When you want to really screw something up, you let the government run something. The politics, the beaurcratic nonsense, the inefficiencies, the incompetence, the waste of time and money is incredible.
Most people, for instance, don't need a college education. It used to be fun and reasonable to go to socialize with opposite sex and learn how to be an adult while taking a few educational courses. Tuition over the past 20 years has skyrocketed over 450% because the government took over the student loan system. The schools don't care and jack up the cost because "the government will let these moron kids get a loan for whatever we want".
The same for healthcare. Get the government OUT!!!!!
