 It’s about time the American people had some hard facts regarding the federal bureaucracy.
In our recently published broadside, Operation Drain The Swampwe expose it all. We showcase who receives how much, where they work, and what they do. Most importantly, we reveal how much these bureaucrats cost the American taxpayer. 
Here are just a couple of key findings in the book:
  • Federal bureaucrats, on average, receive 43 days of paid time off (PTO). It’s 8.5 weeks per year: 10 holidays, 13 sick days, and 20 vacation days. This costs the American taxpayer up to $23 billion.
  • Compensating the federal workforce is expensive. The federal government pays its 2 million disclosed employees $1.1 million per minute, $65.6 million per hour, and more than half a billion dollars per day. 
  • The federal government doled out $1.5 billion in bonuses in 2016 but disclosed just 330,000 bonuses for $351 million. More than 1 million "performance" bonuses for $1.1 billion went undisclosed. 
Operation Drain the Swamp was published by Roger Kimball, New Criterion Press.
