You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.
Wouldn't that just scar really bad? And man that's got to itch like crazy. I thought my tat itched when I got it. I can't imagine basically having an enormous open wound on my back. That I willingly had done to me.
