Government Efficiency: One Anecdote

Michelle Malkin has an email from the census worker, who is frustrated by the waste here.

If you think that government run health care would somehow magically be more efficient, I have a bridge you might be interested in buying.

I heard a Harvard professor physician interviewed on local radio. The interviewer commented on the frustration of dealing with insurance companies, and she said she would rather be dealing with a single payer government agency that at least would be responsive to political pressure.

What??? There are so many flaws in that logic.

How responsive is big government to a little guy who gets treated badly? I suggest it is about as responsive as Congress was to massive public opposition to the government takeover of health care. Nada.

I don't know what that professor has been smoking, but she is clearly not reality-based.

You can change to a different insurance company if one treats you badly. Try to change to a different federal government.

Update: Another anecdote on the census.
