Government Run Health Care?

As tragic as the revelations coming out of the Walter Reed debacle are, this is nothing new to the thousands of military veterans who have used VA hospitals over the years. This should be a very glaring sign that the last thing in the world we want is government run health care. If they can't even take care of veterans, how do you think they will do with regular citizens? When there is no competition, there is no reason to do more than the minimums. As sad as that is, it is human nature and should give everyone pause who thinks they want the government to run the entire health care system of our country.

I am an Airforce brat from the 60's. I remember the VA hospitals then were awful and nothing was done when it was brought to people's attention, maybe a little cosmetics and that was it. It is a disgrace to our nation the way we treat people who are expected to serve and die for their country. I pray that it will change now, but we have to keep on them. At least the media can be good for something. Everyone needs to keep the attentionn on this or it will be forgotten. Featherirons' Mom

FI's Mom...It is definitely a disgrace that I hope will change this time for good. However, if it stays completely government run, I'm not too confident that it will.

The liberals will say, as they always do, that not enough money is being thrown at the problem. The state can do no wrong, of course, they simply don't have enough money to shore up more support, etc. etc.

Your right Johnny B, that's the answer we got from the system. Frankly its a bunch of crap in my mind. Why can't we cut funding to the wallets of congress members. They sure band together to make sure they are provided for after their service to the country. Is it possible to cut funding to Africa and other countries as well and take care of our own before we try to save the world?
