Bureaucracy Run Amok

As the scandal over roaches and other problems at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center unfolds, the Army’s surgeon general has been given his marching orders–the third such bigwig to pay for the fiasco with his job. It is bureaucracy run amok. Many politicians are saying it’s time for the government to take over.

Friends, that’s one of the main problems: The government is already running things at Walter Reed and at other facilities charged with treating wounded soldiers. If you want health care with the efficiency of the Post Office and the compassion of the IRS, get the government to do it.
