Some people argue that the government ought to be run like a business. I implore them to consider the implications of this. Any programs that did not bring in a profit would be shut down, so this would mean the end of public libraries, national parks and even emergency services, as we all know these services do not bring in a profit. Next, the government would, like any business, try to maximize their revenue, so this would manifest as the over-taxation of all goods and services. It would try to decrease costs and what is the easiest way to do that? Outsourcing!... and you thought going to the DMV was bad now. Oh and who cares whether or not the customers are represented in the business’ management? Say goodbye to Congress.
