From the guys at PowerLine:
DOWN MEMORY LANE – REMEMBER WHEN LIBERALS SAID THE VA WAS PROOF THAT SOCIALISM WORKS?
At the Wall Street Journal, James Taranto pulls together liberals’ endorsements of Veterans Administration health care. It goes beyond just claiming that VA medicine was top notch; liberals often claimed that the supposed success of the VA is proof that government is superior to the private sector. Taranto titles his post “Socialist Supermodel.” You should read it all, but here are a few highlights:n January 2006, … former Enron adviser Paul Krugman wrote this:
I know about a health care system that has been highly successful in containing costs, yet provides excellent care. And the story of this system’s success provides a helpful corrective to anti-government ideology. For the government doesn’t just pay the bills in this system–it runs the hospitals and clinics.
(note: Paul Krugman is still the provacateur of leftist economics today starring at the New York Times.)
