"Government is an insurance company with an army"

Paul Krugman says it best: "Where is the waste?"

The US government is basically two organizations: an insurance company, and an army.

The insurance company part of it is run quite efficiently. From what I know of large companies (and small), the US government is run more efficiently than most US companies, and is definitely more efficient than corporations in many other parts of the world. About the army part, I don't know enough to comment.

I wish enough people were giving credit to the US government for its professionalism and efficiency. More importantly, I wish corporations could start taking lessons from it. There's a lot to learn here...
