Freudian Slip? Obama Says Government Health Care Will Introduce “Greater Inefficiencies”

A bit of accidental truth for your Monday afternoon:

“The reforms we seek would bring greater competition, choice, savings and inefficiencies to our health care system,” Obama said in remarks after a health care roundtable with physicians, nurses and health care providers. “And greater stability and security to America’s families and businesses.”
The White House quickly recognized the mistake and inserted a “sic” in the remarks sent to reporters on Monday afternoon.

A slip of the tongue for Obama, clearly, but given what the government has done to existing health care programs like Medicare and Medicaid it was more accurate than what he meant to say.

Curmudgeonly sesquipedalian.
