Just Thought I’d Share This

This just showed up in my in-box, and it’s full of great facts and links, so I’m sharing it here:


The U.S. Post Service was established in 1775 – they’ve had 234 years to get it right – it is broke, and even though heavily subsidized, it still can’t compete with private sector FedEx and UPS services.

Social Security was established in 1935 – they’ve had 74 years to get it right – it is broke.

Fannie Mae was established in 1938 – they’ve had 71 years to get it right – it is broke.  Freddie Mac was established in 1970 – they’ve had 39 years to get it right – it is broke.

Together Fannie and Freddie have now led the entire world into the worst economic collapse in 80 years.  http://www.newstatesman.com/society/2008/07/housing-market-fannie-freddie

The War on Poverty was started in 1964 – they’ve had 45 years to get it right – $1 trillion of our hard earned money is confiscated each year and confiscated and transferred to “the poor” – it hasn’t worked. (John 12:8 dummies) http://www.monstersandcritics.com/news/usa/news/article_1500441.php/US-poverty-rate-hits-11-year-high

Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965 – they’ve had 44 years to get it right – 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’ve had 39 years to get it right – last year they bailed it out as it continues to run at a loss!  http://beyondbailouts.org/?p=1139

This year, a trillion dollars was committed in the massive political payoff called the Stimulus Bill of 2009. It shows NO sign of working.  It’s been used to increase the size of governments across America, and raise government salaries while the rest of us suffer from economic hardships.  It has yet to create a single new private sector job.  Our national debt projections (approaching $10 trillion) have increased a staggering 400% in the last six months.

“Cash for Clunkers” was established in 2009 and went broke in 2009 – after 80% of the cars purchased turned out to be produced by foreign companies and dealers nationwide are buried under bureaucratic paperwork demanded by a government that is not yet paying them what was promised.

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 – –  17% of our  economy?

Maybe each of us has a personal responsibility to let others in on this brilliant record before 2010, and then help fire (give ‘em the pink slip) those who are voting to destroy capitalism and destroy our grandchildren’s future.

So let me get this straight. We’re going to have a health care plan:

  • written by a committee whose head says he doesn’t understand it…
  • passed by a Congress that hasn’t read it but exempts themselves from it…
  • signed by a president that also hasn’t read it and who smokes…
  • with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes…
  • overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and…
  • financed by a country that’s nearly broke.

What could possibly go wrong?
