Want to know what the “new” health care will look like once Obamacare is fully implemented? Read this. Those of you excited about the health care your new card purchased in the “exchanges” will get you may want to think hard about this. Remember the saying of my friend, Dr. Jane Orient: ”coverage doesn’t mean care.” Health “care” in Canada, with waiting lines so long that patients come to Oklahoma City for their health needs is validation of her point, as is the “care” described in this article.
It is of little consolation to the poor families of the victims of the VA medical system that “an action plan” to deal with this was considered, or that the “VA will take appropriate corrective action immediately.” Health care is far too important to leave to the bureaucrats and their doublespeak.
