Let the military fix it

Tyler (KETK) — The head of the VA, Shinseki, has resigned. Ok, now what?
Everyone knew this was coming, but now act three starts. We went from there is a problem, get Shinseki to getting rid of Shinseki. I am so afraid now the foot will be taken off the pedal on this investigation.
As a member of the press, I can tell you the press gets bored easily, and I hope this doesn't happen. I can almost hear the Sunday talking heads say "the president has the VA secretary's resignation and now we will get to the bottom of this."
Will we? Just like the president said we'd get to the bottom of Benghazi and the IRS scandal. How's that working out?
Deflect and deny, then "that's old news." Meanwhile, how do we fix this mess?
Today, I had a friend of mine who used to be in the Marine Corps hit me with this idea. How about letting the military handle the veteran's hospital?
If there is any example of efficiency, it's the military. I'd feel better about that than some hack getting done a political favor.
No matter what side of the isle you are on, this VA deal has to be fixed. Now, the press is starting to jump on a story like gun control again.
A kid, who was a wreck and was treated since he was eight-years-old, murders people and as always, instead of treating the root cause, mental illness, we treat the symptoms, firearms. That's a story the national media likes. That's a story they never get bored with.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
