I was at the auto parts store the other day and one of the guys at the counter was discussing health care politics with a customer.

So I asked him - if this store was operated by the federal gov't instead of Napa how do you think that would affect you? Wages, benefits, working conditions, etc.. How would gov't operation of the auto parts business affect the costs of this part that I just bought?

He knows the answer to that question. We all know the answer to that question. If government enterprise is so much cheaper and/or efficient than capitalistic commerce then why aren't we all working for the State?
