TaxPayers say, “Lower the Damn Costs!”

May 25, 2010 2 comments

If you work for the government or a company that works for the government, who is your customer?  Is it your boss, or a contracting officer, or some tenured bureaucrat (public or private) that ensures you get paid?

I suggest that if you work for the federal government in any form – military, civilian, contractor, then you work for the American People and your customer is the U.S. Taxpayer.  There are many stewards in the government that can claim to represent the people (elected, appointed, and other government officials).  How do you think they are serving their customers?

What do U.S. Taxpayers get from their government?  Besides security, entitlements, and a range of services, don’t they get to pay for it all?  Is the cost of running the government at record highs?  Who is to blame for that?  The Congress and President for sure… but I think we are overlooking a big part of the problem – government bureaucrats – those tenured pathetic assholes that are stinking up our country.  They hide and the American People can’t see them, but like termites they are burrowed in our government departments eating away at taxpayer dollars.

So, whether you work for the federal government or a company that works for the government, the next time you hear about “the customer” – think about the American People and the U.S. Taxpayer.

Are you meeting THEIR needs?  Do you even know what they are?
