Democratic Socialist Rep Ocasio-Cortez (NY) opposes Trump letting veterans go to private doctors for care when the VA can’t see them soon enough for their treatment needs.
Describing the VA as if there was nothing wrong with its performance record, she recently told constituents in NY that, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
Rep Dr. Phil Roe (R-TN) reminded her that it was learned only a few years ago that literally hundreds of thousands of veterans died while languishing away on fake waiting lists.
(Example: September 3, 2015 CNN piece entitled, “307,000 Veterans May Have Died Awaiting Veterans Affairs Health Care, Report Says.”).
Rep Dr. Roe further spanked Rep Ocasio-Cortez by saying that, “When you don’t know anything about anything you should probably keep your mouth shut or everyone will know you don’t know anything.”
Apparently Ocasio-Cortez is to knowledge what a Klansman is to racial harmony – its enemy.
