Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez established she can hit new lows of ignorance by praising the VA as the highest form of healthcare to veterans. As almost every single American alive knows the VA is an absolute mess and horribly ran. This is not a partisan issue, but is recognized on both sides of the isle by politicians and media.
Ocasio-Cortez stated, “The idea that this thing that isn’t broken, this thing that provides the highest quality care to our veterans somehow needs to be fixed, optimized, tinkered with until you don’t even recognize it anymore. Here’s the thing, they are trying to fix it, but who are they trying to fix it for is the question we’ve got to ask. They’re trying to fix the VA for pharmaceutical companies, they’re trying to fix the VA for insurance corporations, and ultimately they’re trying to fix the VA for a for-profit healthcare industry that does not put people or veterans first.”
Ocasio-Cortez continued, “We have a responsibility to protect it, because if it is any community that deserves Cadillac first-class healthcare in the United States of America it is our military service members.”
