Universal Healthcare at its Finest
The next time you hear a Presidential Candidate promise he or she will implement Universal Health care across America, read this story.
It's about the appalling conditions at VA hospitals. Of course the press is trying to pin this on Bush, but VA hospitals have been an issue since World War I. There have been some significant improvements at some of the worst locations, but the fact that many are still substandard is pathetic.
Pathetic, but nothing new.
Even worse, the VA hospital system has always been advertised by many as a utopia of Government-provided health care. In reality, it's a mirror image of the Canadian/British government-provided system.
Universal Health care. I'll buy off on it the day they can perfect the VA system.

I watched a lot on the news this morning about Walter Reed and all the problems there. That's very sad - especially for our military men and women.
But, you're exactly right. These problems existed before George W. Bush took office.

HillaryCare Anyone???10:25 PM
I like Boortz, but couldn't listen to him today. I've been in bed trying to recover from this damn flu virus from hell, so I missed all my AM radio commuting stations.
He's usually right about stuff like that though.
