I would estimate half of governmental groups, and I'm including ALL federal governmental entities, could be either outright eliminated or cut to a minimum.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
Given the two simplistic choices, I'll go with less government. I can quantify that. I can't quantify better government.

"It is only when men contemplate the greatness of God that they can come to realize their own inadequacy." Jean Calvin
Government is always first and last an instrument of force which means violence. The less the better. Sometimes it is necessary and justified such as select wars ( but not all wars ).
The more it grows the more force and violence is spread wo others within and outside the borders of the nation being governed.
People solve many problems although some cannot be solved. Usually when left to their own devices people will solve their problem or cooperate with others to find a solution.
Government merely shifts problems from one person to another and solves nothing.
