Government health care

As Pres Obama begins his push for government run health care, it is important to remember that we already have government health care for a chunk of the US population. It's called the VA.

From the AP-

3000 veterans are at risk for AIDS/HIV after colonoscopies were performed with improperly sterilized equipment.


Improperly sterilized.

Any proponent of federal-run healthcare should be forced to use TriCare and military/VA hospitals. Maybe they would change their mind.

The irony of it is that the workers at the VA have the advantage of serving the men and women who served in combat. They have an intrinsic satisfaction aside from their salary.

Government health care workers would have no such overriding desire to do the right thing.
