Pelosi Statement on Trump Administration’s Government Reorganization Proposal


Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after the Trump Administration announced a plan to dismantle key federal departments and agencies:

“Nothing about the Trump Administration’s behavior indicates it has any clue how to make government run more smoothly or efficiently for the American people.  The only purpose of the Administration’s reorganization is to make it easier to demonize and dismantle our investments in public education, students, teachers, workers, veterans and hungry families trying to make ends meet.

“The Trump Administration’s reckless reorganization proposal is a recipe for more bureaucratic, inefficient and unresponsive government – and sadly, that’s exactly Republicans’ purpose.  The GOP wants to ensure that the federal government is less effective at protecting workers’ wages, less vigilant in guarding students’ rights, and less capable of protecting a basic standard of living for families in our country.

“At every turn, Republicans in the White House and Congress are sticking the American people with a raw deal on their health, education and economic security.  Democrats will continue to fight to give the American people A Better Deal, with Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Futures.”
