Stupid Quote of the Week

Taken from today’s appearance on CNN of conservative
economist Arthur Laffer:
“If you like the Post Office and the Department of Motor Vehicles and you think they’re run well, just wait till you see Medicare, Medicaid and health care done by the government.”
As Steve Benen remarks in his Political Animal column, “Regrettably, no one laughed out loud on the argument. Worse, no one bothered to note that Medicare and Medicaid are run by the government, and that Laffer’s observation was child-like foolishness.”
