For those unaware of what's going on with the Veterans Affairs department, it's a serious issue that's a precursor of what Obamacare will be like in a few years. A top official has resigned since the scandal became public knowledge. While the details remain slippery as the White House tries to hide them, the reality is that government-run health care at the VA will be no different than Obamacare for all Americans. The difference is that everyone will suffer, not just veterans.
Here are some details from FitsNews:
Government run health care has come under increased scrutiny as America has learned of the bureaucratic decisions to let patients die rather than receive treatment.
No, this story isn’t about Obamacare, although it does provide a pretty bleak look into the future as the death panels and cost based health decisions come flowing out of Health and Human Services cubicle farms.
This preview is provided by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, a Department which runs the crumbling VA health system.
CNN reports that at least 40 veterans died waiting to see a doctor at the Phoenix Veterans Health Care System, and that the bureaucrats in charge had created a secret list of patients who were determined to be too ill to help, so they denied them care and allowed them to die.
This sickening revelation that top level federal government career officials played God with the lives of those who served in our nation in the military should stand as a wake up primal scream to anyone who still harbors the idealistic notion of a beneficent government run health care system for the rest of us.
If those charged with caring for the men and women who put their lives on the line for our nation can casually throw away their lives by simply denying them basic access to care, then what will they do with regular people without a special claim for benefits when they get the chance?
The Obama regime hates this story because it shows the ugly reality of government-run health care. The government is not in the business of running the health care system and this is what happens when they do. Brace yourselves, Obamacare will make everything worse.
