My biggest concern is that legislation is often proposed and passed that supports some feel-good goal without considering the long tern consequences, whether or not it Is redundant, and generally not part of an overall strategy. Look at the student loan program that has the government underwrite educational loans secured by youngsters without understanding nor counseling regarding long-term commitments being made. Colleges had a huge influx of funds and used that to greatly increase tuitions, further aggravating the issue and causing student debt to skyrocket. Lenders didn't care since the principal was guaranteed and they have the opportunity to collect interest with little risk. A little fore-thought could have minimized these unintended consequences. Meaningless, redundant and misleadingly titled legislation is often promoted and passed to get cred's for politician talking points in upcoming elections or to change some agency rule for their benefactors. No one is trying to stop this bullshit, time-wasting activity. Finally, I have been an advocate for developing a non-partisan strategic vision of who we are, where do we want to be in the future and what are the broad steps needed to get there. This would help stop legislating nitty gritty details of how agencies need to operate and keep the legislation at a higher and strategic level, with nitty gritty detailed oversight by congressional committees or appointed oversight boards. New legislation should be deliberated and 'tested' against our agreed-to long term goals.
