Fox News host Sean Hannity sat down with former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans where she was asked about the unfolding scandal surrounding the Department of Veterans Affairs. Palin blasted the VA for failing veterans and said that “illegal aliens” in the United States often have access to better care than American servicemen and women.
“Is the VA a death panel for many?” Hannity asked Palin.
“That is what government-run health care will result in,” Palin replied.
Palin then states, “Isn’t it ironic that those who are willing to sacrifice all, to put their life on the line, to allow the freedom of choices in healthcare and economic decisions and everything else, our soldiers, airmen, marines — they are the ones getting screwed by the VA! And our commander-in-chief is in charge of this, ultimately.”
