Government doing the (Republican) People's business.

Perhaps the Administration forgot, but they were elected to do all the People's business. You run for office as a member of a political party, but when you are elected you are supposed to do the business of all of the people of our United States. We should not, and do not, live in a "winner take all" republic, where you get to plunder and burn the villages of the vanquished.

The Hatch Act explicitly prohibits partisan campaign activity on federal property. I may be in the minority on this, but I will say it anyway. I believe that almost all government activity, conducted by political appointees, and new hires to various government agencies, was severely partisan over the past six years. That is, until recently, the government was doing Republican business not the Peoples business.

Here is just one example.
