Ils sont fous ces Americans

In Washington yesterday, 15,000 people marched against government healthcare, bearing placards screaming about communism and depicting Obama as Hitler (plus a little bonus racism on the side). Because if the government runs the health system, it might be as expensive and inefficient as the NHS (or indeed the New Zealand public healthcare system), with bureaucrats making treatment decisions, rather than offering people the cheapness, efficiency and choice of their current system of insurance and HMOs (that was irony, for people who know nothing about the horror of the US system).

These Americans really are crazy.
