U.K. on ObamaCare: Been There, Done That

I like this quote:

Even Obama famously gaffed upon this weighty truth with his ill-advised postal services analogy on the free market vs. government care: “UPS and FedEx are doing just fine,” he noted, “It’s the post office that’s always having problems.” (Isn’t that precious? Seriously – did Joe Biden write that line?)

Exactly why would Obama use a comparison of a government system that is constantly needing more public monies versus private companies, performing the same services, and doing a better job of it? Is he trying to let those who might actually be paying attention know that he’s aware that a government run health care system is going to be expensive and constantly sucking tax-payer dollars into a black hole?

From CNSNews:

Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address comes to mind. In the art of persuasion, it’s often most effective to paint in brief, colorful strokes.
 
A savvy reader with the handle “Jerseyvet” made an incisive observation after perusing my latest column concerning Obamacare:
 
“Start out with the premise that the demand for health care is infinite, but the supply is finite,” he wrote. “So health care has to be rationed. I trust the market, unfettered by governmental restrictions, more than the government. The Canadian and British systems of health care reinforce my belief.”
 
Jerseyvet – clearly one of those acerbate, “un-American” town hall “astroturfers” – has slung an arrow precisely through the heart of the matter.
