VA SECRETARY IN HOT WATER: Wants VA Hospitals To Be More Like Disney…#WaitTimesMatter [Video]

Don’t you just love how out of touch these government employees are? It’s like they live in a Washington bubble and never leave:

“This is not make-believe, Mr. Secretary. Veterans have died waiting in those lines.”

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 go 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.”
