    Deep States response to the swamp draining:
    "Employees, congressional Democrats and a bipartisan coalition of former USDA leaders" have warned that the move "would devastate the two agencies," per the Post. ERS and NIFA have both recently unionized and some "union officials have promised to fight the move."

    "Devastate the agencies"?

    Since when did they start believing that the devastation of their agencies mattered in contrast to serving the American people as they are supposed to?

    How are the USDA suits going to do their jobs where food is produced without a Starbucks on every corner?

    That's because all the USDA does these days is hand out food stamps.

    Going from feeding the zombie horde to accomplishing productive endeavors will be a rough "devastating" change indeed.

    Moving bureaucrats out of D.C. won't make them any less bureaucratic.

    If we have a USDA at all...

    It should be engaged in front-line agricultural pursuits...

    Farming...

    Veterinary medicine for farm animals...

    Other matters concerned primarily with actual food production...

    And that's really about it...

    Everything else that it currently does can be shifted to other more symmetrical agencies like Health...

    ---------

    While we're at it...

    Time to split Health and Human Services into...

    1. US Department of Health...

    2. US Department of Human Services...

    Just to keep the missions and budgets straight...

    An emergent US Department of Human Services would help us get a better handle on the true cost of Welfare...

    ----------

    As to moving USDA Researchers out into the field...

    Great idea...

    Time to get their a$$e$ out in the bush where they belong, and...

    If they piss and moan about it too much...

    There are plenty of eager-beaver young-bloods in research just dying to get their chance to get their own foot in the door...
