PIOG: Bill OReilly was right! I voted for Obama because I want "stuff" from the government

This is not a PA Post.

Maybe I "feel entitled" but I have high expectations of the folks we elect to serve us and manage our tax dollars.

I expect "stuff" like safe and updated infrastructure, military protection, access to quality affordable education and health care for everyone, a support system for those in a time of need, help keeping those who would take advantage of us through power and force from doing so, help protecting our environment from those that would strip it for temporary profits, support for emergency responders and a fair chance for every citizen.

I am part of the 52% that pays my taxes and this is what I expect from the government for it.

I pay state and local taxes too. I want the police and firemen to come if I need them.

I want power lines that work and will allow me to use electricity in my house.

If a disaster hits, I want folks to come and repair those power lines.

I am not from a military family, but I want our troops to have a GI bill and better support when their service ends.

I want my elected gov't officials to work together for the greater good of the whole, and not be a clog in the machine for selfish reasons.

If we expected nothing from the government, then why would we even bother to have one?
