I think we are getting lost in the weeds here Mike. The civilian health care system that I, The President, all government employees & members of Congress have is not Socialist in it's operation.( It is run by private industry like Blue Cross) What is Socialist is it universal availability & affordablity to all government employees.
What Obama proposes is the same system.....simply universal ACCESS to private insurance companies on an affordable basis.
No one is looking to set up a government bureaucracy to compete with Blue Cross....We just want access to it.
As fr as the quality of military health care vs GI civilian, I have no knowledge or opinion of it, but that has no relevance to this discussion.
