For the people
Some program should be in place to give some youth a chance for a better life. It is always nice to save a large number, but the program should not be base on making money or saving money. That is treating the programs like commodities not a social service. Often Social Service program do make a difference and may not show results until the next generation. Governments are not business they have a constituency not customers. Measurements are good and some governmental services should generate revenue.
