I love irony because it can drive a point home like few other things can. A sledgehammer, a wrecking ball, a canon can all work but irony seems so much more refined. Like when the president holds the Mayo Clinic up as a shining example of a model clinic. So what does the Mayo Clinic do? Some of them have stopped accepting medicare patients because they're losing too much money on them. So wait. Explain to me how we're supposed to save money by using a clinic as a model that no longer can afford to treat medicare patients? The first step to solving a problem is properly identifying what the problems actually are. It seems that the politicians involved don't even know what the underlying issues really are.
