Here's my campaign slogan: "Protecting America from the Train Wreck of Government Heath Care."
Hmmm. This really is a great metaphor for the whole of the Federal government, isn't it? Not to appear hard-hearted to the innocent victims here, but there is a delicious irony here.
I think you guys are missing something here. There is actually an opportunity for huge cost savings by leveraging existing core competences within government:
Admissions can be handled by the DMV
Medical Imaging by the USGS
Medical Records by the Library of Congress
Surgery by USDA
Preventative care by the National Weather Service
Food services by FEMA
Billing by the IRS
...and the whole thing will be delivered by the Post Office.
Don't forget those great GM ambulances!
