Be scared, folks

The U.S. gov'ment can't run an efficient railroad ...

U.S. taxpayers spent about $32 subsidizing the cost of the typical Amtrak passenger in 2008, about four times the rail operator's estimate, according to a private study. Forty-one of Amtrak's 44 routes lost money in 2008, said the study by Subsidyscope, an arm of the non-profit Pew Charitable Trusts (Wall Street Journal, 28 October 2009)

... and a great many folks (see: President B. Hussein Obama, Sen. Harry Reid, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi) want the federal gov'ment to run health care.

Be scared, folks.
