I know you probably think this is a joke, but this is Barack Obama’s veteran administration secretary pulling out one of the dumbest statements I’ve ever heard cabinet member say in regards to our US military.
There’re so many veterans in in the Veterans Administration waiting for lines because of their inability to take care of America’s finest to hear something like this is inexcusable. To have a member of the president’s administration be so insensitive should at least caused this guy to be fired as soon as possible.
Most ignorant statement (so far) for 2016: VA secretary states Disney doesn't measure wait times, so why should VA? https://t.co/7Q3GAweHGF

How do you base the waiting in lines at Disney with the waiting lines of many women who were dying waiting for medical care?
From Washington Times:
Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald on Monday compared the length of time veterans wait to receive health care at the VA to the length of time people wait for rides at Disneyland, and said his agency shouldn’t use wait times as a measure of success because Disney doesn’t either.
“When you got to Disney, do they measure the number of hours you wait in line? Or what’s important? What’s important is, what’s your satisfaction with the experience?” McDonald said Monday during a Christian Science Monitor breakfast with reporters. “And what I would like to move to, eventually, is that kind of measure.”
McDonald’s comments angered House Speaker Paul Ryan, who tweeted out Monday afternoon, “This is not make-believe, Mr. Secretary. Veterans have died waiting in those lines.”
My mom keeps getting on me to go and apply for veterans benefits because of the eight years that I served in the Air Force, but I don’t want to have to deal with the red tape that comes along with the veterans administration.
What should happen to McDonald? Should he be allowed to keep his job after what he said publicly? Leave your comment below share the story on your Facebook or Twitter page.
