U.S. Senate Privatizes Restaurants. What Can We Privatize?

City Council could learn a thing or two from Diane Feinstein.

“It’s cratering,” she said of the restaurant system. “Candidly, I don’t think the taxpayers should be subsidizing something that doesn’t need to be. There are parts of government that can be run like a business and should be run like businesses.”

Just like garbage collection, I say!

    Uncovering the shady shenanigans and the no bid contracts is WORSE than garbage collection. Why does Congress need to even be in the restaurant business? This is ridiculous. Why don’t they walk down the road and become consumers in the free market? Forget taco salad. They can go to TACO HELL!

    Or maybe the US Senate learned a thing or two from Sandy Springs. The good news for the new City of Sandy Springs is they privatized and they are actually running a budget surplus. The bad news is like most elected officials be they Republicans or Democrats, they learn to believe any surplus taxpayer money belongs to the them.

    i think that rather overstates what we have here–it was there cafeteria in the building–lots of businesses and schools and other entities have such places–some they run themselves, some they contract out–i have no problem w/ them deciding to contract out–but i think its more interesting that they are so inept and impotent as to not be able to run it competently themselves…

    Actually, I saw into today’s AJC that Sandy Springs is holding a public hearing to increase the millage rate.

    Give these folks a fancy building and they think they’re the best thing since sliced bread. That’s where I grew up. They can shove their increased millage rate. If they don’t like it they can go live in Millageville.

    I think Macon should privatize their city council. I mean if some of their council members cant even get sworn in and the city is running fine, why shouldnt they?

    So glad YOU weighed IN:

    GAMEFAN & DMZDave:

    Per AJC, Sandy Springs ran a legal ad on page 8, Section A of todays’ edition:

    Sandy Springs will raise taxes 8.5%

    Dunwoody, you had better watch your wallet, because the studies that YOUR budget is based on was done ‘on-the-cheap’ and in record time.

    Dunwoody better dig deep, with $5 gas coming and the budget was based on 2003-2004 expense data.

    These cretins can expect some increased scrutiny. New arrivals. lame brains and profit takers. If you don’t know what SSRC OR GG stands for then you probably weren’t around to understand what a parade down Roswell Road was all about before a football game at Sandy Springs High School.
