A few simple fixes for Obamacare|

--
The Daily Star

---- — The Obamanation administration is having a great deal of difficulty instituting its signature healthcare program. Let me offer a few quick and easy fixes. 

First, allow all adults to remain on their grandparents’ insurance policies until they reach the age of 65. When an individual turns 65, he is automatically enrolled in Medicare.

In addition, the federal government should seize all private hospitals and turn them over to the Veterans Administration. The VA does such a fine job dispensing care to our veterans that we may as well all benefit from their expertise. As a corollary to this, all doctors and nurses will have to be conscripted into the military and work at the VA hospitals. Simple solutions to the most vexing problems are my forte. Thank me very much,
