"Government should be run more like a business" 


To reduce waste, fraud, and corruption? Don't make me laugh, it hurts (especially after the lid got lifted the latest cesspit in mutual funds).

Because corporations are run like democracies? Ever sit through a PowerPoint presentation by top management?

The idea that government should be like a business is pushed by politicized executives. Under Bush, it's become clear what they want: loot, and lots of it.

The idea that government should be run like business—with customers, not citizens—is not just undemocratic, it's anti-democratic.

Don't fall for it.
