The talking heads of the media are mostly gleefully cheering the resignation of the Secretary of Veterans Affairs – Eric Shinseki. Veterans Administration Scandal solved, prying eyes can now move along. Yeah right and all my missing hair is going to magically reappear tonight during my sleep period. The V A Scandal is normal Government Bureaucracy tragedy at its worst. Even more tragic, this is a sign of the future of healthcare for everyone in the USA. Obamacare is and always has been babysteps towards socialized medicine. Obamacare will eventually be the V A Scandal. Long lines of people waiting to get necessary healthcare whose lives depend upon the whims of political appointees, whom get their jobs because of “good ole boy connections” not their ability to perform the job properly. Many will fall to the roadside trying to circumvent the governments red tape.
The healthcare system was/is badly in need of fixing. Babysteps towards a bureaucratic socialized medical system where – no matter who is politically in charge- is doomed to the failures that are Government Bureaucracy.
