VA Official Downplays Healthcare Crisis… Compares Wait Times To Disneyland

The secretary of the Veteran’s Administration showed what is truly wrong with the organization when he made light of the fact that many thousands of veterans have died while waiting for proper care.

VA Secretary Bob McDonald recently sat down with reporters at an event hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. According to Breitbart, McDonald tried to downplay the dire situation that many of America’s veterans are facing at VA hospitals, including incredibly long wait times for treatment.

“To me personally, the day to an appointment is really not what we should be measuring,” McDonald said. “What we should be measuring is the veteran’s satisfaction. When you go to Disneyland, do they measure the number of hours you wait in line or what’s important?” McDonald asked. “What’s important is, what’s your satisfaction with the experience.”

Unfortunately there are too many veterans who are no longer here with us because of the egregious mismanagement of the VA system. They would most likely disagree with McDonald’s disturbing statements. All veterans deserve to be treated in a timely manner. Not one single person should die while waiting treatment. 

The veterans deserve far better than who they have running their healthcare system! Do you agree?
