Alexandria Ocasio Cortez declared during a town hall event recently that the Department of Veterans Affairs “isn’t broken” and is actually “some of the highest quality” care.
All I can think of is that classic refrain that my parents always taught me growing up, is that: ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,’” she said in New York, as part of her argument against privatizing aspects of the scandal-scarred agency’s work.
That is the opening approach we have seen when it comes to privatization, it’s the idea that this thing that isn’t broken, this thing that provides some of the highest quality care to our veterans somehow needs to be fixed, optimized, tinkered with until we don’t even recognize it anymore,”Alexandria Ocasio Cortez
I am sure a lot of veterans who wait months and months for treatment and surgeries would disagree! Donald Trump has already started to clean up the VA, allowing veterans to choose a doctor of their own choice if the wait is too long, but there is still a lot of work to be done.
Once again AOC is clueless. This time her whacky idea is anti-veteran because anyone with a clue knows the VA is not perfect.
