Despite Anti-Obamacare Crusade, Ted Cruz Admits He Supports Government-Run Health Care


Think Progress has the article Despite Anti-Obamacare Crusade, Ted Cruz Admits He Supports Government-Run Health Care.

Since undergoing major reforms during the Clinton administration, the fully integrated structure of government doctors and hospitals in the Veterans Health Administration provides veterans with benefits that are the envy of the rest of the health care system. A study by the RAND Corporation found that “VA patients were more likely to receive recommended care” and “received consistently better care across the board, including screening, diagnosis, treatment and follow up.”

Cruz isn’t the only conservative to praise the program; Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, and Michele Bachmann have all endorsed the government-run system.


Now I see the Tea Party Logic, they think that the military deserves the benefit of government supported health care, but the civilian population will lose their freedom if they get it. What does this say about their feelings for our military veterans, or what does it say about their feelings for civilians like themselves?
