“Shinseki’s Successor?”

From Michael Tanner’s New York Post column today about VA health care:

Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has long touted the VA system as the epitome of government-run healthcare. “Exhibit A for the advantages of government provision [of healthcare] is the veterans administration, which runs its own hospitals and clinics, and provides some of the best-quality healthcare in America at far lower cost than the private sector,” Krugman claims.

If Paul Krugman is so confident in the VA’s ability to deliver health care to veterans, then all the department needs is a talented man — like Krugman — to take over from embattled and not-so-talented Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki.
