VA health care’s Socialist paradise

By Rich Lowry


For the left, the Department of Veterans Affairs is how health care is ideally supposed to work. No insurance companies, no private doctors, no competition -- just the government and the patient.
The VA is an island of socialism in American health care. It generally provides adequate care -- to a limited universe of people and for only certain conditions -- but has long been plagued by scandal. It is perhaps the worst bureaucracy in the federal government. As with all such single-payer-type systems, the cost of the notionally free health care is in the rationing, in this case the wait times that have had desperately ill vets hung out to dry for months.
