Letters to the Editor

Typical government failure

Joe Dodd's letter comparing the Veterans Affairs health care scandal and Obamacare was spot on.

My brother, a retired Air Force veteran, says the medical care at base hospitals that he and his family utilized was superb. At the VA, how-ever, it's a different story. Instead of being run by the military they are run by the government bureaucrats, and as Dodd correctly pointed out, the government can't run anything without losing money.

Why would anyone think Obamacare will be any different than the VA, the Post Office, Social Security, Medicare, etc.? Politics aside, it simply won't work and the taxpayers will end up shouldering yet another huge financial burden.
