    Many doctors and surgeons within a European social healthcare program are privately employed too - or are allowed to work part-and-part within their public and private contracts.

    By this definition - there are no socialised healthcare systems in Europe then.

    You would find it near impossible to find a healthcare system in Europe anymore in which ALL employees are govt paid.

    None, they have to purchase thier own care for the most part as workman's comp does not apply, Though most all of them are VA eligible due to thier prior service.

    wow, how anyone can even defend this move is mind blowing.

    You send these guys to war, and when they get hurt, you want them to pay for it?

    Why don't you just make them buy their own guns, ammo, armor, and radios while you are at it.

    Why not charge then a fee to ride on the c130s.

    How the left could hate the people protecting them .. i just don't understand

    What he wants, and what he can get passed is completely different. But both show the direction he wants to send our country.

    Just another partisan rant without any substance. The conclusions you draw are so ridiculous, I can't stop laughing.

    OMG, the LEFT hates our nation's veterans! The LEFT hates our nation's veterans!

    The head of the Senate Veterans Affairs committee, Daniel Akaka, D-Hawaii, said Tuesday his committee would "not advance any such legislation."

    His counterpart in the House, Bob Filner, D-California, said his committee wouldn't take up the proposal either. In a statement released by his office, Filner said the idea is "DOA" and said the budget "cannot be balanced on the backs (or legs, or kidneys, or hearts) of our nation's combat-wounded heroes."

    Editor's Correction:
    OMG, virtually the entire LEFT hates our nation's veterans and active military! Virtually the entire LEFT hates our nation's veterans and active military! Intel and police included.

    Not exactly breaking news, but always worth pointing out.

    All you need to do is tell me how I am wrong.
    But you won't.
    Because you know you cannot.

    Given that, the position stands, all of your "nuh-us" not witstanding.
