What areas of Government could the private sector share in or take over
Let's start with all the things that are NOT Legal Programs under the US Constitution.....
Dept. of Energy; Dept. of Education; Dept. of Housing and Urban Development; Medicare; Medicaid; Social Security; Welfare....
Do you get the idea, or should I go on?
I wasn't thinking about all the area that someone else could take over I was thinking about whar areas I or you could take over form a public private partnership. For example is there anyone who is willing to buy a fire truck and relieve a town from the need to provide fire protection? It seems unlikely that anyone would step up and do this. But are there other areas of government function where someone would actually, for example, create a charity which would then put pressure on the government to give up part or all of this function?
The list would be a lot shorter if we talked about those that shouldn't be spun off.
Why not sell all the interstates? The new owners could turn them into toll roads and do the upkeep and the US government gets to relieve some of our debt. This is essentially what Indiana did to their toll road.
I volunteer for Treasury Secretary and head of the IRS.
It is not like I could possibly screw up more than the last guy who had the job.
Everything outside the police, military and the court system. (and elected office obviously)
None of them. Every thing the private sector does in terms of "Government functions" like prisons and mercenaries..they fuck up..and fuck up bad.
We have mercenaries? Only the IRS has mercenaries.
I ask again --- Is there some function of governenment that anyone would, personally, like to start a charity which has the purpose of taking over, or forming a public private partnership to take over, the named function?
Separate names with a comma.
