There’s certainly no shortage of evidence that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn’t playing with a full deck, but dammit if she’s not determined to give us more:
In the Bronx, AOC Advocates for a ‘VA for All’ https://t.co/kLk61aZkFE

The VA is a hellish nightmare that offers a glimpse into life under government-controlled health care — let’s subject all Americans to it!
Is there anyone who doesn't think the VA is rather broken lately?
"Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) recalled an adage that she said applied to the Department of Veterans Affairs: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”"https://t.co/ZWP4scwzik pic.twitter.com/8MJrQlQcnM

More from the Nation:
She said that should Medicare for All be passed, the VA would most likely remain unchanged. While many champions of universal health-care coverage are fighting to essentially abolish private health insurance while retaining the private hospital system, AOC said in an ideal world, the civilian health system would mirror what’s currently offered to veterans. “If you ask me, I would like VA for all,” she said to cheers.
Oh, you’d like that, AOC? Why don’t you go take it for a test drive? If ungodly wait times, unsanitary conditions, and substandard care are your thing, there are places you can get the full VA experience without having to be a veteran.

We hear Venezuela’s lovely this time of year.
Have you ever been treated at the VA? Have you ever been inside of a VA hospital?

Good Lord, does she know how bad the VA is?

If it’s a “Government program” she’s all for it. Doesn’t matter if it works, as long as the government can tell people what to do, it fits right in with her socialist goals.

The VA is a prime example of what will happen with the Dems desire to have healthcare for all….,

The VA is literally proof of why you don't want the government in charge of healthcare.

As a veteran who has had to use the VA over the last several years, I say until you experience it, you can’t comment on it.

Bad idea! I’m a VET, and it’s not the best thing, like ever, like ya know…

The VA is awful but an excellent model for government run healthcare – ineffective and inefficient.
