A reminder to big-government enthusiasts: this is in fact what you ordered.

:gesturing around, vaguely: All of this.  This is what people get when they operate under the assumption that the default answer to the question Should the government get involved in this situation? is Yes.  Remember, the government is not actually alive.  It has no self-awareness, no independent judgement, and certainly no common sense.  So there’s darn little in the way of negative feedback – and it shows. Hoo, boy, does it show.

As I put it a while back:

And I am sure that people are upset that what is on their big-government plate is not what they were shown on the menu. That’s a… real shame; but it shouldn’t really be a surprise.
