It’s an old saying that if government ran something (such as a casino or the racetrack), it would lose money. American economist John Rutledge said on Fox News on May 27, 2006:
“Congress is the only whore house in America that loses money on a daily basis.”
“Congress is the only whorehouse in America that loses money” was repeated by Rutledge on other occasions and has also been used by others.

In Focus: Congress or Corporate America: Which Is More Corrupt?
John Rutledge, Forbes contributor: Congress is the only whore house in America that loses money on a daily basis. When something goes wrong in the corporate suite it’s because there is a problem with governance. There’s no adult home in the chairman’s chair. But Congress does this stuff every day. The real test is, would you let your kids go spend a summer at a congressman’s house? I wouldn’t.

PS: This is not a knock on Democratic politicians. They are still amateurs in the abuse department compared with the Rebublican leaders they ousted. It’s a knock on Congress, the only whorehouse in America that loses money.
