The Trumpian worldview in full effect.
Was the Maria response a failure of the president, the bureaucracy, both, or neither?
I like having the government (the VA) as a medical care fail-safe. I would never want to go to a complete government run system because our government bureaucracy is very, very bad when it comes to reviewing it's own decisions, especially when they are big ticket decisions.
I like having the government in more of the role of referee, rather than sole provider. An entity that can serve as an external appeal to contested decisions. And I don't really trust the courts to act as that, because all too often, they side with the government unless the government is being grossly egregious in their decision-making. Way more often than they side with larger corporations.
