Socialized health care; some morons have argued

"We already have it in the VA, why can't everybody have it?" They don't seem to want to deal with things like this; do YOU want morons like this controlling your care?
Veterans who got colonoscopies through the Miami VA medical system are at risk of being infected with hepatitis B, hepatitis C or HIV through the procedure, according to a news release from U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek's office.

The VA on Monday afternoon contacted Meek to inform him that the medical equipment used for the procedures were not cleaned per the manufacturer's recommendations. As many as 3,260 veterans underwent the procedure between May 2004 and this month.

And anyone want to take bets as to whether anyone will be disciplined over this? In any meaningful way?

Oh, and take note of two of the comments:
And this from the country that crows about having the best medical care in the world!
Archie being one of those who don't want to deal with the fact that this kind of crap seems to be the norm with socialized health care.

And when a guy posted Why is it we only revere veterans while they are in a combat zone and so soon forget them when they come back home?, a friggin' moron who goes by Dharmadhatu replied
Woody - Nobody feels comfortable around people willing to murder other human beings for money. That's why we only care about them when they're in a combat zone.... It's also why they're there and we aren't - because we know that murder is wrong no matter whether you call it war, abortion, capital punishment or anything else!
So there we have, in all its shining glory, the mindset of the moonbats. How much you want to bet this is one of the jerkwads who thinks self-defense is wrong if you use anything other than words? And that a woman using a gun to protect herself against a rapist is just 'continuing the cycle of violence' and as morally wrong as her attacker? And probably wants the government in control of health care 'because it will be more fair', despite the examples- like this- of how well that works?

My wife works in admissions in a hospital. Whenever a patient comments on how we need national health care (usually at least a couple of times a day), she tells them that we already have a lot of government run health care programs such as the VA, MediCare and MedicAid. She then asks them if they think any of those programs are providing quality health care and why on earth would someone want to take our wonderful health care system and turn it over to the people that run those ones.

Most people at least give it some thought and a whole lot of them get a real change of heart as they consider the reality of it.

I done good when I got married...

I don't know who "Dharmadhatu" is, but I would really like to kick his ass for that statement. Sounds like a sheltered punk to me.
