Veterans Affairs - One Resignation - 100 More To Go

Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki resigned because of the Veterans Affairs Scandal.   Obama should have publicly FIRED him; but given Shinseki's military service to our country allowing him to call it a resignation was probably appropriate.  However, more heads need to roll.  Certainly, the top 100 high level managers and maybe more need to be FIRED.   And, anyone who actually ordered or participated in "cooking the books" illegally reporting numbers to meet metrics to steal bonus money from the American taxpayers should not only be FIRED, they should be prosecuted and sent to jail. 

This Blogger continues to assert that Socialists will lie, cheat, steal, extort, borrow and history teaches us even murder to stay in power feeding at the trough.  The Veterans Affairs Department medical system is Socialized Medicine at its worst.  It is another example of a failed big government Socialist Scheme gone wrong.  The intentions are always good when these Schemes are concocted.  But, they always go wrong once the bureaucracy gains control with public employee union members working in a monopoly.  It quickly becomes all about them instead of the American taxpayer, or in this case VETS that had no other alternative than to use the government system.   What we are seeing in the Veterans Affairs Scandal is rationed medical care and death panels that resulted from simply ignoring patients who needed care.   Well dah!

Two questions remain in the Veterans Affairs Scandal.  First, what are they going to do to solve the problem.  The answer is simple.  Whenever there is a back log, those VETS should be given private insurance, paid for by the government and allowed to go where ever they want.   Second, who is going to go to jail for "cooking the books".   The private insurance solution should be easy to implement; but don't count on anyone going to jail.  Socialists always, always protect their own.  We may see some suspensions and shuffling some of these bureaucrats around; but the odds of any of the culprits going to jail is about the same as hell freezing over.   Oh wait a minute, we have global warming and climate change so maybe hell will freeze over.  Let's hope so related to the Veterans Affairs Scandal.
