It's getting hard to keep track of all the times Malkin is wrong on a story and now she adds to her pile. She writes: Newsflash: Government-run health care sucks...

Did she miss the memo from C&L: BREAKING: Did Privatization at Walter Reed Put Troops at Risk?

The memorandum “describes how the Army’s decision to privatize support services at Walter Reed Army Medical Center was causing an exodus of ‘highly skilled and experienced personnel,’” the committee’s letter states. “According to multiple sources, the decision to privatize support services at Walter Reed led to a precipitous drop in support personnel at Walter Reed.”

The letter said the Defense Department “systemically” tried to replace federal workers at Walter Reed with private companies for facilities management, patient care and guard duty – a process that began in 2000.

She probably needs to read this piece which explains that government can run health-care effectively. "The Best Care Anywhere "

This pathetic attempt to use the suffering of our troops to attack health care for all of us seems to be the only response Malkin has on the hearings so far that has America riveted today. Nice job in supporting the troops.

Update: And to think she just won the Accuracy in Media award at CPAC

As Tim says : "People who use our present circumstances to argue that government can’t manage its way out of a paper bag are either fooling you or fooling themselves."

The Right's Field: Veterans At CPAC : Worst of all, posts like Malkin’s and statements like Mowbray’s make wounded veterans into trinkets to be displayed by rightwing bloggers to prove their case.

Can you help us out?
