02 Oct 2007 It’s Socialized Medicine, All Right, And We Don’t Want It
A blogger called knobboy has criticized the National Center’s paper, “SCHIP Expansion: Socialized Medicine on the Installment Plan,” by citing this New York Times (by Philip M. Boffey, via Firedoglake) complaint:
No one has the nerve to brand this country’s purest systems of ‘socialized medicine’ — the military and veterans hospitals — for what they are. In both systems, care is not only paid for by the government but delivered in government facilities by doctors who are government employees.
No one? What are these, potted plants?

There are plenty more examples. How much more clear can we be? We don’t want socialized medicine, including when its run by the VA.
