Your lack of empathy for military families and taxpayers is sad.

I know this administration wants to break up different agencies and get them out of DC as a cost cutting measure. Great idea.

Oh, ok.

Yeah, I feel bad for them as well. Nobody likes to move. It's stressful and it's a PITA.

Regardless, it's the right thing to do.

Ever heard of phone calls, emails and video conferencing?

We actually need House and Senate members to permanently work in their districts, only taking trips to DC for certain events.

Everything else can be done remotely.

The whole DC area is a cess pool of government and government contractors. More agencies should be moved out to drain that swamp.

What is the point in "getting them out" of DC other than removing expertise, since when is Trump concerned about cutting costs whether its his cabinets vacations on the taxpayer or his trips to Florida.

If the Dotard wanted to save money, maybe he should stop playing golf so much and forcing the military and others to stay at his resorts which cost so much more than other places. This move was pure political and just outright mean.
I liked Kansas City when I went there for a work trip but the place didn't like me. Every time I went outdoors, I cried. Must have been something in the air I was allergic to.
