While speaking at Virginia Democratic Senate Caucus fundraiser today, former President Bill Clinton claimed that no successful country on earth operates on the notion that government is the problem. He then listed a variety of things that the government "provides" for the people, including affordable healthcare, economic opportunity, education opportunity and "getting to the future."

Considering test scores have decreased significantly since the Department of Education was founded, healthcare premiums have skyrocketed with the passing of ObamaCare and the economy isn't growing because of smothering government regulation, I'd say Clinton is a bit off the  mark on this one.
