The real problem is that the government long ago stopped remembering that it served the people. Instead they act and function as if we exist for them. The state of New York has stopped sending out tax refunds. California did this last year. Actually California sent out a sort of IOU. I told my friend who still lives in that dark corner of the earth he should have asked them what kind of interest and late penalty payment would be involved... He actually did, but they hung up on him. It's a legitimate question because you know that while both states default on the people (giving them what is rightfully theirs) and don't pay interest or late penalties, they are at the same time chasing down citizens who "owe the state." AND charging them late penalties and interest, while holding out on those citizens who did pay their taxes.
Is there anyone who can't see this happening with Health Care? Because it has... in Canada, England, France, Greece, Masachusetts, the list goes on.
