    All you'll ever need to know about the workings of the federal government:

    "The 2011 Government Accountability Office study he commissioned, which examined programs in fiscal year 2009, found an overlapping and duplicative maze of 47 federal jobs programs run by nine agencies. Some were rife with mismanagement, waste, fraud, abuse and corruption."

    Now think of the dozens - hundreds? - of other federal agencies, departments, and whatnot that are also overlapping, duplicating, wasting, blah, blah, blah. Albeit very expensive blah.

    But, hey, nobody said taking care of Julia all her friggin' life was gonna be cheap.

    I have no idea of course how old you are...but one of the most dangerous things about American society today is that almost half of every citizen in this country is not old enough to remember pre-plutocracy/Mommy-state America.
    When I was young....
    Only about 30% of households had 2 income earners, yet there was a larger middle-class % than there is now.
    Education costs (tution, room and board) was about right at 25% of the average household income. In 2011...not quite double the average household income.
    Gasoline was less than $1 per gallon.
    College graduation rate was 20% better than now.
    Fannie Mae was not allowed to purchase private mortgages.
    Us Debt. was $477bn

    And on and on and on
