A few points to ponder:
1. The Post Office is on track to lose $7 billion this year. How much confidence does that instill in you about a government-run health care plan, which encompasses much, much more money and resources?
2. When you have a letter or package you need delivered on time, do you send FedEx, UPS, or USPS? Who do you trust, the government, or the private company?
3. How "fair" can the competition between government-run organizations like the Post Office, and private companies like FedEx, really be? When the federal laws give government-run organizations an advantage, it discourages private competition, which we all know is good for the market and the consumer.
Obama may have hit something with his spot-on analogy of the Post Office. If he'd only listen to his own logic...

I saw some footage of the President's recent townhall in New Hampshire and his use of the USPS caught me a little by surprise. I think my good friend Annie may have the best reaction I've seen yet.
