An open letter to Congress. I do not know who originated this, but I hope you send something similar, or copy this and send it, to Congress! Don't forget to send to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, too.
To the Congress:
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 new
source: the American taxpayer. (have you seen Acorn's new video's?)
And finally, to set a new record:
"Cash for Clunkers" was established in 2009 and went broke in 2009! It
took 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? Add in the $6 billion spent by the Department of
Energy each year to insure energy independence and you can see why
Americans are skeptical of new Government plans.
20% of our entire economy?
With all due respect,
Are you crazy?
