65. "The gov't is incompetent, so less $$$ for them this year"...
One of the most common, die-hard myths is the idea of "effectiveness" in government. For example, X program is not meeting X benchmarks, so we will assign less funds than the previous fiscal year, and if they don't "improve", then we'll give them less money. Not only has this being going for years - think education departments and No Child Left Behind - but the programs were ill-funded in the first place. These folks literally sabotaged the system, and what is worse is regular folks who spout the same nonsense as the official explanation as to why government structures are in such decadence.
