Having a single-payer health care system is one of the primary precepts of the owe-bamaKare fiasco. The Veterans Administration's health care system is just such a single-payer.
In the early morning hours a caller into the "Red Eye Radio(WBAP-Dallas; 820AM 1-6AM, eastern)" show--an overnight trucker-oriented radio program--illustrated the VA system as the perfect example of owe-bamaKare. The caller used two personal experiences to illustrate:
1. The caller is on five life-preserving prescription drugs, three of which the VA doesn't provide. The caller is out $430.00 per month for these drugs. Oh, the VA does reimburse him $25 each, for the three drugs.The caller also related that to have an MRI involved at least a one-year wait. This is what we have to look forward to IF owe-bamaKare is upheld by 'The Supremes!!' Many have spoken in the past to the life-ENDINGLY long waits in other countries that have their own version of owe-bamaKare, not to mention the "one-percenters" in those countries who come to the U.S. for advanced health and surgical care.
2. The caller was recently in an accident wherein he suffered (4 or 5) broken teeth. He was told it would be AT LEAST 5 months before he could be seen by a VA dentist!
