Great quote. I’d say that higher education gets close particularly if we take a generous view of what “buyer” means.

    As a Medicare recipient suckling on the federal sow, I appreciate WC’s posts. Some time, Mike, call me to find out about the intracies of signing for one’s infusion sets, to protect against a black market in infusion sets, or the Medicare rule that you have to see two doctors four times a year. I am personally relieved that my health insurance bill is lower, but it is sickening to be a welfare recipient. Maybe I should take Warren Geezer’s advice and ship the Feds half a million or so.
