Government spending and waste, and future budgets

This week has seen numerous articles highlighting problems with wasteful and excessive government expenditure.

The cumulative impact of this extraordinarily excessive spending, waste of taxpayer resources, and pork-barrel politics is sickening.  In a recent video report, Prof. Antony Davies called for a 're-design of government', arguing that only if we determine what government's role should be can we assess where and how our tax dollars should be spent.

I think Prof. Davies has it right.  One way or another, we've got to rein in the tax-and-spend monstrosity that our current model of government has become.
