On Monday, President Trump released an Executive Order entitled COMPREHENSIVE PLAN FOR REORGANIZING THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH. Wily E. Coyote, SuperGenius (tm), at his site, is touting how "the grand offensive" against the "Deep State" is back on.

The Executive Order tells the Cabinet to spend 180 days coming up with a plan to reduce their agencies, including a public comment period.

If that sounds rather mild for an offensive, that's because it is. If followed to the letter, the end result is a report. Unless Congress acts on the report, nothing further will happen. Given the snail-like speed of Congress so far, I think even the most questionable of agencies is safe. Anybody who was really serious about reducing government would have at least the outlines of a plan already to hand.

To shorter myself - making proclamations is easy, governing is hard.
