The decision makers in Washington appear to have never actually worked as an employee of the Federal government or don’t understand how the Federal bureaucracy actually spends its money or, for some unknown reason, don’t really want to reduce the Federal debt levels.
While once again having to stare in the face of near-imminent collapse unless it again raises its debt ceiling, the U.S. Federal government and its Law Makers appear at a complete loss of how to curtail the U.S. Federal debt – or as a result of mental deficiencies or loyalties to others rather than to the American people, the politicians/lawmakers simply do not really care to curtail the debt. Clearly, by merely revamping how the government spends its funds allocated to government agencies and contractors, the U.S. Federal government could likely save billions of dollars per fiscal year and could likely do so in a “win-win” manner for all. Changing the way the government spends its money/allocated funds would, most likely, significantly decrease Federal deficits which would in turn significantly reduce the Federal debt.
But then again, the lawmakers in Washington appear to be totally ignorant of where the likely majority of government waste actually exists. Such an ignorance as is currently apparent with the lawmakers could be a result of never having worked as a typical government employee – as many of the lawmakers have surely never worked as a regular government employee and appear to only have had the U.S. Federal government work for them.
