Excellent follow-up questions!
We must all remember that the questions and expected (allowed) responses are phrased such that they reinforce the notion that the bureaucracy funding the program can demonstrate a compelling and continuing need for more funding.
After all, the bureaucrats need the jobs and the GS promotions!
E.g., increasing numbers of hungry folks (particularly children) inevitably creates more “programs” and more food welfare warriors must be hired and promoted.
The bureaucrats really don’t give a sh!t about the people receiving whatever government alms are being passed out.
