This Week in Government Failure

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

  • Downsizing Government was featured on C-SPAN.
  • Unfortunately, because government has come to dominate road construction, most citizens probably don’t stop to consider that the private sector can provide superior alternatives.
  • Evidence that higher education subsidies are counterproductive handouts.
  • The omnibus abomination makes it easy to understand why Congress's approval rating is at a new low.
  • The United States is #1!  We now have the highest corporate tax rate among the 34 wealthy nations of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
