Government has areas of efficiency
In the health care debates, we hear over and over again, do you know of anything the government has run efficiently? The answer is, yes, I do.
Starting way back with the C.C.C. camps, the WPA projects, federal highway programs, federal parks. I’ve never been bombed – why? Because we have successful military protection.
We have sickness and disease control, there are federal aviation rules protecting our airspace, federal prisons full of bad guys. We’ve had great success with our fishery regulations, with our federal food and drug controls. We built the Panama Canal. How about our World War I victory, the success of World War II and our returning veteran programs? The 52/20 Club, GI Bill, college education.
Ha! How about that? “Strike up the zithers and the tambourines,” the list goes on and on like a summer gnat display. A galaxy of accomplishment. GLEN P. HENDRICK Yuma
