Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s fierce defense of the Department of Veteran Affairs, saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” has earned her flak from the very people who are served by the scandal-ridden agency: veterans.
During the same town hall, she said VA would be a blueprint if “Medicare for all” were to pass: “If you ask me, I would like VA for all.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Eli Crane, a former Navy SEAL who now runs the company he started from his garage while on active duty, told the Washington Examiner that the New York Democrat’s comments about not fixing the VA were ironic, given that Ocasio-Cortez, who identifies as a democratic socialist, “is trying to fix the world’s greatest economy of all time.”
“I would love to see her tell that to the family members of veterans who died waiting for treatment from the VA. As veterans, we deserve the same rights that private citizens have to shop around and find healthcare options, doctors and providers that fit our medical needs,” said Crane.
Massive numbers of veterans pounded AOC on social media for her remarks. Below is a sampling, including a tweet from Navy SEAL Robert O’Neill, who took part in the raid that took down al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden:
Ever take your kid to work, let ‘em color and tell ‘em they’re helping? New York did. https://t.co/5axdUJ4nGv

.@AOC & every politician should have to get their healthcare from the #VA. All the healthcare issues that veterans face today…calcified bureaucracy, secret wait lists, minimal continuity of care…would be fixed in a week if they did.
In fact, let’s put it up for vote! https://t.co/YdxzHpyPvc

These are the words of a person who has never been in or spoke to anyone who has used the VA.

She is so unbelievably misinformed (or willfully) she makes me want to light my hair on fire. Couldn’t be further from the truth if she tried.

She thinks that the VA healthcare system isn’t broken? Apparently, she’s never spoken to a veteran who uses the VA.

As a disabled veteran who regularly uses the @VeteransHealth hospital, I’ve received 5000% better care by the VA outsourcing their care to private health care providers. Last time I was at a VA hospital, a lady had been waiting to be seen in the emergency room for 2 days. 2 DAYS!

If Congress wants to #ProtectTheVA, we shouldn’t starve it + then sell it off for parts, forcing vets into for-profit emergency rooms + to providers who aren’t used to working w/their unique medical needs.
We should fight to fully fund the VA + hire to fill its 49,000 vacancies. https://t.co/v25R2UNanW

The VA misdiagnosed my dad’s cancer for a full year. After he lost over 100 lbs and couldn’t keep food down, his nurse sister took him to the hospital she worked at where he was diagnosed immediately with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. YOU use the VA and give a vet your benefits.

I just spent half an hour trying to set up an appointment with the VA. Nonstop error messages and getting bounced around through different identify verification processes and setting up new logins. Confusing system names and pointless processes. Garbage. Gov is failure.

I left the Indianapolis VA hospital because I didn’t trust them with my health. My medical records contained too many errors & I wasn’t given the services I desperately needed. NEVER AGAIN GOING TO ANY VA.

With all due respect @AOC, if you want to champion anything for vets, champion cutting the red tape that we have to deal with-yes, even after the recent reductions it’s still ridiculous. I have a service record, it says I served honorably, that should be all the paperwork I need.

As the wife of a Vietnam vet I have begged him to receive medical care elsewhere. The VA provides substandard care. It is the shame if this country. Throwing money at it won’t fix it. It is broken from the inside. He is finally listening to me. The quality difference is enormous
