Healthcare: Medicare, Medicaid and Veteran's Affairs.

  If you are inept enough to believe the President's so called "health care bill" will save trillions, then you shouldn't even bother reading this blog.  He misquoted the CBO by over $780bil, that's three quarters of a trillion dollars.  But whats worse is the fact that he was off by twenty years and his bill would cost $6 trillion dollars.  So we save a trillon but spend $6 trillion.  So I should basically trade in my BMW and pay an additional couple thousand dollars to buy a 1978 Honda that doesn't run.  But wait!  Back in that car's day, it was more efficient than any other car on the road so its well worth the sacrifice! 

  Here's why I'm banging my head against the desk:  How are there still over 40% of Americans saying Obama has it right with health care, create jobs and reduce the debt?  I am a failure when it comes to math, but it only equates to simple arithmetic to take 6 and minus 1.  So we spend 6 trillion, save 1 trillion and well.......  Seems to me there are 5 trillion missing?  Most 1st graders could figure that one out.  The math is botched, the White House has a bigger propaganda scheme than the Nazi Party and Rahm seems to enjoy docking in his spare time.  (look up gay docking)

 Health care isn't broken, people aren't dying in the streets.  Quite frankly the only thing that pisses me off about our current health system is Veteran's Affairs aka the VA.  I've heard numerous stories about mistreatment, lack of care, waiting periods etc.  So when you hear about Medicare cuts in a bill, the VA has already gotten the shaft.  The men and women that have served to protect us aren't going to be mentioned.  Nor are the inadequacies they receive medically that they were promised for life from the day they signed on.  Medicare and Medicaid are partially managed by the private sector, whereas the VA is a sole government entity managed and subsidized by the U.S. Govt.  And people want the Gov't to run a "public option" where the same imbeciles would decide on your health?  They can't even get it right with the hero's of this country, imagine what the average Joe would get.......
