What would you do if a government department (or a number thereof) consistently underspent their budget?
If you said stop giving them so much money and cut the taxes that resulted in government having so much money in the first place, well done. That’s what I would have said.
If, however, you muttered something along the lines of the money not spent could have been “used to address a range of needs rather than being left to accumulate”, then plz to STFU and stop spending my money kthxbye.
If a government department – the single most wasteful organisation known to man – can’t spend their budget, then clearly that budget is clearly too large. And thusly they shouldn’t be getting that money. If that holds across all departments, then clearly the entire government is getting too much money, and should cut down on it. Which means cutting each and every one of us lucky taxpayers should be getting it back.
But I’ll not be holding my breath for it…
