Just one more reason for the fedgov to oppose it. If local and state governments start using resources efficiently, people might start to expect the feds to do the same, and that is something they can not abide.
Think of it like the school busing clown show. That was based on the theory that black chillun' are incapable of learning unless there are white chillun' in the classrooms ~ and to avoid angering the whites, and to satisfy the black demand for equality, they bused the black chillun' across town ~ sometimes FOR HOURS and isolated them from their parents, neighbors and other people normally in their lives for most of their waking hours.
That was supposed to be good for black chillun' ~ even though it was destroying the black family in urban areas.
You occasionally encounter Leftwingtards who still believe in that theory but we can readily dismiss their concerns since it's obvious they suffer from some degree of schizophrenia.
It's the same with 'profiling' ~ Janet Napolitano and Kathleen Sibelius do it ~ they don't date men for example.
