Three Cheers for Government Health Care!

From Blackfive: VA Dental Clinic Exposed Veterans to HIV?:
Wow, this is scary:
A Missouri VA hospital is under fire because it may have exposed more
than 1,800 veterans to life-threatening diseases such as hepatitis and
John Cochran VA Medical Center in St. Louis has recently
mailed letters to 1,812 veterans telling them they could contract
hepatitis B, hepatitis C and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) after
visiting the medical center for dental work, said Rep. Russ Carnahan.
Carnahan said Tuesday he is calling for a investigation into the
issue and has sent a letter to President Obama about it.
I know folks who have had great experiences with the VA. I also know folks who have had good experiences dealing the the ATFE, the DMV, the IRS, and going through airport security checkpoints, too.

Doesn't mean I think the government is an outstanding business model.
