When you go into a federal facility you know that it will work. It will be clean. More than you'd expect from a state or local government facility in many areas. That's the point: While there are exceptions, for the most part the federal government is more efficient, more effective and more reliable than most state or local governments. Or many corporations, for that matter. (Had to use a bathroom in a gas station, store or restaurant lately?)
There's a lesson here. Think about Obamacare vs. private health insurance. Or Social Security vs. a private 401(k).
