ObamaCare? Are you NUTS?

Quoting a letter to Congressman Dean Heller (R-NV 2nd)
(emphasis mine):
The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775 - you have had 234 years to get it right; it is broke.

Social Security was established in 1935 - you have had 74 years to get it right; it is broke.

Fannie Mae was established in 1938 - you have had 71 years to get it right; it is broke.

The "War on Poverty" started in 1964 - you have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor"; it hasn't worked and our entire country is broke.

Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965 - you've had 44 years to get it right; they are broke.

Freddie Mac was established in 1970 - you have had 39 years to get it right; it is broke.

Trillions of dollars were spent in the massive political payoffs called TARP, the "Stimulus", the Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2009... none show any signs of working, although ACORN appears to have found a windfall: the American taxpayer.

And finally, to set a new record:

"Cash for Clunkers" was established in 2009 and went broke in 2009! It took good dependable cars (that were the best some people could afford) and replaced them with high-priced and less-affordable cars, mostly Japanese. A good percentage of the profits went out of the country. And the American taxpayers take the hit for Congress' generosity in burning three billion more of our dollars on failed experiments.

So with a perfect 100% failure rate and a record that proves that "services" you shove down our throats are failing faster and faster, you want Americans to believe you can be trusted with a government-run health care system? 20% of our entire economy?

With all due respect, ARE YOU NUTS?

Cash for clunkers; I agree. But, there has been an agenda for years now to get rid of old cars. Even wreaking yards routinely crush cars. I cannot get parts for my mustang II at a wreaking yard. I believe it is a fine car with a little maintenance and occasional repair. People are being pushed out of the independence of do it yourself repair and maintenance. Cash for clunkers was a trick to put people in debt and to eventually lose more of their freedom, and gave more money to the auto industry, yet without doing any real service to the economy.

I don't think SS was properly maintained or protected. The thieving politicians stole form it. I think a lot of the examples you site are victims of certain agendas or poor management. I am talking out of memory and things that my dad told me over the years, so it is just opinion.

Thomas,

We often hear the argument that if only the state were to better manage this program or that program, then all would be well.

The problem is, governments NEVER manage ANYTHING well and never will. It is a structural problem stemming primarily from a lack of positive incentives combined with a plethora of perverse incentives.

A giant part of the problem is that -- unlike private sector companies -- no matter how badly they screw up, we are still required -- through force of law -- to fund them anyway. So, WHERE is the incentive NOT to screw up?
