    Who Do You Trust? Looks like people don't have much confidence in healthcare reform:

    Overall, about 30% of those surveyed say they trust the Bush administration's ability to come up with good policies for improving and reforming the U.S. health-care system. But Americans aren't much more confident in Republicans (31%), Democrats (45%) and Sen. Hillary Clinton (41%) to reform the health-care system.

    Personally, I'm more worried about each party's ability to confront and contain political Islam than their ability to reform our healthcare market. It's by far the greater threat.

    Not my original thought, but if you want to imagine health care run by Uncle Sam, imagine the accuracy and efficiency of the Post Office, combined with the caring qualities of the IRS.
