The government versus the real world

July 19th, 2006

Why is it that every year TVs, viagra usa rx stereos, health and computers offer more features and better functions for the same or less cost, ampoule but the government seems to cut services while raising taxes?

(Interestingly enough, the one thing in the real world that acts the same way as government is health care. Everyone agrees that health care is broken. Does that mean everyone should agree that government is broken?)

    Ironically, the government does health care cheaper and more efficiently than the private sector . . .

    I think you’re going to have to reference numbers on that, Jay.

    I believe (but don’t know) that government often gets better deals on private healthcare insurance (the power of bulk negotiating), but if you’re talking about single payer systems like Canada has, you’ll probably get an argument about whether you can compare apples to oranges).
