Tuesday letters: Government health care is suspect

September 24, 2013 

— “VA ties 6 deaths to screening delays,” shouts a headline in Saturday’s newspaper. Is anybody listening? This is what veterans get as thanks for their sacrifices? If this is how our finest get treated, what’s it going to be like when the federal government takes over health care for everyone? And don’t be fooled into thinking that’s not where we are headed. Caveat emptor.
