If you're only smelling on rat in Washington, you are either too far away or your nose is not working properly. The place is full of them, and Harry Reid is the biggest, and most stinky of all. Every American should be on top of the Cliven Bundy land grab attempt by Reid and the BLM. What do you call a sitting senator who deliberately sends 20 federal agents to situation where all twenty of them could have been killed, and for what? A chance to bilk the Bundy's out of their ranch in order for him and his son to make millions off the Bundy ranch by selling their property to a communist Chinese firm looking to build a solar farm on their ranch? Sniff that rat out and study it. When you do, you'll see more of how the rats in DC operate. It's a taste of what's to come in the US very soon.

Here is a typical goverment scenario. Private sector firms were running the Federal Flood Insurance Program for years and the program was operating in the black since its inception. Then, some nutbags in Congress decided that the Federal Government should take the program out of the private sector and place it in the public sector/Federal Gov't. The result? A $24 Billion Deficit----that's billion with a B! We seem to forget history and keep repeating the same mistake--letting government run programs or agencies with massive deficits, while the private sector can operate similar programs or provide services at a profit, i.e., the Postal Service AMTRAC, Social Security, Medicare, Medicad, etc.
