clear-bankWe all know that the federal government, whether run by Republicans or Democrats, spends and spends and then spends some more. Government has no incentive to shrink because for every worker, from the president on down, the money spent is other people’s money.

In a corporation, profit is an incentive towards efficiency, but not so in government. Moreover, in a corporation, you have the shareholders breathing down your neck to make sure you’re doing what you can to maximize profit.

The government has shareholders, too – they’re called taxpayers. The government, however, has always hidden the books, with its spending details so vast, complicated, and impenetrable that nobody could tell what was going on. That changed in 2006, however, when Sen. Tom Coburn (R., Okla.) sponsored the “Google Your Government Act.” This law posted on line every single penny the federal government spent, starting in 2000.
