Bill Maher Says It

That doesn't make it true, but I agree with him.

"How stupid is it when people say, 'Oh yeah, that's all we need, the federal government telling Detroit how to build cars or Wells Fargo how to run a bank. You want them to look like the post office?' Yeah. You mean the place that takes a note in my hand in Los Angeles on Monday and gives it to my sister in New Jersey on Wednesday for forty-two cents? Let me just be the first to say I would be thrilled if America's health care system was anywhere near as functional as the post office."

You can watch it on video here if you're the kind of person who prefers that kind of thing.
