This Week in Government Failure

Over at Downsizing Government, we focused on the following issues this week:

  • You wouldn’t know it based on comments from members of Congress, but the U.S. Postal Service has a serious union problem.
  • Food stamp cost and usage are at record highs. And no, it’s not good for the economy.
  • When it comes to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, President Obama has amnesia.
  • The federal government has more food subsidy programs than Tiger Woods had girlfriends.
  • There’s not much difference between Sen. Kent Conrad’s budget proposal and the president’s. Both would continue the massive spending, deficits, and debt that are bankrupting the country.
