Like the US Post Office. They make "cuts" by eliminating hours?? Seriously?? The USPS doesn't make money unless they're conducting business! Why not cut out some of the multitude of HOLIDAYS!! The govt does anything but make meaningful, wise cuts.
It's like the lesson I learned in business class. If the govt needs to choose between cutting (a) Funding for hungry kids (b) funding for Benedict Arnold statues, which do they cut? Simple, they choose (a) because the public will demand reinstatement. If they choose (b), the public will see the waste and will not fight to get it back!
