‘Mapping The Swamp’ Report Shows It’s Even Bigger, Costlier Than You Think

This report is absolutely nauseating. To illustrate the stark differences between the private and public sectors, the report states that many government employees are awarded end-of-year bonuses. What ? The federal government is operating at a multi-trillion dollar deficit and growing. In the private sector, only firms who’ve ended the year by beating expectations pass out year-end bonuses. Companies that don’t operate at a profit declare bankruptcy and/or go out of business. This is usually preceded by years of cost-cutting measures including the wholesale closing of retail outlets. The federal, and many state and local governments, should have long ago begun cost-cutting measures, including the wholesale shut-downs of hundreds of agencies and programs. My advice to the taxpayer is: Don’t Hold Your Breath.
