This Week in Government Failure

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

  • The U.S. Postal Service’s “automation refugees.”
  • Earmarks: Just because the federal bureaucracy does an abysmal job of spending taxpayer money, it doesn’t mean lawmakers would do any better.
  • Ground hasn’t been broken for California’s high‐​speed rail system, but it’s already a boondoggle.
  • Hop aboard the Liberty Bus!
  • Al Capone would have loved Medicare.
