Obama’s VA Bosses Blew $500 Mil on Office Furniture While Vets Died
Instead of sources with agendas, why not look at actual figures?
Check here for clickable data by state:
The #2 person was fired..........he was st to retire the end of this month anyway.
The #1 person says he's "mad as hell"......because he was exposed is really why.
The corruption is going to be in all 57 states.....the investigation will find out.
How did the VA department get so gravely understaffed and underfunded?? Hmmm...
Of course, those of us who have complained about this issue since 2003 went largely unheard on this board because everyone was busy with the freedom isnt free, we have to cut the deficit, we have to sacrifice, yadda yadda yadda, but this problem has been around longer than Gen Shinseki has been in charge of the Va.
"""Bush Administration budget cuts force more than 200,000 veterans to wait for health care. Over 200,000 United States veterans have to wait more than six months for a medical visit because of health care shortages. ("VA Health Care Funding Alert," Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States Press Release, January 31, 2003) """
"""Bush Administration proposal would end health care benefits for 173,000 veterans. More than 173,000 veterans across the country would be cut off from health care because of Bush Administration proposed budget cuts and its plan requiring enrollment fees and higher out-of-pocket costs. ("Support for Troops Questioned," Washington Post, June 17, 2003) """
You reap what you sow is the old saying.
You all supported BUSH and his cronies in the the white house and congress, and now you dont like the outcome?
You mean, you all believed that massive cutbacks to the VA system wouldnt lead to a systemic failure of the system?
Or, is this just another timebomb BUSH set to blow up after he left office, like the economy, housing, jobs and the collapse of the banks?
Of course you all will hymm and haw about bringing BUSH back into the conversation, but hey, blame yourselves.
Because of people LIKE YOU all (who voted for bush), you all condemned our veterans to this type of horrible treatment.
Sorry, but its really YOUR fault.
How quickly you all forgot about the WALTER REED hospital scandal under George Bush.
Did any of you ask BUSH to resign over this? Any of you ask for the secretary to resign over this? Any of you ask anyone in congress who cut funding for the hospital to resign over this?
You all are nothing more than political puppets controlled by a right wing propaganda machine.
Wheres the outrage?
Exactly. The problems in the VA didn't start when the Kenyan socialist Nazi got into office.
The Bush Administration Has Provided Unprecedented Support for Our Veterans
Wow! GWB says he's the bestest prez ever for veterans? He sure did add an extraordinary number of them to the disabled ranks, no arguing that.
In spite of having fewer veterans, due to WWII vets dying fast, our expenditures for veterans care has skyrocket, because of the injuries suffered in a phoney war, and people surviving injuries do to medical advances that would have killed them 20 years ago.
So Obama has been outraged since '08 ?????? And did nothing ?????
BUSH only increased funding after the disastrous conditions of Walter Reed were discovered.
Our VA system has been broken for decades. Funding and cutting of funding creates tomorrows disasters.
Its unfortunate, but its the reality of veterans healthcare.
When nothing is ever done to correct a problem........festering comes to mind........it will fester and get worse and then all hell breaks loose. Good description of Obama's reign of incompetency.
I think what youre trying to say is that BUSH for 8 years let the VA run itself into the ground, then on transition day, notify the OBAMA team of problems, then you wanted them fixed overnight, right?
Nobody has ever believed the VA was a well run machine, and with two new wars piling more veterans than could be handled into a broken system, what did you think was going to happen?
Did you forget there were two wars pumping thousands of soldiers into the VA monthly?
Of course the waiting lines are long, the IRAQ and AFGHANISTAN wars are injuring thousands of soldiers.
Something you dont want to acknowledge.
I think uncle Fester was George Bush.
Isn't it amazing how incompetent obamas supporters think he is?
It's hard to blame partisan budget cuts on problems at the VA while there is so many allegations of fraud, waste, and abuse going on there.
