So-called economist Arthur Laffer actually said this on CNN:


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.

Of course, if you have any sense at all, you do like the Post Office, but okay, some morons think anything short of 100% perfectability in government services necessitates a switch to more expensive, less efficient corporate services. But surely even those morons know Medicare and Medicaid are government-run health insurance programs, right?

Of course they do. They just hope enough viewers at home are stupid enough not to see through their lies. God knows no one corrected Laffer's obvious lie when he uttered it on CNN.
