As the Gov I can hire staff, pay them, put them on the benefits rolls etc and provide office space for them plus phone lines & computers
I can have a Company called Reserve America PAY ME to take over the whole thing and I not only get $$$ income, but I save all the other costs!
What astonishes me is that the Gov't still issues drivers licenses, still admins toll bridges & roads still does so many of the tings that gov'ts do, instead of making $$ on them, thereby being in a position to reduce taxes.
Wisconsin charges $17.00 for a camp site .Reserve America charges $8.00 for reserving the camp site . Wisconsin furnishes the park , bathrooms, showers, toilets, drinking water. a dump station, electricity, park rangers, activities for kids , a swimming beach , pavilions fire rings , picnic tables , picnic area, jobs for it's citizens etc etc. Reserve America furnishes a website where I can self reserve a campsite. Which one do you think is making money , it ain't the Wisconsin park system
