    I can only repeat myself from an earlier posting on this subject,
    “I’ve relied on the VA as a primary care provider for forty two years. The services delivered have been very good to excellent depending on location and veteran number fluctuations. Wait times do indeed get longer when there’s an influx of returning veterans after major military engagements. In those forty two years there seems to be a correlation between calls for vouchers and privatization schemes in response to discovery of this or that problem within the system. If memory serves, during the “good years” when major issues are not discovered and brought to light it seems the same privatization and voucher folks are the ones who also vote no on budget appropriations for the VA."

    Perhaps if rail travel were subsidised to the same level as air travel … who am I kidding? But I can dream, can’t I?

    I think being a fear mongering, douche bag, fascist, is his day job.

    In 1972 The Learning Channel was created by NASA and the Health Department as an educational channel. It was privatized. Now it shows Honey Boo Boo.
