You don’t need to be old — or have a wealth of experience — to understand that the federal government in the United States is huge. : That being said, one could easily deduce that because government is so big; it’s incredibly hard for it to act decisively. : Last week, the president “played Hardball with Chris Matthews” and gave another nauseating analysis on why Obamacare is a disaster.
