@Terrificli -- Sure, there is a lot of federal bureaucracy and regulations to deal with, but what else should we expect? We demand more and more out of the government and those folks in Congress don't have time to micromanage every little function of the the federal bureaucracy.
Huge programs like Social Security must be supported with a huge bureaucracy. They couldn't function otherwise.
Unless you want to strip down the government so it is little more than a shadowy entity that provides the military, makes sure the roads are maintained and does some other limited things, you will need federal agencies and their regulations to provide those services we expect.
