agency, corporation or administration is not specifically authorized to exist by the U.S. Constitution which is still the Supreme Law of the Land.

Now, considering the debt load of the following agencies and administrations, is it any wonder we are $20 trillion in debt? Absent a U.S. Congress who is willing to eliminate these untenable costs, is there any hope of us reigning in uncontrollable spending?

  1. Is President Trump going thru all of these offices and see how many we can get rid of. I am also sure each one has another 100 or so sub positions.
