One of the problems with government is that we celebrate how much money we're spending and how many reports we're writing, but we don't actually report on what results it all has achieved. Mr. Kmiec has said, “Look, you're telling me this is about building houses. How many houses did you build?” Often, government doesn't like to report on hard results, because so much of the money in these trickle-down government policies just gets gobbled up by bureaucracy and very little actually gets to the people who were its intended beneficiaries.
A great economist once said that a policy should not be judged by its intentions but by its results. We'd like to see those results reported.
