Axis Community Health receives $1.3M in stimulus funds

Original post made by Carl, Del Prado, on Mar 3, 2009

Can someone explain how our this creates long-term economic growth? Or is this socialized health care masquerading as stimulus? And when the stimulus money runs out, what happens to the 65 jobs? Or will the federal government continue/expand this program as an entitlement?

What do you think?

You are SO RIGHT, Carl! This is one sorry example where socialism is spreading like a cancer. If there were a demonstrated need for these services, some enterprising entrepreneur could have provided them...and much more efficiently than the government, undoubtedly.

We have to fight this socialism, Carl! Locally we have to defeat our socialist congressman as one objective. He is a danger to US free enterprise system and our American culture.

Think about it like this: lots of people who can't afford medical care will receive some care and other will be employed for awhile.

Also, if there are tons of "illegals" who can utilize services, I'll do my best to make sure that they do! OK by you...hmmmmmmmmmmm...tee hee hee, tee hee hee...
