Per Trekky0623 - The federal government activity that is effective, efficient and within budget is that of racking up regulations? In other words, that which the government does well is produce regulations. In terms of shear number of regulations you would be correct. In terms of quality - not so much, and the cost to consumers is stagering. Do we need some regulating of private activity? Of course. However, over 400 new federal regulations have been put in place since Jan 1, 2013!!
I rest my freakin’ case!!
BTW, if car seat A is shown to have been a contributing factor to a child’s death/injury in, let’s say, 20 instances and car seat B in only 3 instances and car seat C in only 1 instance how long do you think it will take for car seat A to revise its design or go out of business? Point - Much/most of our system is self regulating.
What REALLY requires regulating is the size and scope of our government. We, as citizens, can only/best do that at the ballot box. Given the condition of things I would conclude we continue to “soil” ourselves whenever we are within the confines of the voting booth.
