I'm looking for a list of government-run FUBARS in recent times and a brief , one sentence explanation of how it's a boondoggle.

what came to mind was :

AMTRAK - has never made money in a fiscal year ,ever. USPS- expecting a $70 billion deficit this year. MEDICAID MEDICARE SoSh Security

(Excerpt) Read more at freerepublic.com ...


TOPICS: Chit/Chat; Miscellaneous
KEYWORDS: conspiracy; meeting; mob; townhall; unruly; vanity
if it can't be asked in 30 seconds or less, I'll probably not use it.

How can you propose to offer and pay for national healthcare for everyone when you cannot even offer VA healthcare to every veteran?

How can you propose Cap and Trade to raise the price of energy and reduce its use ... and tell us making healthcare free for everyone will reduce govt costs?

Calif & Michigan. Fannie Mac and Freddie Mac which are quasi govt companies.

I would also watch some of the videos on You Tube of the other TownHalls.

Will you and your family be on the same plan as me and mine?

If not, why not?

I would ask why the Government Insurance Option appears to be structured like a crab trap? One you get in, you can not get out.

Ask them what “dystonia, Blepharospasm,Meniere’s disease” and any other diseases you can think of. When they can not answer, ask them why they are getting involved in “health care” if they know nothing about these diseases.

They don’t pay their taxes, balance a budget and run inefficient programs...what makes them think they can run the health of the entire USA.

Man, this all sounds ‘planned’. Are you gonna have on good clothes? Real Americans, don't dress up nor ask questions at town halls. What type mask are ya gonna wear? Who is behind your actions? AFLAC? Rush?

Your actions doesn’t look spontaneous and patriotic at all.

“Do you not realize how DANGEROUS it is, to allow the government uncontrolled DIRECT access to people’s bank accounts?”

“If this bill is so good, why does Congress and the unions get to opt out of it?”

“What happens to all of those 401K retirement funds that people are counting on when the TRILLIONS of dollars invested with health care companies and insurance companies suddenly goes poof? Is it your intention to destroy the private wealth of the citizens of this nation?”

“Why is their such a rush to put the whole thing into place now? Why not have a test run of government employees and Congress first BEFORE you cram it down our throats?”

“Tell me, what is to keep Congress from using this plan to balance the Social Security and Medicare programs that so far have been failures as far as funding and economics, by denying care to the elderly.”

“Why should some unelected bureaucrat, the same people who cant run the Dept of Motor Vehicles, balance the budget, or even run a single program like cash for clunkers, be allowed to interfere with my health care and my medical decisions?”

I have more ... just ran out of time.

ask them where they will come up with doctors to treat 50 million people.
Since currently health care workers are in demand, but supply is already low with 203 million people getting help, how will they add 1/5 of the population and still allow access.

How is this different from canada? They want to model after canada, but canada is now moving to private insurance because national doesnt work.

where are they gonna get the money?

They are cutting back medicaid in 6 states, want to cut back medicare by 500 billion? what about the people that are dependent on these services now that are not being funded.

take your pick.

If you want poignant, ask them what the cap will be on the cost of your beloved granny’s end of life care. But when you enter and sign up, say you want to ask about the hospice benefit.

My congressman, Mike Ross one of the blue dogs, is too chicken sh%t to have a Town Hall Meeting. He and another Chicken Sh%t congressman will have a interview on TV where they will be given the questions before the interview.

Dead People Being Sent Stimulus Checks

Friday, May 15, 2009

The Social Security Administration admits that of the 52 million $250 checks it sent as part of the Stimulus Program intended for people receiving Social Security, an estimated 8,000-10,000 checks were sent to DEAD PEOPLE.

Some of the people have been dead for 30 to 40 years or more and some checks were sent to dead people who were never even part of the Social Security system.

The Social Security Administration has been in business since 1935 so it's not as if mailing checks to live recipients is something new to them.

Ask why the majority of Americans who are happy with their health care have to be punished to provide health care for illegals.

Judging from today’s town hall in Indiana with Obama, you’re not going to be allowed in without your official ACORN id card.

“House Committee Rejects Closing Health Coverage Loophole for Illegal Aliens”

http://www.fairus.org/site/News2/1929724780?page=NewsArticle&id=21085&security=1601&news_iv_ctrl=1012

Ask them to justify giving free medical under the plan to an estimated 12 to 20 million illegal aliens.
And ask why the illegals will not be subject to the same penalties and fines as citizens who are not incompliance with various plan requirements.

“Health care reform could cut Medicare, hurt Oregon”

http://www.oregonlive.com/politics/index.ssf/2009/07/health_care_reform_could_cut_m.html

“The health care bill written by House Democrats calls for $500 billion in Medicare cuts over 10 years to help offset the enormous cost of providing care to 45 million uninsured Americans. The Senate is also likely to slice deeply into Medicare to pay for its proposal.

Yet a devastating assessment Thursday by Congress’ independent budget office concluded that those cuts aren’t deep enough. Another $116 billion in Medicare reductions are needed to pay for expanded coverage, the Congressional Budget Office said.”

I was watching it live on Fox a couple of hours ago. Every time Obama said we need this healthcare plan NOW the crowd erupted in cheers. They did the same when he said that the same people who are "manufacturing" opposition to his plan are the ones who caused the "mess" in the first place.

Why is liberty so offensive that it needs to be “reformed” out of existence?

Most Libtards I talk with actually claim that the NYT and all the media is biased toward the conservative side of things. There's no arguing with them.
