Maybe an even bigger wreck is the ultimate answer.

The Obama administration can’t even back the “pass it to find out what’s in it” mini-van out of its parking spot without running people over, but in spite of that, Colin Powell thinks it’s time they took the wheel of a double-decker health care bus.

From ABC News/Yahoo:

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell has waded into the health care debate with a broad endorsement of the kind of universal health plan found in Europe, Canada and South Korea.

“I am not an expert in health care, or Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, or however you choose to describe it, but I do know this: I have benefited from that kind of universal health care in my 55 years of public life,” Powell said, according to the Puget Sound Business Journal, last week at an annual “survivors celebration breakfast” in Seattle for those who, like Powell, have battled prostate cancer. “And I don’t see why we can’t do what Europe is doing, what Canada is doing, what Korea is doing, what all these other places are doing.”

Europe, Canada and Korea all have a “single-payer” system, in which the government pays for the costs of health care.

Harry Reid no doubt agrees 100 percent with Powell, the Democrat that Democrats love to call a Republican.
