Why We Need the Government to Manage Our Health Care
If you want to know what to expect from the federal government as they manage your automobile companies, your banks, your insurance companies and MAYBE EVEN YOUR HEALTH CARE, you might want to consider the stunning management accomplishments of Social Security, Medicare and, of course, your POST OFFICE which we are told in today's Washington Post that:
Confronting a sharp decline in mail volume tied to the recession and the continuing migration to e-mail and online payment options, the Postal Service projects a net loss of $7 billion this fiscal year and debt exceeding $10 billion, leading to a cash shortfall of about $1 billion. Losses are expected next year as well.
