      Our money is being squandered.  We tax and spend.  We borrow and spend.  We print and spend.  Now, we're going to let our government take on healthcare, a massive entitlement.  When was the last time our government was fiscially responsible?  Giving more money, for healthcare, to our government is like sinking more money into Enron or perhaps Solyndra.  I'm more responsible with my own money.  I trust my own ability to acquire health insurance more than my government's ability to manage a massive entitlement program with my tax money.

        Uhhh...there was the mid-90s, and before that there was...the...umm...late 30s...? The 1890s...???

        Yeah, it's a pretty rare occurrence.
