To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature,

It is now official – you are ALL incompetent at running an economy or government:

a. The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 235 years to get it right and it is struggling to survive.
 
b. Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 75 years to get it right and it is nearly broke.

c. Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 72 years to get it right and it is broke.
                               
d. War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 46 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to “the poor” and they are still poor – and their ranks are swelling.
                               
e. Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 45 years to get it right and they are nearly broke.
                               
f. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 40 years to get it right and we had to bail it out.
                               
g. The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 33 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.
                               
h. Wages and benefits paid to the President, Vice President, Senators and Representatives exceed $300 million, not including the cost of staff, travel and perks – and they simply produce a series of budget overruns; While the top executives of Wal Mart only earn about $35 million – and they produce an ever-increasing series of profits.

You have FAILED in every “government service” you have enacted, while overspending our tax dollars.

Perhaps it’s time to remove our heads of government and replace them with Wal Mart.
WAL MART SEEMS TO KNOW HOW TO RUN A BUSINESS…
WHY DON’T YOU GUYS JUST ADMIT IT’S WAY BEYOND YOUR PAY GRADE, AND QUIT?
