    Didn’t I read somewhere that Paul Krugman was praising the VA as a model for health reform. I find that not surprising. I’m sure Krugman thinks he will be getting private care for himself.

  2. Joe S. says:

    I find the idea of paying for placebos really funny. Surely these people aren’t serious.

  3. Bruce says:

    Joe, they are serious.

  4. Vicki says:

    I saw the “60 Minutes” piece on the VA system last night and it was truly disgusting.

    I would like to know how one would judge the quality of a placebo. How would you ever know if you are being overcharged?
