Another Broken Promise?

My bandmate Jim, a Viet Nam vet and avowed socialist (yes I know, strange, since we were fighting against socialists), is going to be pissed. He voted for Obama, mainly because Obama swore he would preserve government health care for vets. Well, it looks like Obama is faltering on yet campaign promise. He is planning to shift the coverage from government entities to insurance companies, making it the responsibility of the injured soldier to pay the bill. So, I ask, since this is similar to McCain’s plan while campaigning, and McCain was called a tool of the insurance industry, does this new broken promise make Obama a tool of the insurance industry.
