It doesn't even function as well as state bureaucracies.Now, ObamaCare, which affects an industry larger than the economies of France or Great Britain, is proving the Department of Health and Human Services can be more incompetent than many Third World governments. These past few weeks, poor Mexico could sign up urban poor for health care with less mess than Washington did folks needing insurance in San Antonio.
