    "Barack Obama is lying to voters.  It’s a bald faced lie because John McCain will improve the tax code so that middle class paychecks aren’t used to pay government bureaucrats but instead will pay for the access to health care Americans deserve.  Barack Obama, the most liberal member of the U.S. Senate, has a different plan: higher taxes, a trillion dollars in new spending, and a radical turn toward government-run health care that promises to be as efficient as a trip to the DMV." —Tucker Bounds, spokesman McCain-Palin

    The ol' boy network? In the McCain campaign, that's called a staff meeting.

    •  Actually, Where I Live In VA, A Trip To The DMV (0+ / 0-)

      is fairly quick and painless. And such a trip is only necessary now when I need to renew (the photo on) my driver's license--as everything else can be done online.

      In regards to healthcare, I'm in my 30th year of receiving good care for myself and my family from my HMO under the FEHB (Federal Employees Health Benefits) program. I came to the conclusion about 25 years ago that FEHB coverage should be expanded, starting with covering military families. I don't hear about denials of medical service for co-workers and acquaintances who are covered under FEHB. So just consider if care providers at Walter Reed and the VA had had to meet the standards of the FEHB rather than the Pentagon hierarchy.
