Remember When Liberals Said the VA Was Proof that Socialism Works?

Posted on May 23, 2014 by Glenn H. Ray


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.)

Please do read further to understand barack hussein’s administration better:

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
