From USA Today:
The Department of Veterans Affairs has allowed its hospitals across the country to hire health care providers with revoked medical licenses for at least 15 years in violation of federal law, a USA TODAY investigation found.
The VA issued national guidelines in 2002 giving local hospitals discretion to hire clinicians after “prior consideration of all relevant facts surrounding” any revocations and as long as they still had a license in one state.
But a federal law passed in 1999 bars the VA from employing any health care worker whose license has been yanked by any state.
And Democrats want Americans to turn over their healthcare needs to the government … ummm NO.
And now, a sneak peak of the amazing healthcare you get when the government is in charge of it. https://t.co/oDcx6zt6Qi

Ok, and parody account or not – this is definitely something Sarah Sanders would say.
*she got us, darn it*
Repeal Obamacare now.
All of it.
Sorry not sorry, Obama.
I'm a veteran and I have had at least 10 primary doctors since I enrolled with the VA's https://t.co/1dzijbYEcn. The system is so convoluted the docs and care providers run into deadends often and my healthcare suffers from the delays and redtape. The Choice program adds layers.

Yay big gov!
@RepCurbelo I first asked in July if I could go to the civilian hospital .5 miles from my house for my chronic ulcerative colitis and I have still not been authorized. I am forced to drive to the nearest gastroenterologist, 77 miles away. @DeptVetAffairs @GOP

They can’t, but that doesn’t stop them from wanting to completely take over healthcare and force Americans on single payer.
No one ever accused these people of being overly bright, or compassionate.
