Air traffic control; why does the government do this? And do it so badly?

Apparently the FAA has been delaying flights around the country and forcing pilots to make public announcements that the delay is due to the “sequester”. If a tiny cut in their budget at a time when there are fewer commercial flights than there were just a few years ago is going to cause so much trouble, then this is a good indication that the government has no business being in the air traffic control business. They should take their cue from Canada and turn that responsibility over to private industry.
