VA Secretary Condescendingly Compares Vets Medical Visit Wait Times To A Trip To Disney World
It is almost unconscionable that anyone let alone a public official would make such a crude and thoughtless remark, and one can’t help but wonder if Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald’s remarks were screened before making such an inflammatory comparison to the length of time veterans wait to receive health care at the VA to the length of time people wait for rides at Disneyland…yes “Disneyland!”
Patriots have died waiting on long and at time phony lists created by corrupt VA staff, with the hope of seeing a doctor, and this character compares vets (some with terminal illnesses), to waiting on-line at a theme park.
"When you got to Disney, do they measure the number of hours you wait in line? Or what's important? What's important is, what's your satisfaction with the experience?" McDonald said Monday during a Christian Science Monitor breakfast with reporters. "And what I would like to move to, eventually, is that kind of measure."
The VA secretary said most veterans report being satisfied with their care and argued that the average wait time for a veteran seeking VA treatment is only a matter of days.
He said he did not believe a measure called the "create date," which gauges a veteran's wait time by counting from the day the veteran first requests care, was a "valid measure" of a veteran's VA experience.
“UNBLEAVIABLE” and no doubt that’s how this administration views those who have worn the uniform, with utter contempt for their sacrifice!
