Arthur Laffer: A national healthcare program will be staffed by African-Americans:

That's how I read this statement from him:
"If you like the Post Office and the Department of Motor Vehicles and you think they're run well, just wait till you see Medicare, Medicaid and health care done by the government."
Let's be frank. From about the 1960's to the 1980's, the Post Office and other government agencies had a "disproportionate" number of blacks. That's due to a number of factors, the primary one being that the federal government was quicker to hire blacks than private enterprise. For a long time "the Post Office" and "the DMV" was code for such staffing.

But that's changed over the years as a visit to both places will attest. Laffer is dating himself, using an obsolete slur.


Uh, actually, I thought it was just Laffer coming out to once again publicly prove that he's an ignorant moron to whom nobody should pay attention.

We'll love Medicare and Medicaid once they're run by the government? They're ALREADY run by the government, Arthur you ignorant twit!

Always remember Hanlon's Razor: Never ascribe to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.

Hey, Laffer, here's 44 cents and a letter. Get it to my mom's front door, a few states away, in less than 48 hours (without using the post office). The USPS does it all the time.

notice how most of the people causing a ruckus at town hall meetings are old white men. after a lifetime of hatred, i bet they readily pick up on the coded race baiting.

old white men already benefiting from medicare, who don't give a shit about anybody else.
