From public education to public health care, the results are terrible and getting worse. So, why is anyone surprised that the Veterans Administration is letting veterans die waiting for care and then covering the facts up. That is precisely the ultimate outcome of all government run operations.
Our public schools suffer from the same problem. The teachers' unions try their best to cover up the pitiful jobs our public schools are doing as they campaign for more and more money. But, the results are there for all to see. We have the worst public education system in the developed world. Our health care will soon arrive at a similar state.
So, the VA woes should come as no surprise.
