Wal-Mart Calling for Socialized Medicine?

Hard to tell, since the statement their executives apparently agreed to is meaningless pap, but the presence of the Center for American Progress and some ardently left-wing labor unions at an event calling for universal access to health coverage hardly makes it sound like a call for more health savings accounts.

The statement on the Wal-Mart website plays down the socialism angle without actually ruling it out, but this AP story seems to play it up.

Should future Americans be forced to wait six months for life-saving operations because Wal-Mart wanted a jot of good publicity?

Socialized medicine systems offer COVERAGE, not CARE.

Which means, when they kill you, the bill comes in the form of taxes rather than an invoice.

How sweet.
