Five Ft. Three

“A society that puts equality before freedom will get neither. A society that puts freedom before equality will get a high degree of both.” ― Milton Friedman

Timing is everything

I found it rather interesting that the same day the GAO report hits the news that shows the abuse by government workers in their travelling that the president vetoes the bill that would have expanded health care insurance to children. Now I am not saying that had the abuse of travel expenses not happened that we as a national could have afforded the health insurance bill, but what I think this shows is that unaccountable abuses happen in the government all the time, so why in the world do we want them to be the ones expanding these programs, even if those programs have at their heart the interest of helping children?

Our government need not be in the business of insuring Americans when it can’t even keep a handle doing the business it is suppose to do.
