 @Joshua Wilner/A Writer Writes  @golfnovels Then I'll pose a scenario. There is one entity that spends $100 when there is only $20 in the bank. That entity does it over and over and over again, year after year with no budget (now) and no controls. It has no fiscal responsibility. It is known as the federal government and to some degree, many state governments.

 

Corporate businessmen do understand the bottom line and I don't think that too many of them will continue to operate when expenses excessively exceed revenues. They will trim fat. They will get lean. They will act with fiscal responsibility. If you own your own business you will understand that principle. If you work for someone then it might be harder for you to grasp. It takes a lot of effort to sell a product or service. It just doesn't appear --- like some in government obviously think.

 

I think the scenario that you describe more adequately describes a bigger government that makes people dependent upon them, thus increasing their power base.

It doesn't have anything to do about caring about employees. It has everything to do about who is going to pay for it and being forced to do it by the government. The new "employee" will become an independent contractor for a year. The employer / employee relationship will become a dinosaur. I hate to say it but the "haves" are not going to sit around and have the "have-nots" dictate to them what to do.
