I just read this https://www.cnbc.com/2017/08/21/exclusive-secret-service-out-of-money-to-pay-agents-because-of-trumps-frequent-travel-large-family.html
and as much as I despise trump. It always makes me angry when any organization (nonprofits excluded) whether big business or government refuses to pay for the work their employees do, its one of the many reasons I'm very pro union.
The fact is that if we aren't goijg to pay our workers then we shouldn't expect them to protect the president

Link doesn't work but if I get the gist of your question - No the secret service agents should not be expected to be out of pocket - The Trump family should curb travel, reduce protection or contribute towards cost - The idea towards curbing public service expenditure well I think they should priortise and stick to budget - Overtime needed to get pensions out yes definitely, protect and fly the Trumps to one of their resorts every weekend no there is adequate cover in the White House.2THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
The reason there's a cap is that some agencies have historically kept themselves understaffed and used highly paid overtime as a perk.
By calling it they are trying to say "either hire more people to pay at a regular rate or scale back what you're doing".0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
