The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. It is broke, and even though heavily subsidized, it can't compete with private sector: FedEx and UPS services. The U.S. Postal Service lost over $7 BILLION in one year and requires continuous "bailouts."
Social Security was established in 1935. It is broke. There is nothing in the Social Security Trust Fund except IOUs from the government. It was passed into law as a trust fund, but it is now a ponzi scheme, paying one person with another person's contributions, having already squandered the money that was supposed to be held "in trust". A private lawyer. or a banker, who did this would go to jail.
Fannie Mae is broke. Freddie Mac is broke.
The War on Poverty was started in 1964. $1 trillion of our hard earned money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor". This has done nothing except increase the number of "poor". People now strive to maintain their qualification as "poor" so as to not lose those benefits.
Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. They are both broke; and now our government dares to mention them as models for all US health care.
AMTRAK was established in 1970. They have been continuously bailed out and it continues to run at a loss.
A trillion dollars was committed in the massive political payoff called the Stimulus Bill.
It did not stimulate anything except the increase the size of government, and raised government salaries, while the rest of us suffer from economic hardships. It has yet to create any new private sector jobs.
"Cash for Clunkers" was established in 2009, and it went broke in 2009. 80% of the cars purchased turned out to be produced by foreign companies, and dealers.
So with a perfect 100% failure rate, and a record that proves that each and every "service" shoved down our throats by an over-reaching government turns into disaster, how could any informed American trust our government to run, or even set policies for, America's health care system, which is 7% of our economy?
Back in 1990, the Government seized the Mustang Ranch for tax evasion. The Mustang Ranch was legal brothel in Nevada. As required by law, the Government tried to run it. They failed and it closed. Now, we are trusting the economy of our country, our banking system, our auto industry and our health plans to the same nit-wits who could not break even running a brothel and selling whiskey?!"
"What are we thinking??"
We are told that 10 million more people will be covered, without adding a single new doctor, but by adding 16 thousand new IRS agents. Will those 16 thousand new IRS agents be providing any health care? Meanwhile medical doctors are leaving the profession to escape from Obamacare. Maybe we will need still more IRS agents?
Obamacare was written by a committee, whose chairman says that he does not understand it.
It was passed by a congress that did not read it, but exempted themselves from it.
It was signed by a President who smokes.
Its funding was to be administered by a treasury chief who did not pay his taxes.
We were taxed for it for 4 years before it took effect. These taxes went to the same government which had already bankrupted social security, medicare, the Post Office, Amtrak, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac.
SO WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG WITH A PLAN LIKE THAT???
"The battle for liberty is never won & is never lost.
The battle for liberty always continues.
It is never too late & it is never soon enough, to defend freedom.
No matter how enslaved we are, we always have hope.
No matter how free we are we are never safe.
NOTHING EVER LIMITS THE GOVERNMENT, EXCEPT THE PEOPLE.
Any generation that fails to defend freedom will lose it.
The next generation will have to shed blood to gain it back.
