My sister worked at the VA and my grandfather uses the VA system in Florida, the VA healthcare is notoriously terrible. It has improved but there have been movies and national movements to try to improve the healthcare of our vets. The way that the government tries to improve the VA by throwing money at the situation by buying the most expensive state of the art wheelchairs and prosthetics but can't maintain quality doctors or surgeons.
To recap from the conversation during my shitty commute:
1. "Obamacare" was created and piloted in the Socialist Commonwealth of Massachusetts by GASP! a Republican -- Romney.
2. I have a job that pays decent, but I lose money on the commute, and a shitload of taxes as a contractor.
3. As a contractor, I'm not covered by the company's subsizised health care, so I have to have MassHealth to cover my family.
4. S-T-PPPPPPPPPPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE in the shower
