Government’s Unintended Consequences

Why are we putting up with this nonsense?  Supposedly, there are more than 10,000 government programs that are artificially stimulating our economy and  these programs are funded with our tax payer dollars.  Why do we continue to allow our Legislators to cram these ridiculous costly programs down our throats?  The unintended consequences are costing us more than the benefits we will ever receive from these absurd programs and each more than likely will never go away. 

Cash for Clunkers?  Really.  Subsidizing the purchase of cars we never intended on buying in the first place.

Subsidies for corn ethanol?  Mm, corn ethanol has now been declared more dangerous to our environment than gasoline.

Minimum Wage?  Is there really still a minimum wage when it is mandated by our government?
