Socialist Bernie Sanders Doubles Down on Defense of VA Health System

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, an avowed socialist, knows the closest thing America has to socialized medicine is the VA health system.

With the VA scandal still unfolding, he knows it could impact the government’s effort to grab more control over the private health care system.

Thus, he’s doubling down his support for the VA system.

“The VA is providing by and large high quality care to veterans mostly in a timely way,” Sanders told Ed Schultz on MSNBC.

Using the words “by and large” and “mostly” aren’t exactly a ringing endorsement or enough to provide reassurances to the families of veterans, like Vita Allen, that the problem is being taken seriously.
