Probably. Cronyism is an issue everywhere.Perhaps its inherent crappiness had something to do with one of Michelle's college friends being hired?
Sure they are, they are driving up that debt every day!There's a difference. Businesses have an incentive to be as efficient as possible. If they don't work right, they either get a easy job screwing up for the government, or they go out of business because nobody wants to buy their crappy products. With a government, there's no competition. You can be as crappy as you want, because people are just going to keep voting in the same imbeciles, failures, and scumbags. Again. And again. And again.
I guarantee you, there is not a single ****ing business larger than one building that doesn't use a computer, let alone something the size of our government. Oh wait, that's right. There isn't a business in the world that is as big as our government. Because the government is too damn big! Corrupt businesses like the bankers responsible for our economic crisis got away with what they did because they're in bed with our politicians. Meanwhile, the US is 17 trillion dollars in debt, and nobody in Washington is doing anything about it!
You sound like a super intellegent person, you might want to actually start learning more about monetary policy, you will probably find it fascinating. Not just what tea party types believe, but also check out stuff like Keynsian economics, and MMT, and the dozens of other related issues. Ever consider majoring in economics in college?
So you think that an outdated computer system is why that happened? That's news to me. What a simple think to fix.
And as for the VA, usually, businesses with outdated software aren't responsible for veterans dying on a waiting list to get a doctor to see why they feel sick. usually, businesses with outdated software don't have the job of filing the claims of millions of men and women who put their lives on the line so you didn't have to. And usually, there's a business with up to date software around to take the position of a business that doesn't. But that's not how government works.
They're mutually exclusive.
The road to Hell and the road to Jahannam is the same damn road.
