But we should do away with private health care and nationalize it into a universal "free" system because only the government can make it better.

The Oakland, California, regional office of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) stuffed 13,184 benefit requests, some dating back to the 1990s, into a file cabinet where they were discovered in 2012, partially processed and then promptly lost. The department’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) documented the sad tale (pdf) in a report published last week.

Among VA professionals in the US, the Oakland District VA is considered the absolute worst district in the country. A lot of people quit their VA jobs rather than be transferred there. It's considered a punishment assignment for some people who are transferred there. It's the shits, our government at its absolute worst.
