“If it's not broken, don't fix it”

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DN.Y., makes headlines this week to promise the effect of the still chronic dysfunctional department of veteran issues. And at VA I mean the people -died-waiting-in-line VA. You know, who was the subject of recent national scandals involving everything from frivolous purchases to pill factories, to tens of thousands of dollars, to disease outbreaks, to get veterans to wait for doctor's appointments. Even more surprising than her praise is that it came in conjunction with her argumentation against reforming the counterfeit federal agencies. "[T] here are some things we heard today, there are some themes that we have come out, and especially when it comes to VA, all I can think of is the classic refrain from my parents always telling me that grow up. Which is it, "if it's not cracked, don't fix it," she said last week in some notable comments made during a city hall event in New York City. She continued and said, "And &#821 1; exactly , don't fix it.

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DN.Y., makes headlines this week to promise the effect of the still chronic dysfunctional department of veteran issues.

And at VA I mean the people -died-waiting-in-line VA. You know, who was the subject of recent national scandals involving everything from frivolous purchases to pill factories, to tens of thousands of dollars, to disease outbreaks, to get veterans to wait for doctor’s appointments.

Even more surprising than her praise is that it came in conjunction with her argumentation against reforming the counterfeit federal agencies.

“[T] here are some things we heard today, there are some themes that we have come out, and especially when it comes to VA, all I can think of is the classic refrain from my parents always telling me that grow up. Which is it, “if it’s not cracked, don’t fix it,” she said last week in some notable comments made during a city hall event in New York City.

She continued and said, “And &#821

1; exactly , don’t fix it. And … it is their opening direction that we have seen in terms of privatization, is the idea that this thing is not broken this thing that provides the highest quality care in some way must be optimized, tinkered with , until – until we don’t even recognize it anymore. ”

I have no idea what she is talking about with these comments. The VA is a hive of dysfunction and general mismanagement. And we’re not talking about minor written errors or wasted taxpayers dollars. We’re talking about an agency where warrior veterans died and Waiting to get the care they promised them when they joined the armed forces.

As many as 307,000 veterans died pending Veterans Affairs health care according to the 2015 VA Inspector’s General Report. Abuse and fraud were so shocking, in fact, that Congress eventually merged to do something about it, but even then, the problems persist, when the government office flagged VA as a “High Risk” agency in 2019 for its abusive activities On the contrary, VA was flagged for the same problem in both 2018 and 2017.

But try to tell it to Ocasio- Cortez, who may or may not have heard of any of this, according to her comments last week. [19659002] “And here it is, they are trying to fix it. But who are they trying to fix it for is the question we have to ask. And this is who they are trying to fix it for. They are trying to fix VA for pharmaceutical companies,” said Congress. [19659002] She added: “They are trying to fix VA for insurance companies. And they are trying to fix VA for a profit-making healthcare sector that doesn’t put people or veterans first. And then we have a responsibility to protect it, because if there is any society that deserves Cadillac, first-class care in the United States, it is our military soldiers. “

Sure. Whatever you say.
