Koch's "Wet Dream" View for America: Privatize It All — Even the VA

Washington Post Coverage

Koch-funded "Shadow Group" Behind the Move
(Concerned Veterans for America - CVA)

Palin Supports the Idea
(so, it must be a good deal, right)

The idea of privatizing the VA has been brewing for some time in GOP-conservative circles - watch this short clip and see for yourself.


This background here from Koch facts. It makes a good reference, so keep it handy with a bookmark - I have.

In all honesty, what the hell is it with the Koch brothers about buying and owning America? What a huge ego trip those two are on ... very disturbing and now a move on the VA.

Yes, the VA has issues, but those are leadership issues and supervision problems not medical problems per se ... overall Vet care is good, quite good in many places in fact. Just ask the Vets. Just don't ask FOX, Talk Radio, Palin, or the Koch brothers... you won't like their answers.

As retired Marine (VN-era infantry NCO and officer) I can say without hesitation, privatizing the VA wold be a huge huge mistake for a thousand reasons. Again, just ask the Vets like here and here.
