To say that I am amazed at the lies, would in itself be a lie. What does amaze me though is why anyone in this country would want the government involved in health care in any way.
When Congressman Joe Wilson said what many people were thinking about President Obama’s promise that this plan would not cover illegal aliens, the level of interest overwhelmed the Congressman’s House Website. Follow closely here everyone. The House Website is run by the government and it could not handle the increased traffic caused by one outburst during a Presidential speech to Congress. What happens when the government is running health-care, and some sort of pandemic hits? What happens when millions of people all try to access the government health website? Will it crash too? Do you really trust these folks to run health-care?
Due to exceptionally high traffic, this site is temporarily unavailable.
Please come back shortly.
I made a copy of that, figuring they’d have the problems solved by now… but two days after the event, they still cannot respond to the volume of requests. That is crazy and completely unacceptable.
Beyond that, look at the other “success” stories of government help. Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, The United States Postal Service, Amtrak, Freddie, and Fannie.
My advice is that no matter how much you like your congressman or congresswoman, if they even hint that they want the government to be involved in health-care, vote for someone who will prevent it.
