Why I Parted Ways With The Right

re: #296 avanti

I don’t disagree with you, but many have tried, and failed. Just a simple change to allow Medicare allow competition for drugs and equipment could save billions, but neither side can get a bill passed to allow it. Punishing agencies with money left in their budget is another small example. If they have a million left over, then their budget might be reduced by a million, so they spend it on crap.

Or, if an actual cut threatens to come into being, they simply shut down their essential services, to extort the funding back into their budget. Which is why the Park Service will close national monuments for “lack of funding”, but continue to boot cars.
