Corrupt Medical Care

This will make you crazy. Check out the first page of the VA Hospital salaries in Phoenix, AZ, in the link below. Check the histograms (click the icon at the beginning of each salary data) to see the last several years history; here you will find where the huge funding increases for the VA went – to huge salaries. Yet we keep hearing that the VA was underfunded.  These over-paid bureaucratic officials clearly don’t care at all about those they’re paid to serve–and they can’t be fired.  This is the corruption of unfettered government. Now, because of funding pressure, the active military is preparing to close/reduce most of their on-base hospitals to just large clinics. And it appears that the Obamacare mandate/regulations of law make it likely many hospitals around our country will close; further, we see and hear stories of doctors fleeing private practice because the law makes many fields of practice unprofitable (I know of some). So, where is all this going? It appears that there will continue to be huge salaries for a corrupt government/union-controlled medical system which will reduce services to all citizens—including our military. If you disagree, what do you think will suddenly make these bureaucrats responsive to us.
