Silver, you simply casually brushed aside something from a non-biased source (Snopes) saying "people make mistakes" and then link to a political op-ed piece from a website that doesn't even pretend at non-bias. I read through it, including the first four paragraphs and last three paragraphs that were nothing but blatant propaganda. (For those that want to just cut to the chase, skip to the 5th paragraph.)
I honestly don't know enough about the proposal. It sounds to me like Romney proposed replacing VA care with vouchers for private care, which sounds like what they're already doing with housing. Honestly, I could dig that on my end, since my own VA is an hour drive each way, having a private option would allow me to get health care more locally. But, I would have to find more about it.
