Funny thing, Paul Ryan’s HHS Sec. Kathleen Sebelius to Resign because Private Sector Contractor Screwed Up??

Oh sure, governments bad when private sector contractors take taxpayer money and mess everything up. That makes sense? Why isn't that ever the issue? 

But that’s just how Republicans are spinning it now. Under Republicans, heads must always roll, except when they’re running something like Scott Walker’s own Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation.
Talk about being responsible....
jsonline: Ryan and his fellow hypocrites keep picking issues that usually comes back to bite them. U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan on Wednesday called on Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to resign before releasing a letter that asks her to detail costs of the "tech surge" needed to fix the Obamacare website. "I think people should be held responsible," he said.

The biggest lie in America is that the private sector, responsible for the largest economic fiasco in world history, is always efficient and better than "gubbermint".

Privatization has entirely cemented much of the less-developed world into perpetual poverty -- some would say essentially slavery.

There are no free markets nor a free market fairy that pushes supply and demand to an ideal point -- that is a lie taught in schools.

Adam Smith himself acknowledged the role of public services and goods. The markets he theorized about (he had no mathematical proofs) DO NOT EXIST IN ADVANCED CAPITALISM.

And likely didn't actually exist in his day either.
