When are people going to learn this is what the federal government does. They step in and say we are going to help you and create something that you can not sustain.

Federal government creates the flood control system to protect people and force the Mississippi river to go where they want it to, Then years later nobody can afford to upgrade and maintain it.

Federal government comes in and creates social security then mis manages it until it is headed for insolvency.

Medicare, all is good until the baby boomers get old and on medicare then we have the biggest shortfall of funding or any project in the history of the world.

The post office, passenger rail, everything they touch becomes a financial nightmare.

Surprise surprise not enough money to maintain the interstate system, maybe we never should have let them get highly developed in the middle of big cities in the first place, if you can't afford it you can't afford it.

Obamacare, what on earth made people think healthcare is going to be any different??????

The United States federal excise tax on gasoline is 18.4 cents per gallon and 24.4 cents per gallon for diesel fuel.

Where has all the money gone??
