The politicians running Pittsburgh have the city virtually bankrupt and unable to meet looming pension obligations. The politicians running Pennsylvania have the state virtually bankrupt and can't come even come up with a budget on schedule. The politicians running our country have the nation virtually bankrupt, with mind-boggling trillions of dollars of debt that they intend to pass on to future generations.
The reason for these facts is fairly obvious: The great majority of politicians, from local to national, have never run a business bigger than a lemonade stand, have no business sense, no understanding of economics. Yet now they want us to trust them to manage health care, which is not only about 20 percent of our economy, but something our very lives depend on. God help us if we let them get that power!
