Vainglorious Bastard

CNN Report

It seems that the president of the US is unhappy with people opposing his healthcare plan. Have any of you READ WHAT THE PLAN WILL DO? It's a staggering change - designed to wipe out the healthcare infrastructure in the US. No, I'm not exaggerating.

The President's plan calls for a system which will eliminate private health care insurance within a few years. We'll all be going to government clinics.

Are any of you veterans? Have any of you visited VA Hospitals and received VA treatment? I heard it improved under the Bush Administration but historically they were BUTCHER SHOPS. Government health care. Well stand by sports fans because if our vainglorious leader and messiah gets his way, things for all of us will be going the way of the Veteran's Administration.

  1. I don't want a bureaucrat in Washington deciding what sort of care I need.
  2. The government bankrupted Social Security - Do you think it will be any different with health care?
  3. Once destroyed, the health care infrastructure will take a generation to repair.

Good Government

The US Federal Government has millions of programs.

Is there any situation where it competes with private industry where the government does more/better/cheaper than private industry?

Is there any situation YOU are aware of where you get better, more personalized service from the Federal Government than you do from a private business.

I'm not saying that we should privatize the army or navy. There are things the government ought to manage for the sake of us all. The Founding Fathers understood this as well or better than any of us and they decided that LESS GOVERNMENT IS BETTER GOVERNMENT.
