A Force for Good

I love people who don't swallow the Republican talking points that private is always better -- and recognize that there are some things that Government just does better. In that vein, Dave from Hvad posted an excellent blog about the often-criticized Pacheco rule, which forces many privatization attempts in Massachusetts to prove that they'll deliver the same quality at a lower cost. This is a basic premise that should be met for any effort to privatize services that serve the public interest.

You still really think the government can run things honestly? and do better than private business? Wow!

1 word:


There are some things the private sector does better, there are some things the public sector does better, there are some things that work best when the public, private and non-profit sectors are in competition with each other.
