Yeah, I don't remember that either.
So let me get this straight, Barry. We should be in favor of government health care because it won't shut out private insurance programs just like the post office didn't shut out private mail options? I would like to see what the market share is for the U.S. Postal Service versus the private alternatives. Then I would like to see which ones are actually turning a profit.
Oh wait. I have my answer. A mere week ago, this article appeared on MSN's website with the headline "Post office mulls closing hundreds of offices: Postal agency is facing a nearly $7 billion potential loss."
So don't worry kiddos, the health program that Obama is promoting will be run every bit as efficiently as the US Postal Service! Feel better now?
