Reform is easy
Every time you squeeze silly putty, you re-form it. Wily politicians who want to massage your wallet and cater to their donor base will introduce "A Bill To Reform Something" and the fifth estate is in rapture.
The presumption should be that every new bill will add some dysfunction and be more costly. Let the burden fall on the promoters to prove otherwise. "Reform" is an empty term in politics.
