Government fails at managing everything

This is concerning President Barack Obama, the community organizer and chief.

I hope his attempt to takeover our healthcare has at least slapped his voters out of their coma.

Why on earth should we trust a social worker and a mob of Chicago tax cheats with running our healthcare? Spending like drunken sailors, they have already managed to double the deficit in just six months to 1.8 trillion.

This same government ration-care in Canada and Europe deprives the elderly of care to help fund the program.

Take a look at government-run Social Security. It’s broke. Medicare is broke, as is Medicaid. The U.S. Postal Service has never shown a profit from day one. Last week it announced a $7 billion loss for this year. It’s broke; The V.A. Hospital is in disarray and broke.

These people couldn’t manage a lemonade stand if lemons were free.

Maybe it’s because they’ve never had a real job or they have no concept of what it’s like to actually have to work to survive.

At your expense, they’ll all be jetting off on vacation this month back to their home states, and while they’re there, they may hold some town hall meetings.

Make plans to be there if you’re displeased with this government takeover.

Also you can call the congressional switchboard at (202) 224-3121 to obtain the phone number of your Congressmen. Call now and register your complaint. It’s easy, it takes less then a minute.

Together, we can stop this destruction of the best healthcare system in the world.
