Should the US gov't privatize some popular programs to drop debt & become more efficient?
Eliminate programs to lower debt. Get the government out of our lives.
Even though some bottom-line numbers may look improved the week after acquisition, costs will skyrocket.
First, gov't employees make almost double the national average. And, their retirement (better than the pvt sector) can never be changed- even if the business bankrupts.
Worst of all, privatization is really just a cog in the process toward communism here in the U.S. (If you think that is a joke, you must have missed recent laws requiring a min. 1 communist teacher in every school, and the unelected "czars" in the gov who pass enforceable laws... without any check by voters or elected officials).
Further, one of the rules of the secret society types (Satanists, really) is that they privatize whatever makes money, and nationalize whatever LOSES money.
If the gov privatizes anything that has a net gain, cash flow decreases. They can't privatize anything that is not making money- who would buy it?
Coming from a country which tried it I can tell you it doesn't work at all, we just finished buying them all back at twice the price they were sold at and the private ownership produced terrible results.
Oh no I am agreeing with mad man above
Privatization is actually the opposite of communism which aims to make all private industries public.
By no means should gov't drop social programs because social programs are for the people; privitizing would lead to greed by the contractors. Private businesses are in it to max the profits at the cost of the people.
Too bad we all can't direct vote programs - get rid of Homeland Security & TSA - such little improvement - so much money wasted. Wasn't the HSA the one with 'Fast & Furious' fiasco? ( More like dumb & dumber)
Also we don't need to study the sex lives of spotted owls who are dumber that a box of rocks and that's why they are going extinct.
Get rid of the F-35 - who the hell are we gong to fight with that? US spends more money on fancy tech stuff than all other countries combined.
Get rid of corporate welfare paid by the little guys such as bank bailouts and big oil subsidies. Let Rx from Europe be imported so that medicines are cheaper with a free market instead of a monopoly.
Quit giving money to Saudi Arabia - we give 'em enough $$ via oil already.
Have free elections instead of a bunch of guys with millions of $$$ to run for president. Maybe get something better than this poor choice of 2012
