Which is why some of us think the less the government runs, the better. At least when businessmen and private individuals make mistakes, they usually pay for it. Bureaucrats just get passed over for the next promotion.

I forgot the name of the "law" from my public administration class, but there is a principle of management that applies heavily to bureaucracies where people will rise within an organization to the point at which they are incompetent, then that's where they stay.
