Our politicians care more about votes than where the American goes. US became a more welfare country and will eventually lost its competency.

In Response to Re: obama = fail heres why:
Our politicians care more about votes than where the American goes. US became a more welfare country and will eventually lost its competency. We have one government job for every two private jobs. Government job salary is 30% higher than private sector, and benefit is 75% better. I can only advise my kids to find a government job.

it will not last for ever.
but frankly I'd rather have the usa get bankrupt because of big government than because of military involvement all over the world...
but with either Democrats or Republicans it will get bankrupt in few more years.
