Monopoly's markup

Regarding the news story “LCB may raise prices to offset projected 20 percent income drop” : Of course a government-run business, such as the state-controlled liquor stores, would secretly plan to increase the markup or profit on wine and spirits instead of laying off employees, closing stores and selling off assets like a privately owned business would do when faced with a decline in sales.

When will we, the taxpayers, start to demand that government live within its means and conduct business the right way by voting out all those elected officials who don't do what they were elected to do?
