During a recent townhall, queen socialist AOC (D-NY) went all in supporting the Department of Veteran Affairs, arguing “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” and that she would prefer “VA for all” as an obvious blueprint for her beloved “Medicare for all.” Veterans were quick to retaliate, calling Ocasio-Cortez’s VA defense everything from “ironic” to Don Quixotic. One veteran blasted, “Ocasio-Cortez is upset with the notion of VA reform and … is so fixated on socialism that she has developed a reflexive nature against anything that says ‘privatized’.” Of course, if the VA’s poor health standards are AOC’s idea of universal care, we expect no one will be buying it.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s fierce defense of the Department of Veteran Affairs, saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” has earned her flak from the very people who are served by the scandal-ridden agency: veterans.
During the same town hall, she said VA would be a blueprint if “Medicare for all” were to pass: “If you ask me, I would like VA for all.”
Eli Crane, a former Navy SEAL who now runs the company he started from his garage while on active duty, told the Washington Examiner that the New York Democrat’s comments about not fixing the VA were ironic, given that Ocasio-Cortez, who identifies as a democratic socialist, “is trying to fix the world’s greatest economy of all time.”
