Government Competence and the Health Care Takeover

The US Postal Service was established in 1775. The government has had 234 years to get it right. It is broke.

Social Security was established in 1935 The government has had 74 years to get it right. It is broke.

Fannie Mae was established in 1938. The government has had 71 years to get it right. It is broke.

The War on Poverty started in 1964. The government has had 45 years to get it right. $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor" and they only want more.

Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. The government has had 44 years to get it right. they are broke.

Freddie Mac was established in 1970. The government has had 39 years to get it right. It is broke.

The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. The government has had 32 years to get it right. It is an abysmal failure.

The government has failed in every unconstitutional "government service" politicians have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars.

Now, the politicians and the do-gooders want Americans to believe the government can competently and ethically run the nation's health care and health insurance business with

• 111 new offices, bureaus, commissions, programs, and bureaucracies
• $729.5 billion in new taxes on small businesses, individuals who cannot afford health coverage, and employers who cannot afford to provide coverage that meets Washington bureaucrats’ standards
• $1.1 trillion in new federal spending according to the Congressional Budget Office
• $150 million in cuts to the Medicare Advantage program
• 114 million people could losing their current coverage and be forced into the government-run plan according to a study by the non-partisan Lewin Group

Are they crazy, or do they just believe all Americans are morons like they are?
