Isn't this the same thing we offer Millions of our nations VETERANS? if it's good enough for them WHY NOT impliment the system to all
The military health care isn't that great.
I woke up one morning unable to move without feeling extreme pain. It took me an hour to get out of bed and put on a pair of shorts and a tshirt. I
then called to get seen by a doctor and they told me I would have to wait 6 hours to see him and my best option would be to go to the emergency
It took another 15 minutes for my wife to help me down the stairs and into the car and another 15 minutes to drive 5 miles. She kept having to stop
because the bumps in the road just about made me pass out.
We get to the emergency room and I waited 4 hours before I was shown to a room and another hour to have the doctor see me. I was then told I had to
have x rays, which took another hour and once I was back in the room I was given a neck brace, shot of valium and a prescription for ranger candy
So if you want our health care then you can have it. Just expect to be dissapointed and remember one thing.
The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.
