The Democrats are completely out of touch with Americans and comments like the one made from the campaign manager for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I., Vt.) presidential bid just further validate this fact. Sanders’ campaign manager said on Friday that veterans “like” the scandal-plagued Department of Veterans Affairs “despite some of its problems,” according to the Free Beacon.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Discussing some ways he felt Republicans could work to fix Obamacare’s problems rather than fully repeal it with the American Health Care Act, Jeff Weaver was asked by MSNBC host Katy Tur whether a true single-payer system could ever be a possibility.
“Could single-payer ever work in this country?” Tur asked.
“Absolutely,” Weaver said. “We have a number of examples. Medicare, for instance, is a single-payer program for people 65 and over … The VA is a single-payer program for people who’ve served in the military. Ask military veterans. They like the VA, despite some of its problems which could be fixed with additional funding.”
Kind in mind this is the same group of people who claim that Americans like Obamacare despite “some of its problems,” like having extremely high premiums, not being able to keep their doctors, and not being able to keep their health plan.
