Quote du Jour

From Bionic Octopus:
For-profit healthcare is the moral equivalent of war profiteering. It is morally bankrupt and relies for its perpetuation on demonstrably false shibboleths of market efficiency, the primary importance of 'consumer choice', and capitalist incentivization. The United States stands practically alone in maintaining this barbaric let-them-eat-cake system of 'caring' for its citizens' health. When will we join civilization?
Well hey--we're also the world leaders in war profiteering, and our government's goal isn't to join civilization; it's to force civilization to join us.
