Let Obama keep talking, maybe he will unilaterally kill the Dem version of healthcare "reform" uh I mean insurance reform.
There is not a single government run program that works efficiently. The post office is just the latest example. And the service is terrible. Last week I was waiting on a package that required a signature and I received the post office notification that the package had arrived. I decided to go pick up the package and had seen advertised hours for the post office up to 7:00 p.m. Well, when I arrived I noted that the hours were 9:00 to 4:00 M-F and 9:00 to 12:00 on Saturday. How is a working person that also works Saturdays supposed to make it to the post office with those hours???? I'll bet UPS and Fed Ex have better hours. By this time it was Thursday so I went online and requested that my package be delivered on Saturday, I decided ot leave work early so that I would be home to receive the package because it was a valuable item. On Friday the carrier left a written not that they could not leave the package because I had forgot to leave the signature card in the box. I assumed they would try to redeliver on Saturday so I left the signature care Saturday morning. Guess what, I left work early but the package never arrived. I called the post office about 4:00 hoping to catch someone. Well I was lucky and after some begging on my part the person agreed to hand the package to me out the back door after my 15 min drive to the post office.
Another great example of government service and efficiency. If this had been healthcare they would have cut off both my legs and left me to die.
Government run medicare is a mess, social security is going bankrupt, cash for clunkers is being crushed under the load of red tape (and was a stupid idea from the start), the stimulus has not really worked. Can we find a single government program that works???
