Localism used by local governments.  Isn’t that what the Founding Fathers had in mind?

Pension reform, hiring freezes of government jobs, and we are starting to see signs that this is ready to spread throughout the States.  And, it is happening with bi-partisan support.

It’s called Federalism.

Is this a part of the Trump-Effect?

Bill Whittle: “They (public employees) are not going to go quietly into the night…but their standards cannot be met.”

States are laboratories of liberty, and if this begins to work at the State level, how long before this kind of good governance spills into the federal government?

Trump is already looking at cutting federal jobs. . . therefore, federal spending.  Reducing the size of the government, and government spending, is smart at any level of government, be it federal, the States, or in our cities.
