    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 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.

    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 transferred to "the poor"; it hasn't worked.

    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!

    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
    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? [lolol][lolol][lolol][lolol]

    Maybe each of us has a personal responsibility to let others in on
    this brilliant record before 2010, and then help remove from office
    those who are voting to destroy capitalism and destroy our grand-children's future.

    *I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the**
    government from wasting the labours of the people under the pretence
    of taking care of them.

    -- Thomas Jefferson*

    **Euthanize politicians, NOT seniors!

    I predict the real goal of this dangerous group of radical amateurs in our new government of change, will be discovered to be to ruin our successful capitalistic system into a one world currency they will try to control.
