Obama admits private companies can handle business better than government-spawned entities!

I rest my case!
 
President Obama admits private companies can handle business better than government-spawned entities.  Of course that wasn't his intent but what other conclusion could you reach?
 

"He [Obama] also disputed the notion that adding a government-run insurance plan
into a menu of options from which people could pick would drive private insurers out
of business, in effect making the system single-payer by default.

As long as they have a good product and the government plan has to sustain itself
through premiums and other non-tax revenue, private insurers should be able to
compete with the government plan, Obama said.

"They do it all the time," he said. "UPS and FedEx are doing just fine. ... It's the Post Office that's always having problems."

Exactly!  Ginnie Mae, Freddie Mac, AmTrak, Post Office... ALL of these businesses have problems and continually come to the government hat in hand for more money (your tax dollars). They can't run on their own!

My question: What makes you think the government can run a GIANT ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL HMO any better???
