This'n'That; June Twenty-Fifth #1; owe-bamaKare Preview

VA Veterans' Healthcare is 'Single-Payer'
    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.
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!
    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.
'Splain to me again why YOU elected this Verdammte Arschloch!?!
