WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki confirmed Tuesday that the Obama administration is considering a controversial plan to make veterans pay for treatment of service-related injuries with private insurance.
What. The. Fuck.
A true patriot, no matter what his political stripes, would have shot this down immediately. But according the VA Secy., it's still under consideration.
Another possibility exists: It's a flag thrown out to gauge public reaction to the lunacy coming from the Whitehouse. Throw enough outlandish ideas out and then the real agenda, which isn't quite so bad, looks more acceptable in comparison.
Either way, it's despicable.
