  •  Heck, Florida just elected Rick Scott as governor (1+ / 0-)

    Rick Scott is a criminal.  Scott was the President of Columbia/HCA when it was found guilty of the largest Medicare fraud ever.  Rick Scott personally took the fifth amendment 75 times during testimony and got off scott free!  Now the little old grey haired ladies on Medicare just voted him in as Governor of Florida.  They did NOT care that his company robbed them of the greatest program serving the elderly in the country.  They reflexively voted R on the ballot.  Scott has pledged to put state government on its ear and I guarantee the legislature will be helping him.

    This meme that government employees are the enemy is so wrong.  I had to deal with it as a local govt. employee too.  At the local level it is easier to dispel that myth because we had direct contact with the public.  So usually when people saw how hard we worked and how much we cared about public service, they relized how much they got for their taxes.  But it persists because it is popular for politicians to jump on government employees.

    The United States is not just losing its capacity to do great things. It's losing its soul.--Bob Herbert
