As bad as the VA system is a national single payer health care system in the US would be even worse. It would be just like public schools. Public education is terrible in the US. It cost a ton of money and produces dismal results and anybody that can afford to do so will opt out and send their kids to a private school even though they are the ones paying for the public schools. Socialized medicine in the US would produce a high cost and poorly managed system that the welfare queens would use and anybody that could afford to go to a real doctor would do so even thought they were taxed to pay for the poor system. Terrible idea. These Moon Bats love the idea of free health care because they think that just because they are alive they are entitled to have somebody else pay for their health care. Despicable, isn't it?
