Ross Mackenzie: Do not socialize U.S. health care

Retired Richmond Times-Dispatch editor Ross Mackenzie makes it clear in his column today that he is not impressed with Barack Obama's desire to see socialized medicine in this country.

Mr. Mackenzie, whose father was an Edinburg-educated general physician and surgeon, was not encouraged to enter the medical field because his father saw this coming:

Great column ... read it for insight from someone close to the medical field.
