Re: Even Dumber

No, the administration is not giving up quite yet on its asinine idea to charge veterans’ private insurance for service-related injuries. The Washington Post, which you may recall ran an award-winning series on mistreatment and neglect at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, tells us:

An Obama administration proposal to bill veterans’ private insurance companies for treatment of combat-related injuries has prompted veterans groups to condemn the plan as unethical and powerful lawmakers on Capitol Hill to promise their opposition.

No, I don’t know what’s wrong with the brilliant Ivy League scholars who populate the Obama administration. Remember when we were told how smart they all were, how magnificent a team had been assembled? Well, apparently common sense and political survival instincts were not requirements for working in the Obama White House. Once again, we learn that “credentialed” doesn’t mean wise — or even effective.
