in your headline.

3. I am still shaking with anger after that segment

They have invaded every important institution, attempted to destroy it, then loot it with the aim of making 'government' look bad so they can loot it.

This is fucking madness.

4. Since they're the "driving force" behind it,

makes me think they have saboteurs within the VA to ensure it constantly fails.

I remember at the time thinking it was very unusal that so many administrators around the country were fudging their numbers and that they were all found out at the same time.

And now we find out the Kochs were behind ratting them out AND say they were the driving force.

I'm seeing red right now.

It also makes me wonder who's sabotaging other Federal department or agencies.

5. For those who didn't see it...

as d-man says, it was about the Koch/RW drive to "privatize"
the VA medical program, and about the top 3 or 4 Repub
candidates who have come out and backed such a move.
The head of the VA, who was with Rachel, is a mild guy
but he laid it out pretty clearly how the VA is in the
vanguard of medical research, training doctors & nurses,
and is working to fix the wrongs in the system. As a vet
who goes to the VA, I couldn't be happier with
the care I get in West LA. I hope the Koch Bros and
anybody who is for this cold-blooded proposal gets real
warm in hell.

6. Good interview w/VA Secretary.

I was afraid he might lean toward privatization since he had been a CEO, but *seems* to support the VA as it is and is working to improve it.

My own VA care has always been top notch.

Fuck a bunch of Kochpublicans.
