When I think of the government in charge of our health care, I think of their success with the one true example of socialized medicine in the U.S.: The U.S. Veteran's Administration, owned, operated and financed by the federal government. :cry: :roll:

:D You mean you hope it is. Given the corrupt clowns we have in Congress, the reality may probably be closer to the VA experience than the Medicare experience.
