I see our resident liberal doctor is trying to lay the VA problem on to the Republicans. What he didn't mention in his rant was the wasted money in bonuses given to people for not doing their job!

His idea is the true liberal answer to every problem — throw more money at it. I would say both parties are responsible because they won't allow people not doing their job. Anyone in the private sector would have been fired in the blink of an eye.

In case anyone cares, I call myself a conservative, not a Republican or Democrat. I don't believe we have a Democratic Party today; it is the Socialist Party. Even President John F. Kennedy wouldn't belong to the party today.
