I'm sad this is occurring at all. I wish we had a first world health system like the other industrialized nations. But sadly we do not.

1000% agree. Too much money to be made from lobbyists clearly.

Try getting care in Germany. Pretty bad experience in Stuttgart, a place with a large US military population. Big part of the reason we came back to SGF. These stories aside, my experience at Mercy and the VA clinic in SGF has been a relative joy vs. Germany. And their system is not single payer, either. Lots of cash for services, much more than here, as well as private insurance and hospital horror stories.

Not my experience at all when using non-mil health systems in the EU (or Japan). Maybe they just like Navy guy's better?
