If government can’t run healthcare for the people that did something to actually earn the privilege of free healthcare, on a much smaller scale than what they really want to be doing, and is having all these problems, how well do you think they will do running a behemoth like Obamacare? From the article:
The processing time for disability claims at the Department of Veterans Affairs worsened in a majority its regional offices last year, and the VA has struggled with its much-anticipated plan to correct its problems, according to two recent audits and a review of department data. The result for veterans is longer waits – often for disability decisions that are incorrect.
The declining performance came in a year the VA was working to boost its performance, hoping to meet long-standing department goals to decide veterans’ claims faster and more accurately. Office by office, the department is switching to a new processing system designed to eliminate paper records, curtail pointless shuffling of files and speed decision-making. The VA plans to move all offices to the new system by the end of the year.
In recent months, however, performance has been slipping. Beyond that, two recent audits call into question the VA’s ability to transform the department as planned. The department’s inspector general, in a report dated last week, said it was too early to know whether the new system would help the VA reached its goals.
I can’t say I am surprised. This is why the “good enough for government work” line exists.. Unfortunately the left wants to foist this all on us because they think profits is a dirty word and they are control freaks. They would rather have horrible healthcare, rationed and controlled by faceless petty bureaucrats with delusions of grandeur, and needless suffering and pain, not to mention deaths, than let someone make a profit. How sad and stupid that irrational envy can drive people to cut off their nose to spite their face.
If we can not have government do healthcare right, on a micro scale, for people that actually have earend it, how do we expect them to do it when they want everyone in a nation of some 300 million plus to have to funnel through them to get it, huh? Good luck with that. At least I hope I will always be able to afford my own private healthcare, and like the politicians, avoid the very horrible system they have condemned everyone else to. Bad tetth and death pannels for all!
