Note where he said, “U.P.S. and FedEx are doing just fine. It’s the post office that’s always having problems.”
My fears are now allayed: I'm thrilled to hear that government-run health care will be as efficient as the post office. And that's according to the president.
Your hard-earned money will be collected from your paycheck via taxes, and sent to finance a program that will be run like the post office.
Let me say that I have a brother-in-law that works for the post office. He's a good guy. And most of the postal workers I've met are good people, too. I say that so they won't ... well ... go postal on me.
Anyway, the president has convinced me. We need to have government-run health care. And the post office example sold me.
But, there are some of you, I'm sure, that aren't yet convinced. So, as a loyal American (who doesn't what to be flagged), I present other reasons to let the government run health care. Here are things that will present excellent examples of how government-run organizations (regardless of the level of government) operate:
- The quality of public schools
- The NEA funding of porn
- The DMV
- Oil for Food
- Paying farmers to not grow crops
- Student visas
- The TSA
- The IRS
If these examples don't show you just how wonderful a government-run health care system will be, I don't know what will convince you.
I watched in disbelief. Obama offered the Post Office as an example of how the public healthcare option would enable private insurance competition. REWIND ... he said what???ReplyDelete
I think O. and Joe are now the main event in Celebrity Gaffe Match 2009. You just can't make this stuff up.
