That darn gubment -- a continuing series

Always in search of references to Wyoming, wherever they may arise. But I missed this on Jon Stewart. Jon played a clip of Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) putting down the DMV and post office and other governmental (and quasi-governmental) entities.

Here's the segment:

John Boehner (film clip): If you like going to the DMV and think they do a great job or you like going to the post office and think it's the most efficient thing you've run into to then you'll love the government run health care system.

Jon Stewart: If you like the military protecting the country or doctors helping veterans you'll love this new government plan. By the way, why are you bagging on the post office? For forty four cents, someone comes to your house, picks up some piece of crap you wrote and takes it to Wyoming on a plane....

Why do Repubs like the gubment agencies that blow up stuff but hate those that deliver services to the citizenry? Rep. Boehner has been in Congress for almost 20 years, and has been the benificiary of the gubment's excellent health care system which he says isn't good enough for the rest of us. Wonder how many times Rep. Boehner has ridden the D.C. Metro and visited the excellent gubment-funded museums and galleries along the National Mall? Don't members of Congress get free mailing privileges paid for by you and me, with mail delivered by the USPS?
