Mises: Four Agencies to Abolish along with the Dept. of Education

(Before It's News)

Time to sharpen the blade.

(From Mises)

In the wake of the Senate’s confirmation of the appointment of Betsy DeVos, the protests from the left prompted Republican Congressman Thomas Massie to offer them a way to get rid of DeVos: eliminate the Department of Education.

According to Massie, he’d been planning to introduce the bill for more than a year, and the controversy over DeVos appeared to be as good a time as any.

There’s no harm in Massie introducing the bill, of course, although as I’ve noted here, the odds of Republicans offering much help to Massie in passing the bill are pretty low.

But as long as we’re identifying cabinet-level agencies for the chopping block, why stop with the Department of Education?

There are plenty of other Departments which oversee activities that could easily be done by state and local agencies, or which should just be reduced to their former less-exalted positions in the federal ecosystem.

We can think of a couple others too.
