The president is making sense

Why would it drive private insurance out of business? If private insurers say that the marketplace provides the best quality health care; if they tell us that they’re offering a good deal, then why is it that the government, which they say can’t run anything, suddenly is going to drive them out of business? That’s not logical.

Somehow UPS and FedEx can compete against the post office for package delivery and express delivery. The latter can even compete against email and the dwindling number of Fax machines out there. But the health care companies are special. They must never be forced to compete. Or disclose. Or anything. Doing so would break the whole system.
