Just giving them a uniform with a TSA badge doesn't make them any better or worse at airport security.
    Then you must be right. If all they did was change clothes over night. Sounds like a scam to me.

    The biggest difference that the TSA taking over made was in budget for infrastructure improvements (and training). I can attest first hand to what the local airport had in place before compared to after (although I wouldn't in a public forum like this due to not wanting to mess with my TSA credentials ). Ironically, that's the double-edged sword of the feds getting involved in something. On the one hand, they certainly throw money at most things they do. On the other hand, they certainly throw money at most things they do.

    According to who? As is commented in my previous post the VA system was a tragedy. However I have very personal experience with the oncology department of the VA Hospital in Gainesville Fl. The VA has excellent service now as apposed to 20 years ago.
    We already have socialized medicine today. It called emergency service which is much more expensive. Preventive Care, Pre-natal care, Universal inoculation.
    These things can bring down the cost and frequency of health care.
