Here is an excerpt from an article that I came across @http://www.jaxobserver.com/2009/06/12/government-cant-even-run-a-brothel/
But here’s the clincher. In my adopted home state of Nevada, prostitution is legal (and always profitable). It is impossible to lose money in the world’s oldest profession. The most profitable brothel ever was the infamous Mustang Ranch. The owner earned so many tens of millions of dollars, that he grew fabulously wealthy. But he “forgot” to pay his taxes. He was indicted for tax evasion, escaped to Brazil, and is still today a fugitive from justice. The U.S. government took over the Mustang Ranch. The most successful and profitable brothel in America went bankrupt in one year under government management. That ladies and gentleman, no matter how you feel about brothels, tells you all you need to know about the ability of government to run a business.

"Leave it to the government to screw up something that easy. " LOL!
And by screwing it up, they lost millions in potential tax revenue! No government plan has ever run under budget, they are usually over budget and requesting more funds. There is no incentive to run a government project efficiently.
