CMR wrong about VA; Pakootas can help

The VA is evil and needs to be replaced. That is what our current congresswoman complains about in every email or letter I get from her. But she is just plain wrong. I have been served so well by the staff at the VA Hospital in Spokane, I could not ask for better care or nicer people.

Yes, there are some higher up administrative problems, but privatizing the VA is not an answer to the specialized care so many vets need.

I’m urging you to get out and vote for Joe Pakootas. He is the real thing, folks. He cares deeply about helping to change this world we live in. It is time for a change.
