Turd sandwich revisited

Here's a fun anecdote about the debt deal. I know a guy who was working for a private company on a project to help make Medicare more efficient. This project was funded by government spending, yes. But it was being implemented by a private company, who hired a skilled worker, to make an inefficient system better and thus save money long-term.

What was passed by Congress had this effect:
- A skilled worker lost a job
- A private company lost a contract
- A system desperately needing fixes won't get them, thus costing government MORE money in the long term

See, the system TOTALLY works.
