Big Government Solution

We know that the main presidential candidates are big government lovers like George W. Bush. A couple, the two Democratic party members, are even worse, as they want government sponsored "universal" health care.

We cannot afford to provide the benefits promised seniors:

The cost of government benefits for seniors soared to a record $27,289 per senior in 2007, according to a USA TODAY analysis.

That's a 24% increase above the inflation rate since 2000. Medical costs are the biggest reason. Last year, for the first time, health care and nursing homes cost the government more than Social Security payments for seniors age 65 and older. The average Social Security benefit per senior in 2007 was $13,184.

We cannot handle the costs of caring for the seniors and Barack and Hillary want the government to handle your health care? Absurd. No; government as solution. (You are a fool if you do not think this will lead to rationing of resources--your health care.)

Let us not forget that this is with the economy doing well. As the economy slows, problems will worsen because government will not shrink.

Barnanke came out today to tell us things are worse than he has previously stated, but that is how the government has been handling the economic situation, just a bit of worse news drawn out. For some reason they think this is better than the truth all at once.

"The outlook for the economy has worsened in recent months, and the downside risks to growth have increased," Bernanke said. "To date, the largest economic effects of the financial turmoil appear to have been on the housing market, which, as you know, has deteriorated significantly over the past two years or so."

In case you thought the worst was over in housing:



Their response: send us some of our money back without cutting any government expenditures.
