Restructure Washington

Let's 'Restructure' Washington While We're at It

Congress has been suitably tough in its advice to Detroit, calling for "a complete restructuring" of our failing auto makers. But how about restructuring Washington? The federal government is a giant Rube Goldberg machine that not only wastes hundreds of billions of dollars each year but also burdens local governments and the private sector with legal requirements that no longer serve the public good. Congress should take its own advice and retool Washington.

That's a great idea but we can't trust them do it themselves. That would never work, it would be like letting bank robbers design banks.
