Grade Your Government

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - U.S. lawmakers are considering establishing the largest spending and oversight program in U.S. History: Nationalized Health Care. Many citizens say they are terrified at the prospect of the Government running a program that will control the medical care and well-being of every man, woman and child. A question heard often in discussions throughout the country, and East Texas, is: What is one thing the Government does well? It is an important question and we're going to let East Texans shed some light on the answer.

It's time for East Texans to "Grade Your Government." We want East Texans who have personal experiences with each Federal Agency to grade the services and treatment they received.

To fill out our "Grade Your Government" form, click here.

After we tally the grade, we will attempt to talk with a representative of each particular agency to respond to the grades.

We're going to zero in on Federal Agencies that are supposed to provide important government services to benefit the people of East Texas: the Social Security Administration, U.S. Postal Service, and Medicare program. We'll also take a look at the most recent "high tax dollar" program the U.S. Government administered: "Cash For Clunkers."

Watch KLTV News at 6 every Wednesday and Thursday night as East Texans "Grade Your Government."
