The Shape of Things to Come: VA Healthcare for Everyone

Just a matter of months ago, Democrats were pointing to the VHA as the poster child for government-run healthcare. Now it looks like the harbinger of a Single-Payer nightmare of healthcare rationing and death panels that Democrats still want to foist on America.  The Obama administration has now put through a regulation that will prop up Obamacare for another year or two by paying insurance companies under the table with taxpayer funds to keep premiums and deductables from rising.  Once the 2014 (and possibly 2016) elections are over, the rates will go through the roof and Obamacare will be fully entrenched and irreversible.  If the Republicans gain power in the meantime, Dems can blame all of the misery on them.
