Post-election snark from comedian Jon Lovitz? Unlike the Nobel Prize, President Obama did earn that.

The disgruntled Dem and frequent Obama critic isn’t looking “Forward!” to dangerously long waits for medical care. And like many Americans, Lovitz is concerned about the devastating impact of Obamacare on business owners and their employees.

Government health care:

The efficiency of the DMV

The customer service of the Post Office

And

The compassion of the IRS

Time to get in shape and lay off the ‘good stuff’ because healthcare won’t be there for us.

In just a few years, if you don;t VOTE DEMOCRAT or CONTRIBUTE to DEMOCRATS, your Health Care won’t be nearly as good as the Democrats!!!

I don’t worry about maintenance, the real problem will be in an emergency and whether you’re worth it to fix.

government medicine:

increase in demand for services by indiviual patients
increase in overall cost to the taxpayers
decrease in quality of service to the individual patient
decrease in amount of service to the individual patient
increase in government bureaucracy and bureacritizing the medical field
increase in government controls over doctors' fees and their methods of treatment
decreases in medical advances
increased denial of medical treatments and procedures
increased long term potential of turning the aged into sacrificial victims

Not just health care. It will go as far as Party Membership in order to hold a job, or anything else - see tagline.

Krushchev was right. We have been conquered from within.

ObamaCare is going to be replaced by single payer government-run health care.

That’s been the intent all along.

Why? Because they can. They know no matter how awful the service or the product the “ company” isn’t getting replaced and they aren’t going to get fired....

Many are there because of Government programs and unmerited advancement. They have no stressors of being useful or being efficient as their check comes, 99% of the time.

It’s because they are bored and there is no challenge.

Many FReepers would die for a CA state employee pension, a plan that effectively gives you the return of a $1-2MM portfolio for life, plus effectively free Kaiser healthcare.

It is what Communism and Statism bring...note all the people “going postal?”...

Hey Jon. It’s called a “drive-in hospital” only you won’t be alive to drive out.

Because you pretty much CAN’T be fired, no matter how awful you are. One cry of ‘discrimination!’ or ‘racism!’ and you are promoted. I’ve been around it and have some stories. It’s nuts.

The postal workers here are some of the most sullen, unhelpful, rude people I have ever come across. It doesn’t matter if the line is 50 people deep; if it is time for their 19th ‘break’ of the day, they’re going to take it and leave the line standing there. No ‘please’ or ‘thanks’ or ‘have a nice day.’ I do everything I can to avoid going there.

Yes they did. Moron.

Gotta hand it to Lovitz. That is pretty much the only correct way to respond to a liberal.

Hopefully he is learning unlike some of the ex-libs I have known. Usually they go running back to the communism first time they get someone who, um...causes a thrill up the leg.

Because the attitude of workers in any service provider is set at the top.

Most people are drones, and if the boss demands a positive attitude and good service, AND enforces that demand through appropriate discipline (firings), an atmosphere of positive effort results. That discipline is only enforced when someone has something worthwhile on the line, such as one's life savings, home, or future standard of living.

That is why we still have some expectation of excellence in our military (at least the combat branches): NCOs don't want to die.

what the hell is wrong with them..

I’ve met a number of good and caring government employees who carry their own weight and then some but many are so secure in their jobs they operate like untouchables with huge chips on their shoulders almost instigating conflict to prove their power over the general population.
