If I had a buck for every time a government employee told me that I
could fund the government single-handedly out of my petty cash.

It's a programmed response, and it is almost always not true. That
is, it is not true in the sense that the government *could* do the job,
they just prefer to spend their resources on other matters. They don't
need additional funding to fix the site; they just need a supervisor
who decides it should be done.
