Competition? With the government? Are you retarded?!

Washington Post: Obama Touts Public Plan at Health Care Town Hall
"One of the options in the exchange should be a public insurance option -- because if the private insurance companies have to compete with a public option, it will keep them honest and help keep prices down," Obama said.

Two things, Mr. President...

ONE: You don't even know what competition is. Actually, the very fact that you used the word "compete" shows how unsure you are of the American peoples' true support for your omnipotent and omnivorous government healthcare. By using that nasty free market word, you tried to pull in the those non-socialists who still think you have anything less than complete government power over the health industry in mind. What's the matter President Obama? Afraid your political capital is running out???

TWO: No one, no thing, and no entity on Earth has the resources, power, control, and capital to "compete" with the United States Federal Government. There is no more competition between a private hospital and a federally backed hospital than there is competition between nematodes and asteroids. Federal entities have infinite resources, cannot be sued, have no form of bankruptcy, have no requirement for success or measure of failure, can print their own money, may mandate restrictions on opponents, tax opponents, investigate opponents, and imprison opponents.


How stupid do you think we are?
