My husbands nephew is in Iraq, his wife is all over myspace saying how she hates universal health care. She said it takes forever to be seen. I wasn't aware the service had a universal health care system. I know her son was hospitalized and spent several days in the hospital and care center and the state paid for it but now she is against help for others. My dad died in the veterans hospital in 1991 after Reagan cut funding for the vets care. He received excellent care as he was only one of a few men allowed a room. They built a new building but cut funds for staff.
