Friday, amid growing scandal, Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki announced that he had accepted the resignation of Undersecretary for Health Robert Petzel. (Petzel had already announced his upcoming retirement.)

Whistleblowers allege that as many as 40 veterans may have died while waiting for treatment at the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care system. Why does that make us wary of any sort of government-controlled health care system?

Well, we can agree it’s a terrible piece of legislation.
