This is a key point, why is it we expect the government to do all the
work/payout of the tasks listed below?  It *shouldn't* do that, that's
not the job of the government.

Yes, he has, but the fact is he is the last person who really should do
anything about it.  *IF* we believe that the government should put it's
hands into things and mess this up (as it has been) then the legislature
 should be doing something about it.  This last century has shown an
increasing belief that the office of the president should be enacting
'his' policy, when he should be just enacting the policies of the
legislative branch.

Point where you will for blame, they're all guilty.
