    I don't know if those on here who want to privatize are veterans or not. I assume that some are and some may have had bad experiences with the VA. I'm 69 years old and was honorably discharged in 1969. Up until 2 years ago I was under the impression that the VA was the lowest form of healthcare. Since then I've seen 1st hand how Bob McDonald has turned things around. As to those on here that say the Koch bros funding the CVA and it lobbying to privatize the VA is for the betterment of us veterans I disagree. Count me as part of the 90% who love their VA care.

    Seems there a fair amount of evidence that contradicts your article

    her "popular vote win" was all California where she won by almost 4,000,000 votes
    the electorial college makes sure that all states are represented not just large population centers and large states the founders were geniuses

    That's like some who said it's Canada's fault that Hoffa won. What difference does it make if Rodham Clinton's 2.9 million more votes came from California or New York? She still got 2.9 million more votes than Trump did. But Trump did win the election and he'll be our president. But remember he was the one who claimed the election was rigged and he might not accept the results if he lost. I can just image the outrage from the Trump supporters if the situation was reversed. They would be the one's wanting the electoral process changed.

    My statement was " many"...not all, and I for one am not for completely privatizing the VA, I just think any Veteran should be able to go into any hospital and be treated at no cost, like our congress members and senators, you are free to disagree with me, but don't twist my words.

    I don't know if it's a made up number. I can only go by what I read in the article I quoted. It was the American Legion interviewer who used the 90% in the question to McDonald. I trust the American Legion to accept that 90% figure as being accurate. The American Legion, DAV, VFW, and other veterans advocates are against the privatization of the VA. I'm sorry if you guys don't like my making reference to the Koch bros funding of the CVA's lobbying efforts to privatize the VA.

    I'm not qualified to dispute your quoted articles. But I'll accept the American Legion over some for profit blogger or a year old article from USA Today

    Does that apply to those who don't "use" Obamacare also? Or is this just more hypocrisy from the left?

    The left thinks that they always speak for the majority, when in reality, they are just the ones who flap their gums the loudest.

    Do you think that Mcdonald could be just a bit biased? Just like every other Obama number, they are misleading, biased, and fraudulent.
    Nothing that comes from this administration can be trusted. They made their bed by lying and reporting fraudulent numbers, now they can sleep in it.
    They can't be trusted for anything.

    The election was rigged, and it was proven by Project Veritas and a few others. But even with the media bias and cheating by the Democrats and the Clinton camp, Trump still prevailed.
