Yes, those are all good points and things that provide value, but could certainly could be handled more effective and cheaply otherwise.

  That is not how you get a business profitable. 


The problem is that the government has little, if any, incentive to be profitable. After many decades, what we're seeing now is a result of that folly. When an organization spends nearly 80% of its budget on compensation, benefits, and retiree health benefits pre-funding it should become pretty obvious there is zero chance of recovery.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

it wasn't even important enough for the Democrat controlled Senate to pass or even to propose a federal budget for the past 4 years.
