Cory Gardner Says Shut Down The Department of Transportation
Rep. Cory Gardner (R. Colo) says the Department of Transportation should be shut down and its functions transferred to the states. He said the Federal DOT is a “middleman” in transportation projects that is not needed and serves merely to increase their cost. He’s right.
That’s also why Obamacare is wrong and should be repealed. It inserts the Federal government as a middleman every time someone needs health care. That can’t help but increase the cost. And lower the quality of the care as well.
After dismantling the DOT, there are several other agencies that should go the same way. The Energy Department and the Department of Education are the most obvious. Oh, and TSA, by all means. Get rid of it.
