"*Everybody* is against waste and ineffectiveness."


I disagree.
The VA managers who directed falsifying of records were - and are -
not against waste and ineffectiveness.
They applaud it.
They award bonuses for it.
And the people who suggest that shoveling MORE money into the
broken system also do the same.

People who argue against measures of effectiveness - against
monitoring performance of - oh say teachers - are not against waste
or ineffectiveness.

people who use the IRS or the FTC or the FCC or the LRB or the
DHS or the Justice Department or any other of the legion of convoluted and conflicting ies and departments for political attack purposes -
they want ineffective and wasteful government.

Politicians who have the gall to claim there is "nothing more
that can be cut" - not only are disingenuous - but want waste and
ineffective government.

If you do not measure performance - and are not willing to dispose of
the criminal, wasteful, inept and ineffective people and programs,
you also want waste - and ineffective government.

Frankly, the Tea Party folk are the only ones who make any sense in
their view of what a bottomless pit and increasingly dysfunctional
beast our government has become over the years.
