Krauthammer discusses how the increased wait times and poorer quality is nothing new in total government run system, where doctors are paid salaries and aren’t incentivized like they would be in a private system. He also said, when asked if Republicans want to abolish the VA, that if he were given a voucher he’d much rather go to a private hospital than the VA.
He also points out that at some point Obama must be held accountable for this, despite his acting like a bystander president:
He acts as if – and this is the same with the IRS, with the eavesdropping on the AP and all these other scandals with the Obamacare launch – as if he stumbled upon the presidency and discovered all this horrible stuff his happening.
He’s in charge of these departments. At some point you’ve got to ask where has he been and where is the competence, the elementary competence he promised when he ran in 2008?
