To be honest with you, I don't think his handlers let him do much when
he wasn't on vacation...

One reason is that there is no end to it. When was the last time you heard
of an educator tell the public, "we have enough funds, thank you very much."
In Oregon, K-12, the state spends 10k. per child. A classroom of 24 equals
$240,000. The teacher makes 70k tops. So where is the rest going??

Medicare is just as bad. So would be any sort of a gov't health care plan.
