From an idealistic standpoint, I would agree that efficiency is key. However, it has been proven that "efficient government programs" is an oxymoron for our large and culturally diverse county. The only answer is a smaller federal government focused on what it does best and greater economic freedom. This country prospered on self-reliance. We have lost that skill and with it our ability to protect life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
My reading comprehension score from grade school competency tests disagrees with you Mr. scientists. Though come to think of it, I don't remember what those stories were about. Dear god, I learned nothing in school because books are too easy to read!
