Really?

by Skip

Breitbart has this riff on Paul Krugman commenting on a TEA Party sign, who believes that his Nobel Prize in economics means that the rest of us should believe that his expertise transfers to politics;

As it happens, I’ve recently had fairly extensive dealings with both our health care system and with the New Jersey DMV. In one case, I encountered vast amounts of paperwork, mind-numbing bureaucracy, and extremely frustrating delays. In the other, my needs were met quickly and politely.

So far, then, it’s DMV 1, private health system (and I have very good insurance) 0.

If this is the new Obamacare pitch, it’s going to need some work.

Mine?

  • So, is this Paul Krugman, defender of Obama, Obamacare, and anything smacking of Big Government, finally realizing that Federalism actually works?   That something at the State level performs better than at a Federal level?
  • Or taking it in another road, given the complexity of Obamacare vs the relatively minor one of a DMV, is he advocating for a smaller Government reach and downsizing Obamacare?  After all, just WAIT until Federal bureaucrats get their claw totally into the insurance companies and supplant them.

    Unless they’ve reversed it recently, NJ DMV was mostly privatized.
