    “American politicians know better than to attempt a similar gesture, don’t they?”

    Anymore.

    This is what happens when the Government Monopoly has too much control of the economy. Just look at Cuba, North Korea, or China and the Soviet Union before they allowed markets to operate, they couldn’t do anything efficiently. Only Free Markets have the “Feedback of Competition” which forces continuous improvements in Quality, Service, and Price. This is why Obamacare is doomed to fail miserably.

    “In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
    By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
    But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: ‘If you don’t work you die.’ ”

    Thank you once again, Mr. Kipling.
