This is a policy that was tried in the past and didn't work, so why try it again. It would only serve to create busy work for bureaucrats who should be implementing the programs, rather than writing reports justifying the existence of said programs. The current problem with the USA's government is that politicians are willing to put ideology before policy, which disincentivizes change while promoting the status quo. Both parties are guilty of such actions, however one party has made it clear that the Federal Government should barely exist, so why would anyone want to change anything. Looking at governments around the world, it is clear that government can be as efficient and dynamic as the private sector (and even more so when it comes to public goods like healthcare, education, and safety), therfore we should look at why other countries are succeeding where we fall short. In order to remain the greatest country in the world, we need to be willing to admit and accept our faults, both past and present, otherwise we are nothing but a fraudulent poser. This seems like a good place to start.
