At a townhall meeting only slightly less staged than the Broadway production of "Les Miserables," the president, in a seeming burst of Tourette's, declared that government-run health insurance would be no real threat to private companies because "Fedex and UPS are doing fine - it's the (government run) post office that's always having problems!"
So his defense of Obamacare is that it will be too riddled with problems to compete fairly with our current healthcare providers? Interesting.
Moreover, Fedex and UPS are considered superior services to the post office, and they're making money. The post office is billions in debt, and sinking fast.
Of course, Fedex and UPS have one big advantage over private insurance companies; they're not facing bills which would make it illegal for citizens to choose their services over those of the government-mandated service.
