They have about 10 or so windows and only 3 people working the rest are in the back chatting it up or acting like they got the superior position, and think they don't or shouldn't have to help the 3 workers.

Typical Govt ran agency.The employees believe that they are over worked and under paid. If this was a privately owned business it would have went bankrupt yrs ago,but since our govt forces us to comply with their regulations,we are forced to take what they give us,all the while paying their salaries.

Maybe if you vote for Obama again he will produce all of the golden eggs he promised the first time around.

Regardless of the outcome, the American people will be getting exactly what we deserve.

Just another example of something that our government fails to manage. Our government cannot properly operate an education system, postal service or social security,....yet half of Americans are lining up asking the government to run their healthcare. Frightening.

Welfare reform is an issue that neither candidates have the gonads to address ,I personally think that the welfare/unemployment program is responsible for over 50% of our problems.

Not quite,..EVERY government program has abuse and waste,...from Welfare to Social Security to the Department of Defense. The problem is not one political party or the other,...the problem is all of them. They should all be fired,..EVERY government agency should be audited and our budget should be balanced.

Quick question: If you think that waiting all day at the MVD is bad how are you going to be feeling when you wait all day at the E.R.? If you think for one second that all of the government red tape coming with the healthcare bill is not going to screw things up worse than they are you are ignorant.
