Some more perspective

One of the arguments that the left pushes in their quest to make government control and run healthcare is that evil for profit corporations in the insurance industry screw people over. Of course, knowing how inefficient and ineffective government is at anything it undertakes due to my interactions with it, I am usually flabbergasted that they feel government will do a better job. Seriously, when the “social justice”, “war on poverty” big government can’t do it right and billions are squandered, why would anyone think a big government bureaucracy will do anything else?

The federal government’s largest housing construction program for the poor has squandered hundreds of millions of dollars on stalled or abandoned projects and routinely failed to crack down on derelict developers or the local housing agencies that funded them.

Nationwide, nearly 700 projects awarded $400 million have been idling for years, a Washington Post investigation found. Some have languished for a decade or longer even as much of the country struggles with record-high foreclosures and a dramatic loss of affordable housing.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, which oversees the nation’s housing fund, has largely looked the other way: It does not track the pace of construction and often fails to spot defunct deals, instead trusting local agencies to police projects.

The result is a trail of failed developments in every corner of the country. Fields where apartment complexes were promised are empty and neglected. Houses that were supposed to be renovated are boarded up and crumbling, eyesores in decaying neighborhoods.

That’s the future of healthcare too. Except the numbers will be in the trillions, and the fields won’t be empty, but full of graves of people that were “helped” by government run healthcare. I know how the left will defend this! Its healthcare, so this is real “serial”, and they will definitively do it right because of that, and they will make sure the right people are in charge! Heh! Epic fail.
