Converting govt agencies to non-profitsSubmitted by cnnrocks on Mon, 01/16/2012 - 11:07
Too often people propose eliminating govt agencies without thinking of the people aspect. Congress won't cut agencies if it means losing jobs in their districts. The federal govt is in effect one big jobs program that no one will cut especially in a down economy.
We need an alternative that will allow the govt to be cut without cutting jobs.
One way to do this would be to have a multi-year transition of gov entities to self sustaining non profits with their own funding sources. This would allow the cut in govt without the extreme cut in jobs - thoughts?
