I can hardly wait for Government Healthcare!

Let’s review some Government run programs!

U.S. Postal System: Government run. After 235 years it's broken and losing billions. According to President Obama the privately run delivery systems like UPS and FedEx are doing just fine!

Social Security: Broken and will be bankrupt in 2017 or sooner.

Fannie Mae: Broken. Full of toxic assets. Required bailout using your tax dollars.

War on Poverty: The longest war in American history. Recap: Spent trillions of tax dollars with no measurable result.

Medicare: Bankrupt and actual costs are 9 times what Government projected.

Medicaid: Bankrupt. State matching funds requirements bankrupting many State budgets. As much as 35% waste, fraud and abuse.

Freddie Mac: Broken and full of toxic assets. Bailout required using taxpayer dollars.

Viet Nam War: U.S. Military was run out of the Country because the war was prosecuted by politicians not Generals.

AMTRAK: Has never made a profit and costs taxpayers billions to continue operation.

VA Medical System: Presently rationing care and basically run with the same mentality as Postal System. Excellent example of a Government run healthcare program!

U.S. Energy Dept: Established in 1970 with directive to reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil. Result: Total failure. The U.S. now imports a higher percentage of its oil requirements from foreign sources.

U.S. Dept of Agriculture: Now employs more government bureaucrats than the number of family farms in America.

War or Drugs: Total Failure. Narco terrorists entering our Southern Border and controlling significant territory in South America. Drug use at all time high in America.

Cash for Clunkers: Bankrupt within weeks. Government failing to reimburse U.S. Auto Dealers on timely basis. $3 billion program administered by clowns and we’ll soon have cash for refrigerators!

U.S. Congress: Out of control spending resulting in a 1.6 Trillion dollar deficit in 2009. Members of Congress now answer to special interests rather than serving their constituents.

Stimulus Package of 2009: 787 Billion of your tax dollars to stimulate economic growth. Result- Record high unemployment. Record high foreclosure rate. Record high bankruptcy filings. Hey... How's that Hope and Change working out for you?

The only government programs, I can remember, that have been successful over the past 70 years have been the prosecution of the 2nd World War… because Generals were in charge of winning… and the JFK challenge of putting a man on the moon within 10 years… again… because it was a collaboration between private industry and the scientific community. NOT Government bureaucrats!

Government is not the answer! Government is the problem! Government is the opposite of efficiency. Government breeds meritocracy. Government produces waste, fraud and abuse! Private industry will produce the most efficient program because of competition. The free market creates efficiency!

Government run Healthcare is NOT about Healthcare... it's about CONTROL over your life by pseudo elitists that think you are too stupid to know what's best for you. They think they know what's best and want to force their thinking on you and your family!

Wake up America! Government run Healthcare… the public option, single payer or whatever the progressives are calling it this week… will be a disaster just like the all the programs listed above!

It’s time for the 2nd American Revolution!
