President Donald Trump Is Reversing Credential Inflation in the Federal Workforce

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “On Friday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order directing federal agencies to fill job vacancies based on merit, rather than require a minimum level of education for candidates seeking open positions,” Preston Cooper reports for Forbes.
 
“Credential inflation shuts out experienced, qualified job candidates who are perfectly capable of filling certain roles simply because they lack the right piece of paper . . . Most perniciously, it convinces young job seekers that they need a bachelor’s degree or even a graduate degree to succeed.”

Lamar Alexander says to Tear Down Andrew Jackson’s Statue would be a Terrible Misunderstanding of Our Nation’s History

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. –  U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) yesterday afternoon on the Senate floor said, “We should not try to erase our history. We should not try to pretend it doesn’t exist,” in response to an effort by a crowd to tear down President Andrew Jackson’s statue in Lafayette Square in front of the White House:

“Presidential historians almost without exception put Andrew Jackson in the top ten of America’s presidents. They see him as a sophisticated, often subtle political actor who without his devotion to the union, against his own local political interests, the union might well have fallen apart in 1832 or 1833,” said Senator Alexander.
