In this particular case, there definitely are.
Government programs universally have a negative ROI. That's the very definition of a government program.
Even if they all didn't - which they do, but let's assume some didn't - there's simply no way to kill a program once it gets implemented. You cannot judge what works and what doesn't because they all stay regardless of success. I have yet to meet one liberal who says any gov't program failed. (Or needs to be cut, outside of Military)
