    I find the lack of logic in the connection to Health Care Disturbing.

    The connection is clear.

    The same bungling bureaucratic mindset can't find one dude who went in through the out lane, in an allegedly "secure" area at an airport, is supposedly now the route to lower costs and raised efficiency in the realm of medical services?

    I don't think so.

    So you're going to judge an entire concept off one incident. As opposed to every other day of the year outside specific incidents such as these where it works? :eusa_eh:

    I don't see the point in judging an entire system or group off one incident/person. Especially when that incident/person could be specifically selected to point out the flaw of the incident/person.

    Example: The political group you are apart of has several racists. If we are to use the same logic, then the entire group is racist where it's clearly not.

    The same people who fail at one job, we are going to give them another twice as hard as well as the one they are already failing at.

    They fail at regulating banks.

    They fail at airport security

    and soon they will fail at health care.

    I wish we could put the people who think this is a good idea into a separate system. They want to earn Darwin awards, by all means, let them. But I don't want them taking me with them.

    The banks won't allow themselves to be regulated properly. It's not through lack of trying.

    How have they failed at airport security? In both the Richard Reid and recent cases onboard aircraft, it was the failure of third-party (non-US) staff, not the TSA.

    Is health care brilliant at the moment? For everyone?

    Fail at regulating banks? Tough to regulate people who don't want to be regulated and pay off politicians to prevent that from happening.

    Fail at Airport Security? How many people have died due to the security at a U.S. Airport since 9/11? I'll be waiting for the answer.

    I'm sure that has nothing to do with slashing the budgets of the agencies involved in regulating banks and filling the agencies with people from those banks.
