Krugman: I Hope Obamacare Is Like DMV

Krugman: I Hope Obamacare Is Like DMV

Nothing says good sense like Paul Krugman these days. The Nobel Prize-winning economist recently said that the United States should go back to a 91% top tax bracket; now he says at The New York Times that he’s looking forward to healthcare being run by the DMV. Seriously:

As it happens, I’ve recently had fairly extensive dealings with both our health care system and with the New Jersey DMV. In one case, I encountered vast amounts of paperwork, mind-numbing bureaucracy, and extremely frustrating delays. In the other, my needs were met quickly and politely.

So far, then, it’s DMV 1, private health system (and I have very good insurance) 0.

If this is the new Obamacare pitch, it’s going to need some work.
