V.A. In Their Crosshairs

The Washington Monthly:
"Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) noted that Sharron Angle has raised the specter of privatizing the Veterans' Administration.
Rush Limbaugh loves the idea, and has no idea what Reid would consider that criticism.
'What is wrong with privatizing the VA? What's wrong with privatizing? Somebody tell me where it's working!'
This is the second time I've heard this from the far-right recently. Just a couple of weeks ago, extremist Senate candidate Ken Buck (R) of Colorado made a similar case:
'Would a Veterans Administration hospital that is run by the private sector be better run then by the public sector? In my view, yes.'
I'm not sure why the right decided to launch this anti-VA nonsense, but so long as conservatives are pushing this line, it's worth setting the record straight."
