This is your health care. This is your health care run by government
Posted by: McQ on Saturday, March 24, 2007

I wish I had two pictures to illustrate the point. Obviously one would be the Walter Reed annex.

Anyway, a report released on the system recently favored by the left as an example of a good government health care system concluded:
The Department of Veterans Affairs' 1,400 clinics and hospitals suffer from hundreds of problems, including worn carpet, damaged floor tiles, leaking roofs and cockroach infestations, a department report released Wednesday shows.

"The overwhelming majority of the issues identified are normal 'wear and tear' items that are continually addressed through regular inspections and recurring maintenance," Veterans Affairs Secretary Jim Nicholson said in a letter Monday to regional directors.
Record revenues. Record spending. Hundreds of problems. Yet somehow, the myth states that the problems we face now in the health care arena will all somehow magically get better if we just let the bureaucracy of government take over. Yes, indeed. We have so many examples of just such a thing happening. I mean, just look at education.

Oh, and trust me, any problems they might face after such a takeover will also be labeled the result of nothing more than "normal wear and tear". I mean since they'll be doing the inspecting of their system, they can call it pretty much whatever they want, can't they?

My favorite line?
Although the discoveries of mold in several hospitals raised concerns, Van Diepen said, investigators found no health issues.
Nah. Mold is only a health issue in the civilian world. Like I said, when it's the government's system, they'll decide what is or isn't a 'health issue'. You? Just move along citizen ... nothing to see here.

No, they will labeled the result of "lack of funding." If a future Democratically controlled Congress requests a 500% increase in funding for the nationalized healthcare system, and the final budget includes only a 450% increase the New York Times will explain how the "Republican funding cut" caused the problems.

Nationalized health case in other countries has forced patients into waiting lines for non emergency care. While the cost is not paid directly from the citizens, pocket, there is no free lunch, they pay through taxes. If you want to see what national healthcare would look like, examine the country’s educational system. It’s a good example of the efficiency of a governmental monopoly. With Washington administering the plan we would have a”National Death Care” system.
