DHS was formed under W. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but as

with any bureaucracy, it got too big and powerful. I'm not sure if the Obama approach of trying to put everything under that umbrella is better, or the Bush approach of having a lot of stand-alone agencies. Hypothetically, the Obama approach should decrease bureaucracy, but it appears not to have. The Bush approach tends to create a lot more redundancy but does set a standard of different agencies operating independently which I think is important. They definitely need to move the Secret Service back to Treasury. That was a dumb change.

I don't agree that we could go to just two security agencies, but downsizing and streamlining government overall would be incredibly beneficial. I agree with babybull that there are entire departments in the government that need to go away. Education and Energy foremost among them.
