    The whole situation with Indian Health Care and education is a nightmare.

    Get in some rural VA hospitals for further proof of "great" government run healthcare, and that's how they treat the soldiers. Remember how they had to CLOSE Walter Reed it was so disgusting, and that was under Congress' nose.

    Yes. That and Medicaid.

    The lowest paying insurance in the industry.

    How could Obamacare be any different from the government health insurance programs that already exist?

    Indian Health Care Services is underfunded, and it is run by the BIA, which is pretty much a failure as a Federal Agency.

    Obamacare, on the other hand, is patterned after Romneycare, which to all intents and purposes, is working as designed. After six years of successful implementation, everybody in Massachusetts seems to love it, including the Tea Party.

    Yes siree Bob, when it comes to big-government health care reform, Mitt Romney can be a proud man with a strong record on which to run for President.

    The Indian Health Service bears no resemblance to Obamacare.

    If you knew how either of them worked, you wouldn't be asking this question.

    No.

    For that matter, most Americans who are not wealthy have long waits, rushed doctors, and questionable care. It took me 6 weeks to see a gastroenterologist, right here, in the good ol' U.S. of A..

    As opposed to millions of American adults and child dieing from lack of any health care at all

    Sounds like something that Cons /Reps would get off on .

    Romneycare is a better indicator. Look at Massachusetts.
