Yes Tolik, it does seem like a heads they win tails we lose situation. There are too many entrenched interests to fix the problems easily, if at all. Every dime the govt. spends has someone advocating for it as being vital, and as we know, politicians can’t prioritize. Remember all the agonizing and rhetoric the last time they did some cuts which amounted to about 1% of spending. If they can’t agree on the top 99% of priorities, they truly are incapable of fixing the problem.
