VA Care: A Sneak Preview to ObamaCare

It’s fair to lay the blame for the disgraceful treatment of US vets by the hospitals meant to serve them on President Obama.

It’s fair because in 2008, then-Sen. Obama, a member of the Veterans Affairs Committee, made the VA hospitals a major part of his campaign for president.

During his transition into the presidency, Obama proposed to “make the VA a leader of national health-care reform so that veterans get the best care possible.”

Once again, the president tells us he only learned about the problems when the news reported it (or when he saw himself talking about it on TV) and is “mad as hell.”

The president’s reaction is a pathetic lie.

But the real problem is government-provided health care. In truth, we didn’t have to pass the bill, as then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said of ObamaCare, to find out what was in it.

People who understand the nature of government aren’t surprised at all. In fact, this is exactly what we would expect and predict about any government health-care system. People will die unnecessarily waiting for service. That’s how it always works. That’s the way it has always worked at the VA. The only difference is it has gotten worse under Barack Obama, the patron saint of government health care.

In fact, in 2009, Obama announced that the VA would be the model for his future nationalization of the entire health-care system – what we now know as Obamacare.

Look at the VA hospitals — unaccountable bureaucracy, long waiting lists, rationed care, extreme waste, inefficiency — are all the hallmark of government health care.

If the government can’t even make such a system work for our vets, what makes anyone think it will work for the rest of us?

I hope we have once again reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts. — Ronald Reagan
