Being a veteran and having military insurance, I am proud that the rest of the country will be getting on board with government-controlled health care.

The Veterans Administration has large numbers of overworked doctors, nurses and administrators who are all trapped by the red tape the federal government puts in the way of proper medical care.

I hope that all Americans, and mostly the people who voted for Barack Obama, like what they will be getting — waiting six months to get an appointment with a doctor, and months later if he wants you to have tests, and waiting six months for the tests and still waiting for the results.

Good luck, America.
