senate Bill S. 3487

Should Candidates’ Teams & the General Services Administration Collaborate to Improve Presidential Transitions?

Argument in favor

Presidential transitions aren’t sufficiently planned out in advance of Inauguration Day. Ensuring that each presidential candidate’s transition representative coordinates with the General Services Administration will help with more advance planning for transitions.

Yes they should and often do - however in Trumpster’s case I didn’t happen and that’s obvious to anyone who knows even the slightest about transitions. Good book on the subject is “The Fifth Risk”. We will need to change things to assure that even Autocrats like Trump.

S. 3487 AKA - Presidential Transition Enhancement Act I’m in strong agreement with and support the passage of the SENATE bill S. 3487 AKA the Presidential Transition Enhancement Act of 2018 which would aim to improve the orderly transfer of the executive power during presidential transitions. It’d require the Administrator of the General Services Administration (GSA) to enter into a memorandum of understanding with the transition representative of each eligible candidate by no later than September 1 of an election year. At a minimum, this memorandum would include the conditions of access to employees, facilities, and documents of agencies by transition staff. Presidential transitions aren’t sufficiently planned out in advance of Inauguration Day. Ensuring that each presidential candidate’s transition representative coordinates with the General Services Administration will help with more advance planning for transitions. We’ve seen, particularly by the previous Obama Administrations “DARK STATE” operation to accomplish a hindering demonstration of leaving stay behind elements, to conduct political hinderance activities, to prevent President Trump from accomplishing his administration’s political agenda.

There always be some sort of oversight in transition in the White House! Always! There are thieves and vandals! Ask The Clintons!

Argument opposed

There are already private and public sector efforts to carry out presidential transitions more smoothly. There’s also federal funding and legislation in place to fund and dictate the goals of an effective transition.

To date there has only been one moronic individual who didn't comprehend the transition process. That would be the current resident in our White House.

They were fine for 219 years. Washington transitioned to Jefferson and so on until now. It’s only because 45 is an idiot that there was a problem this time. No, wait, strike that. There was one other transition that caused an issue. When “W” transitioned, he ignored the outgoing administration and then we got 9/11. But other than the last two Republican presidents, no issue. Maybe we should simply elect better presidents?

This bill is a reflection of the general and overwhelming incompetence of our current president. You cannot replace an absence of curiosity coupled with a near complete ignorance of federal governance and fix it with legislation. We’re living through an inherent and permanent risk of a democratic republic.

    This would not be needed if the repugs could elect qualified people instead of failed businessmen trying to escape prosecution.

    There is no reason to require all future presidential candidates to suffer for the ineptitude and arrogance of Trump.

    Half of all Americans are poor or low-income, we’ve had endless war for 18 years - I think as a nation we’ve got much bigger fish to fry than this concern!

    There’s already Private and Public organizations AND Federal Funding. More Republicans wasting time, money and space. Let’s focus on helping our country. Let’s do something about the deficit. Let’s help the poor, the sick, the hungry and I don’t mean the MONEY HUNGRY!

    When you have presidents like GH Bush’s team working with Clinton and Presidents passing letters to each other like GW Bush and President Obama the transition goes smoothly. But when you have dumb ass trump sitting there with his thumb up his ass while President Obama tries to educate stumpy trump acting like he knows it all then he bound to failure that’s why 2 years into his shit hole half the White House positions have been filled, trump is a freaking clown 🤡

    If there are already procedures in place, it doesn’t seem like we need additional structure. Plainly, it’s not possible to make the process idiot- proof.

    It’s important to note. Transition has occurred without a law in the past until this current Administration has decided not to take advantage of the offers by previous administrations. They could have reached out to any Administration but chose not to.

    Only one -TRUMP- has had a problem and that is because he wouldn’t & won’t pay any attention to WHAT HE’S SUPPOSED TO DO!!! He’s bound & determined to MAKE A DICTATORSHIP OUT OF OUR COUNTRY. WHY ELSE WOULD HE MEET ALONE WITH DICTATORS AND DO ALL HE CANTK DESTROY IUR COUNTRY.???? Make a LAW that makes it Mandatory for every candidate for Fed Office show ALL THEIR FINANCIAL PAPERWORK, including THEIR TAXES.

    The Trump Presidential Transition team was a no show at the Obama transition meeting. What good is it if Trump team does not show up. They already knows everything, just ask them!

    I have a better idea - how about we NOT elect game show hosts with the intellect of a soiled diaper, the temperament of a gorilla on a three week meth bender, and a history of real estate and marketing fraud instead?
