Seriously. You Really Want the Gummint to "Run" Healthcare?

You recall "Fast & Furious", where the BATFE schemed to illegally allow mass-sales of weapons to drug cartels, and subsequently "lost track" of them.

Well, we have an echo.

The Mexican magazine Emeequis published portions of documents that describe how Drug Enforcement Administration agents, a Colombian trafficker-turned-informant and Mexican federal police officers in 2007 infiltrated the Beltran Leyva drug cartel and a cell of money launderers for Colombia's Valle del Norte cartel in Mexico.

The group of officials conducted at least 15 wire transfers to banks in the United States, Canada and China and smuggled and laundered about $2.5 million in the United States. They lost track of much of that money.

That's not unique.  Reading between the lines of the Governor's Commission on Waste, Fraud, and Abuse, it is clear that many State managers have also "lost track" of money.  A LOT of money.

But hey!  Incompetence and stupidity is a blessing.  They'll likely "lose track" of terrorists, too--whether pro-lifers or Muslim (they're all the same, you know.)

The only health care "run" by the federal government is Medicare and the VA, both very highly regarded by their patients.

The VA? You are kidding, right? Cuz the vets I work with don't think that highly of it. Something about the wait times and inconsistent level of care....
