« The Midwestern Conservative

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi still isn't sure the VA scandal is really a scandal. Talk about parsing. She concedes that you could say every time veterans aren't served the way they deserve it's a scandal. Yes, you could. You could also call cooking the books a scandal. The reality is Democrats are terrified of this one. It touches so many lives and the only defense they've offered is the standard "it's not his fault, it was already broken."

They then suddenly realized to do that is to admit that a single-payer, government run health care system is a debacle. Nowhere to run on this one.
