I Say It Here, It Comes Out There

Yesterday at President Obama's town hall in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, a person in the crowd complained that creating a public option like Medicare would break the private insurance industry: "Who can compete with the government? The answer is nobody." Obama replied, "UPS and FedEx are doing just fine, right? It's the post office that's always having problems."

Sounds like someone at the White House has been reading my column.
