‘The View’s’ Meghan McCain rips Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for uneducated remarks on the state of the VA: Vets have ‘literally died’

"The View" co-host Meghan McCain hit out at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) Monday after the Democratic lawmaker said that the Department of Veterans Affairs "provides the highest quality care to our veterans" and added that, if the program "ain't broke, don't fix it."
Ocasio-Cortez made the remarks during a town hall event in New York City last week.
"The idea that this thing that isn't broken, this thing that provides the highest quality care to our veterans somehow needs to be fixed, optimized, tinkered with until you don't even recognize it anymore," Ocasio-Cortez said. "Here's the thing, they are trying to fix it, but who are they trying to fix it for is the question we've got to ask.
"They're trying to fix the VA for pharmaceutical companies, they're trying to fix the VA for insurance corporations, and ultimately they're trying to fix the VA for a for-profit health care industry that does not put people or veterans first," she said.
"We have a responsibility to protect it, because if it is any community that deserves Cadillac first-class health care in the United States of America it is our military service members," the congresswoman added.

What did McCain say?

McCain, daughter of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), took personal exception to the congresswoman's remarks and bashed the notion on Twitter.
On Twitter, McCain wrote, "Veterans have literally died waiting to get health care treatment from the VA....died!"


Died?

Yes, died.
March 2014 report revealed that former Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki resigned over an ongoing controversy regarding vets' care.
The Department of Veterans Affairs' inspector general conducted an investigation into the department. The report revealed that veterans were being made to wait on average 115 days for a first-time appointment at a Phoenix care center. VA officials purportedly falsified records to conceal the fact that veterans had to wait so long for appointments. As a result, at least 35 vets seeking care at the Phoenix facility died before they could receive care.
Phoenix wasn't the only issue.
A May 2015 report found that even after Shinseki resigned, at least one in 36 vets had to wait 30 days on average for an appointment nationwide. A startling 232,000 veterans were forced to wait more than 60 days to be seen.
A 2018 report found that there were "critical deficiencies" at the Washington, D.C., Veterans Affairs Medical Center, including a lack of supplies,"chronic staffing shortages," "excessive vacancies in leadership positions," a "lack of consistently clean storage areas for medical supplies and equipment," and more.
The 2018 report also revealed that the medical center's issues also included "delays or postponements of procedures due to unavailable usable instruments." The report noted that in some cases, veterans had to "wait months for needed items."

  1. Hey Meghan ----
    These are our questions to Senator McCain:
    1 Why did you have your service record and POW debriefing classified FOREVER?
    2 Did you provide military secrets to North Vietnam as stated by Colonel Earl Hopper of Army Intelligence?
    3 Did you narrate 32 propaganda broadcasts for the North Vietnamese and give interviews to communist papers as is stated at www.mccainbetrayspows.com?
    4 Why have you kept your Presidential Pardon secret? Did you know that you are the only person serving in Congress with a Presidential pardon?
    5 Was Colonel Hopper accurate when he accused you of providing flight paths and altitude information to North Vietnamese gunners, to help them shoot down American planes?
    6 Are you aware that Colonel Ted Guy was in the process of preparing treason charges against you when you received your presidential pardon?
    7 Why did you work to end all POW inquires? Why are you referred to as the Manchurian Candidate by POW/MIA groups?

    McCain and the POW Cover-Up
    The “war hero” candidate buried information about POWs left behind in Vietnam.
    By Sydney Schanberg • July 1, 2010
    Eighteen months ago, TAC publisher Ron Unz discovered an astonishing account of the role the 2008 Republican presidential nominee, John McCain, had played in suppressing information about what happened to American soldiers missing in action in Vietnam. Below, we present in full Sydney Schanberg’s explosive story.
    John McCain, who has risen to political prominence on his image as a Vietnam POW war hero, has, inexplicably, worked very hard to hide from the public stunning information about American prisoners in Vietnam who, unlike him, didn’t return home. Throughout his Senate career, McCain has quietly sponsored and pushed into federal law a set of prohibitions that keep the most revealing information about these men buried as classified documents. Thus the war hero who people would logically imagine as a determined crusader for the interests of POWs and their families became instead the strange champion of hiding the evidence and closing the books.

  2. Most of the POW's in Vietnam were sent or sold to China or elsewhere to work in the mines ....there were very few if any left in Nam at the end of the war. They were sent out in chains on forced marches. All the Agent Orange over there....there are STILL parts of Nam where you can see the Agent Orange still in the land. Look on Google Earth and you will see most of the areas around cities are still BROWN and not grown back to green.
