Elizabeth Edwards says she and McCain have one thing in common

Neither one of us would be covered by his health policy.”

True enough. An insurer operating in a free market (the approach favored by McCain) would be crazy to insure someone with a history of cancer (like McCain and Edwards).

I’m not sure what government agency pays McCain’s medical bills. As near as I can tell , it must be one of three socialist programs: Medicare (because he’s old enough), federal employees (because he’s a senator). Or–horror of horrors–the Veterans Administration, the federal health care system that not only guarantees eligibility and offers nearly free health care to its beneficiaries, a system that actually owns hospitals and employes doctors, a system that is obviously one slippery step from a Stalinist Totalitarian State.

I pray to God, McCain has never accepted help from the VA.

I fear he has.
