Quote of the day -- on America's health care system
"The problem with Obamacare is not, of course, too much socialism. It’s still too much capitalism. The reason why it's so screwed up is because we have to have this Rube Goldberg plan that allows for pharmaceutical companies to get their cut and insurance companies to get their cut and hospitals to enrich themselves and doctors to get rich. It should be a non-profit thing. Perhaps elections should not be a profit-making endeavor or cost two billion dollars. Of course, we're American, the exceptionalism, exceptionally stupid on this point but we are exceptional."
--Bill Maher, in an interview yesterday with David Gregory on "Meet the Press"
