The result and this was certainly an intended consequence will be a medical insurance system at first dominated by and eventually exclusive to the federal government.
...The VA offers precisely what Obamacare offers: not a guarantee of treatment in time of need, but a guarantee of a place in line for treatment at a time of the bureaucracy's choosing. For some, that time will never come.
Bureaucracies rightly see people as captive clients, not as customers free to take their business elsewhere. (If Obamacare is allowed to remain the law, eventually there will be no "elsewhere.") So the place in line can change or simply disappear to suit the needs of the bureaucracy. Unless, of course, you "know somebody."
Put government in charge of health care and medical need will be well down the list of reasons for making any decision.
When abuses come to light, everyone will be mad as hell. But after a little window dressing, the same system, based on the same false promise, with the same deficiencies and the same impossible mission, will go on and on.
Not our families. Not our Staff.
We, and Moslems, felons and illegals are EXEMPT.
If I end up on a death bed I’m going to have someone haul me to the VA Hospital and lay me out on the sidewalk to die with a sign that says “I’m here for treatment.”
“...The VA offers precisely what Obamacare offers: not a guarantee of treatment in time of need, but a guarantee of a place in line for treatment at a time of the bureaucracy’s choosing. For some, that time will never come.
Those two sentences are IMO an excellent turn of phrase worthy of committing to memory when it’s time to make one of those tiresome reminders to someone naive enough to think ACA will somehow function for them in a way worth 40% more than what they currently pay.
Precisely right. And those two sentences perfectly define “death panel.”
