Abolish Useless Government

“I have been going up and down this country preaching that Government - Federal and State and local - costs too much. I shall not stop that preaching. As an immediate program of action we must abolish useless offices… We must merge, we must consolidate subdivisions of Government, and, like the private citizen, give up luxuries which we can no longer afford”
          --- Franklin D. Roosevelt 1932 (source)

[Narrator voice: But he didn't. In fact he went on to spend more and create more useless offices of government than any president before him]
