    Today I got a flat tire on my way to work. I dropped my car off at the shop next door to where I work and asked them to fix it.
    At 9:30, the shop manager called me and gave me the estimate for the repair.
    Fix tire $15
    Replace both axles $1200
    Replace transmission $1850
    Being a conservative, I declined the portions that didn't really need fixing and paid the $15 for the tire repair.

    Flat tire = People
    Axle = Health insurance
    Transmission = Medical care

    The way our government is trying to revamp our entire health care system because we have a few minor problems would be exactly like your mechanic replacing the axles and transmission on your car because you have a flat tire.
