    It is a constant source of amazement that anyone thinks government can solve problems.

    It seems that every government agency at every level is completely incompetent, with almost daily examples, no matter if Republicans or Democrats are in charge.

    People blamed TRUMP for Covid 19 communication errors while ignoring disastrous decisions at the State level by Cuomo and Newsom and others. And now the roll out of the vaccine shows how incompetent multiple State governments are – with millions of doses having been distributed by the Feds but sitting in cold storage while the logistics are figured out by each State.

    The organized theft of unemployment dollars inside California prisons(!) ran in the billons of dollars in 2020. And no one figured it out?!?!??!?!

    Obamacare’s computer disaster was famous, but did you know it isn’t much better today?

    Truly. I could go on and on. The failed War on Poverty that has failed to lift people out of poverty for decades, and has been shown to keep millions IN poverty.

    And yet people want the government to spend more/do more/control more . . . amazing.

    California is probablly the most poorly ran state and Gavin Newsom is doing his part to run it into the ground.

    Our system of giving states total autonomy in distributing the vaccine as well as the dollars from unemployment provide a great challenge during this pandemic.

    Some sort of response involving the military since they are based trained at logistics at this scale might have made the distribution of the vaccine more efficient. I believe that only one third of the available vaccine has been administered to patients to date in California.

    California’s failure to distribute checks and avoid fraud has been disappointing given the relatively high tax rates in the state. Obviously, the system of distribution of this money is overwhelmed. My guess is that the efficiency is down due to the improper management of stay-at-home employees during this pandemic. I have heard several stories where people who deserve the money are unable to contact anybody to clarify their situation. The money is there, but is distributed to fraudsters rather than people in need.

    The downside of another stimulus bill is that we are going to pour more money into something that California and perhaps other states are unable to manage.
