  •  It is shameful to us all as a nation (6+ / 0-)

    that this is how things are/have been in the US.  I am a Vietnam veteran who served honorably.  I am so grateful for my healthcare at the VA, though as a 30% disabled veteran - appealing, of course - I must pay $8.00 per month copay for ea Rx - and I take 24 Rx's daily - yes, 24.  The VA is socialized medicine and for that I am grateful.  A CT scan of my chest just showed a major issue - an Ascending Aortic Aneurysm (AAA).  That is scary.  Imagine, being as poor as I am and having to worry about not being able to pay for medical care for an AAA!

    My god, and we spend so much on an obscene worldwide military presence every year.  Why do not Americans understand the irony and stop all of this insanity?  No healthcare for our citizens and the most obscene, bloated and wasteful military budget in the whole world!
