Yes in fact, the government has done a few things very well indeed. First it has spent more money than it has available to spend! By doing so the debt is now astronomical and growing larger each day. Secondly the leaders, one in particular, currently holding office have done a wonderful job at creating racial divide to levels unseen since the 1960s. Sidestepping law is another action the officials in DC are very good at. Obama care is living proof of that, should it withstand the scrutiny of the court challenge. Sadly the government has a horrible record for managing the duties they are constitutionally mandated to do. Even more sad is the fact we the people have allowed this to happen. November offers the opportunity to change that.
