Do the Same to Government, Deduct Tax Payment for Government Never Events

Good idea. But remedies should be mutual to be fair. Some government never events for which taxes should be deducted:

1) exploding space shuttles;

2) not plowing a snow covered main street;

3) lawyer interference causing an overwhelming military to get bogged down, generating massive costs;

4) impeachment of a president over lawyer gotcha of misuse of words in a deposition;

5) forcing banks to lend mortgages in neighborhoods with irresponsible lifestyles;

6) failing to pilot test major laws that have unanticipated, reverse consequences;

7) not keeping campaign promises and doing the opposite once elected
