See, that’s what happens with a government shutdown, you find out who’s really necessary.
Now see, that’s backwards, I don’t think Congress could function without their staffers.
If you ask me, ALL of the EPA is unnecessary.
I bet it’s going to be more once they try to navigate the exchanges.
What’s worse is that the exchange sites direct people to Medicare and Medicaid, essentially turning many insurance-payers into beneficiaries of the welfare state.
As long as people get what they need, it shouldn’t matter the source it comes from or how it’s paid for.
“Only 6.6% of EPA employees deemed essential.”
This seems a bit sensationalist considering the ENTIRE CDC is considered non-essential.
That’s right, nothing more unessential than tracking the world’s most deadly diseases.
Don’t forget mail service. Disease is nothing compared to me not getting my coupons.
“Africa: Despite high reported growth rates, poverty at the grassroots remains little changed.”
This is the consummate failure of free-market capitalism. Africa is the best place to see how the West’s ideas really work, and more and more we’re seeing that they don’t.
Wealth is only funneled into the hands of those who are already wealthy.
“Congress gets paid during a shutdown; staffers do not.”
Seems unfair since the staffers likely do most of the work.
It’s also unfair when employees get laid off and bosses get bonuses.
Is everything about corporate greed to you?
As long as corporations misuse the trust people place in them, yes.
The same could be said of the government.
I’m sure there’s a lot of reasons why African poverty is not responding to growth or aid.
Mostly likely their leaders.
