Will the Affordable Care Act,, government controlled healthcare, follow in the foot steps of the debacle of the VA?
As the US Federal Government now controls healthcare in the US can we anticipate similar treatment to that received by veterans from the government controlled Veterans Administration healthcare system?
Closing Statement from Charles Hunsinger
Very little was accomplished. Those you see government as an omnipotent benefactor insist that healthcare is simply another benefit supported by taxation and a Right. Those who see government confined by the US Constitution understand that government has no role in healthcare and for government to take such a role is to operate in an unconstitutional manner.
Government is, by its very nature, a bureaucratic functionalism voided of specific objectives that are required to provide the incentive necessary to achieve a desired result. That a union mind set of accepted mediocrity also permeates government run healthcare contributing greatly to the ineffectiveness, lowered operating standards of a government run agency.
Healthcare, education, employment and housing are not Rights contained within the US Constitution. To assert that such things are a Right is to promote a concept of government that would be more inline with Marxist Socialism.
