Advocating on Behalf of the American Military and Defense on the War on Terror

If Obamacare is so wonderful that Senator Ted Kennedy spent the last dozen years of his life working his heart out for it - why did he feel it necessary to leave Massachusetts (which has socialized medicine) and recieve brain surgery in North Carolina?

Reader Joanie G. sent this along:  an actual letter to the editor of the local newspaper in Charlotte, N.C. wondering the same thing:

“With all the publicity about national health care, perhaps a fact has
escaped the general public - that Sen. Ted Kennedy chose to use NC's
Duke University Hospital for his brain surgery.
He represents Massachusetts , which has Socialized health care. His
actions tell us that Socialized Care is not good enough for him. Thanks
Senator for illustrating this."
