I agree the government is not a business, but Willard insists he can run it like a business like he did at Baine.

I think that means he will dismantle the US Postal Service and sell parts of the business for $1 to his "business associates" (I have friends who own postal services!). Ditto the Dept of Education (I have friends who own for-profit schools!). The Dept of Energy (I have friends who own energy companies!). Dept of HHW (I have friends who own tenements and for-profit hospitals, and who make the 47% sing for their supper!). The FDA (I have friends who own drug companies!). The EPA (I have friends who pollute, with my permission of course!).
