What has your government done for you lately? The people in D.C. and state government are more concerned with keeping themselves in office rather than serving the people who elected them.
Such as this health care reform bill. Many many people have said gov't run health care is a bad thing but because the democrats came up with it, and we have a democrat run congress and president, we'll probably get it shoved down our throats anyway.
I mention the fire dept only because it seems every election there is another bill that scare tactics are used, saying that if we dont pass that bill to raise taxes, the gov't will be forced to cut back on police and fire services. You hardly ever see a bill that cuts back on congress's paychecks and special perks.
Speaking of congress's special perks, if the health care proposal they are voting on is so good for the rest of us, why does congress have its own special health care only for them?
And schools are nothing more than liberal-run camps where they teach our kids to be good little citizens that dont question authority (unless its a Republican president).
The bottom line is, I would much rather see congress working on fixing our existing Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security, rather than creating yet another gov't office that will just suck up our tax money thru inefficiencies like the rest of them do.
