Among those sporting lefty-long-snouts, to warn against repeal of health-care reform, HHS Secretary Sebelius actually stated that our health-care outcomes (quote): "look like we're in a developing country."  Assume she'll head overseas for her next check-up.  Then, Ag Secretary Vilsack declared  the food-stamp program is actually a form of "economic stimulus." Adding similar logic to that stunner, putting all Americans on food stamps would then restore the economy to greatness. Our country would soon cease to exist, but we'd go out well-fed. But let's stay as positive as Democratic Party Chairwoman, Representative Debbie Schultz, who recently proclaimed (quote): "Anyone can see the economy's improving."  Yes, Mrs. Schultz, that's probably why an additional 400-thousand Americans, weekly, register for unemployment assistance.  But then again, Mother Government exists only to ease our burdens, the view of White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett, saying that (quote): "The point of government is to give people a livelihood."  Knowing the Fed's top responsibility is to provide citizens with all their needs, liberates us from that old "provide for the common defense" nonsense in our dead-sea-scroll-of-a Constitution. 

And, we needn't worry about the status of capitalist-based employment.  In the reassuring words of Nevada Senator Harry Reid (quote):  "It's very clear that private sector jobs are doing just fine."  Side-stepping all reality, while his own state has over 13% unemployment.  The soviet-style control and dole that left-wingers seek, brings to mind the sage and timeless admonition of former British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher.  "The problem with socialism," she reminds us, "is that eventually you run out of other people's money."  Ever find yourself missing truth and common sense?
