The Veterans Administration, a model for Government Healthcare? Obama promised so in 2008. A Limerick.

The Veterans waiting lists grow.

Obama can no longer crow

about healthcare reform.

Wait for months is the norm

for some it is six feet below…..

Remember that Obama was going to reform VA and make it a model of health care so that when Obamacare failed he could point to the perfect system and transition everybody into “People’s Healthcare Administration”.

This is a statement from Obama in 2008:
“Make the VA a leader of national health care reform. … This includes efforts to improve electronic records interoperability, expand effectiveness research, promote wellness programs, and instill more accountability for performance and quality improvement initiatives.”
