Government waste is everywhere
A relative of mine used to work at the office down at the pen.
For quite a few years - every year at budget time - they would rush out to spend whatever money was left in order to get the same amount for the upcoming year.
If not, their budget would be cut back.
They purchased microwaves, electric kettles, electric frying pans, clocks, radios, anything that they could get to use up the budget money. And this went on year after year. Now that was just one government office. Multiply that by all the other government offices and you will come up with a fairly large monetary amount when you think about it.
Not to mention the sick day abuse.
Now also take into account the massive waste with big government funded projects and the sick day abuse, along with over-inflated costs, because it is being paid by the government with taxpayer’s money.
So, if you started to go through all the abuse and waste, you probably wouldn’t need to tax the people to death ... and perform all these fee increases and cutbacks - needless spending, no accountability, pass the buck, not my department, etc, etc.
We need a government that will put a stop to all this and start to look after the taxpayers - who by the way are the employer - the government politicians are just employees.
But when they get in power they act like they are the employer and the taxpayers are employees who have to put up with what the politicians dish out.
