Government Programs Are Forever

Proof that nothing is as eternal as a government program, and the prof is Special Olympics. It’s as if Betsy DeVos never heard of the try to defund the Public Broadcasting System or AMTRAK.

I once wrote a column announcing that I was now immortal without building a pyramid, simply by buying a ticket on AMTRAK. What I paid for my ticket was only a fraction of the cost, and the remainder would be carried on the US debt books forever!

I have supported Special Olympics because my donation was requested by a friend, and more than 90% of the Special Olympics budget comes from people like me. There are few organizations that don’t have 10% fat in them.

Not everything that is wonderful should be government funded, but once some politician gets a program on government rolls, even as a demonstration program, it is off to the Races! Forever!
