ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) House Speaker Paul Ryan is demanding an explanation from the Veterans Affairs secretary over his comments comparing veteran wait times at VA hospitals to wait times for rides at Disney theme parks.

Or what's important? What's important is, what's your satisfaction with the experience?" McDonald said.
