Health care isn't really my specialty, but I can't help mentioning an email posted by Megan McArdle, who's been recounting unhappy experiences with various motor vehicle departments. After railing against the District Department of Motor Vehicles for several paragraphs (which everyone complains about but where I always, inexplicably, get good service), the emailer concludes:

I can't wait for the government to take over our healthcare system.

Me neither! Because then we can look forward to occasional bureaucratic errors, as opposed to deliberate maleficence. Seriously, has this person never filed a claim before?
