Lawyer, analyst, and author Phyllis Schlafly writes in Breitbart.com, the U.S. Veterans Administration (VA) giving inferior and delayed care is a vision of our Obamacare future. Schlafly says, “Both the VA and Obamacare suffer the endemic problems of a government-run single-payer system (a.k.a. socialism) – no choice of doctors or hospitals, no insurance companies, broken promises, lengthy waits and bureaucratic cover-ups.”
Schlafly’s Breitbart report Tuesday also points out that prior to Barack Obama’s election, “[W]e were assured by experts writing in the mainstream media that the VA was a U.S. health care leader and a model for the country.” Schlafly bolsters her anti-Obamacare arguments by adding, “We hear that some VA employees maintained secret lists and falsified data in order to conceal the wait times and hide the long delays veterans faced before seeing doctors.”
The Breitbart account additionally cites findings by Openthebooks.com who says that 12,549 bonuses equaling $8.8 million have been paid rewarding VA employees at seven failing locations.
