Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said President Barack Obama’s Veterans Administration scandal involving 40 veterans who reportedly died after they were put on secret waiting lists represents Obamacare’s future if Democrats are not voted out of office.
“Friends, that’s rationed care. That’s the VA today. That’s what’s got to change,” she wrote Wednesday on Facebook. “That’s why Congress has got to change because until we elect leaders who’ll buck the march to socialized medicine known as Obamacare, America’s health care system will go the way of the VA.”
