Government Health Care

The headline is unfair, but it is the sort of ridiculous ad hominem argument that was used against a position I was advocating at a hearing last week, so I thought I would try it.

But, to a more serious point, these mistakes evidently made at VA hospitals are inexcusable. Equipment that was not properly sterilized was used in colonoscopies performed on thousands of American veterans. So far, at least 16 now have hepatitis -- and one has tested positive for HIV.

This is no mere medical mistake. If there is not a law that would put those responsible for this in prison, there ought to be.
