Why do we need a bureaucracy?

In a time of fiscal restraint, politicians’ campaign on getting rid of “bureaucrats” who make government more inefficient and cost taxpayers more money. However, is there a value to having public servants? What does a bureaucracy do? After reading Chapter 14, name some reasons why a bureaucracy is detrimental to our political system and some reasons why a bureaucracy is a functional necessity to our political system. Please bring in information from your text to support your answer. In addition, choose one federal or state agency in our government’s bureaucracy and describe its purpose.
