Paul Krugman, New York Times:

At a recent town hall meeting, a man stood up and told Representative Bob Inglis to “keep your government hands off my Medicare.” The congressman, a Republican from South Carolina, tried to explain that Medicare is already a government program — but the voter, Mr. Inglis said, “wasn’t having any of it.”

I'm curious to know how many legitimate "health services" could be rendered for the amount of money the private health lobby spends in achieving this kind of "outcome."
