Your Government at Work

It's been a pretty sobering week, or at least it should have been a pretty sobering week, for those who believe that government is both honest and effective and that therefore Obamacare is going to be a boon to the American public.

We have the "voluntary" admission by the IRS that it targeted Tea Party and Patriot organizations, at least in Ohio, before the last election.  Hmmmmm....why Ohio?  Could it have something to do with Ohio's pivotal role in Electoral College calculations?

Once Obamacare is imposed on the country, how long will it be before we discover that some Tea Party members, some Republicans, some people known for favoring lower taxes, were denied critical operations?  Not long.  Obamacare is not there to provide us with health care.  We already have that.  It is there to deny us health care under the guise that we cannot afford it.

Our embassy in Benghazi was in a desperate situation for hours.  What did our "leaders" in Washington do?  Go to bed.  Now we know what happens to the 3:00 AM phone call - it just rings on.

Anybody who has been in a hospital will have experienced the dedication, even the enthusiasm, of the medical staff.  Of course they get paid for what they are doing; we live in a commercial society.  But they are also called to it.  Otherwise we would not see the dedication that characterizes all levels of the profession.  But once government bureaucrats interpose themselves on our health care, what is going to happen?  All of us are going to be in the position of Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods on the top of that CIA annex, waiting for back-up that is never sent.   

So, this week, we have a flash image of Obamacare a couple of years out.  In emergencies, nobody answers the phone.  And when it really counts, you better be a registered Democrat or some "low level" person will decide "by mistake" that you are not worthy.
