Ben Shapiro: The VA Scandal Proves That Democrats’ Approach To Healthcare Doesn’t Work

Photo Credit: IJ Review The on-going V.A. scandal has outraged many people across the country, both Democrats and Republicans alike.

    Well we do need any more examples of the government
    failure. We know that the government
    cannot run anything. A few years ago the
    Federal Government took over a house of prostitution in Nevada, where it is
    legal. They took the house because the owner never paid his taxes. They tried to run the house of prostitution
    in order to get their money. The house went bankrupt in a little over a year.
    It is really sad when the government cannot run a whorehouse.

    If Obama is mad, it is only because the VA made him look bad. He could care less about the veterans or anyone else. That is what narcissist do.
