'Inherently governmental' got lost in the shuffle

In regard to "Walker: Redefine 'inherently governmental,'" when the process of hiring contractors took off years ago, it definitely got to the point quickly where agencies were told something like, "Contract out 10 percent of your staff." Then the next year it would be the same thing: "Contract out 10 percent more." It had nothing to do with the work, just the number of staff you could get rid of. Jobs were cannibalized or merged to come up with something to contract out. "Inherently governmental" was lost in the shuffle.
