The Life and Times of a Dev Yes, we're really that weird

My wife had a new baby yesterday and the baby is healthy and happy and both are doing well.  The rooms were nices and the care was adequate (bad for the mom, really good for the baby).  Now, if the government ran the hospitals (i.e. socialized medicine) how would it have been different?  We can see EXACTLY what government healthcare would be like.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of socialized medicine.  I lived in Europe for a couple of years, and it doesn't matter what government is running the program, care goes down the toilet.  Before you rant on the "Bush" government, you'll have to convince me that any government would be better.  I'm a conservative, not a Republican, and I didn't vote for Bush either. :)

LOL you do realize that walter reed support services were privatized in 2000. No offense but seriously stick to coding you are embarrassing yourself. Maybe you should get away from faux news you might learn something.

snark aside, congrats on the new baby and am glad your wife and baby are doing just fine. After all, that is more important than politics.
