O'Malley and Obama can't resist fixing what's not broken

Why is it that since the current president has been in office everything that is proposed by his or Gov. Martin O'Malley's office has had to be a major change?

We've had an "overhaul" of the finest health care system in the world. We've had "sweeping" new gun control legislation. The examples of "sweeping," "overhaul," and even "major overhaul" and "sweeping overhaul" go on ad nauseum. What ever happened to tweaking a current law or program? Why does everything that worked well now have to trashed and started over?

I just don't understand.
