Maverick said, "Now let's get to firing those in the House who refuse
to fund the VA. Chaffetz and Bishop, I'm looking right at you!" Bald
faced lie! Since 9/11, the VA budget has increased by 235%. The problem
isn't money, its inept LEADERSHIP and everyone with a brain knows it!
The last paragraph in my last post was incomplete. Here is the complete
paragraph:==========This VA scandal has shed some much
needed light on the problems of government run, single-payer healthcare that our
friends on the Left are longing for. The nightmares at the VA with ridiculously
long waiting times for life saving surgical procedures, appointments, and other
healthcare essentials, are a microcosm of what Obamacare and single-payer
healthcare will be in our future. The VA Scandal is Obamacare in a nutshell.
This is truly scary stuff!
Good!Now let's get to firing those in the House who refuse to
fund the VA. Chaffetz and Bishop, I'm looking right at you!
Yet another scandal that Dear Leader knew nothing about. And yet Obama had the
nerve to castigate the BP Oil Executive for the same excuse. As was
predicted, the media has dutifully neglected to report that the outgoing Bush
Administration warned Obama's transition team of the problems in the VA
back in 2008, yet Obama claims he knew nothing of this until hearing about it in
the news (the way he's heard about every other scandal in his
administration). But, for a man who loathes the military as Obama does, does
this really surprise anyone? Of course it doesn't. Remember, Obama is the
same Leftist who proposed that military veterans pay for their treatment of
service-related injuries with private insurance. Interestingly, he has never
stated such notions for illegals, or others who exist on the government dole.

This has been broken for decades. Obama did not break it. Lil' Bush did
not break it. Clinton did not break it. Old Bush did not break it. It has
been chronically underfunded and left to operate like a 50s style hospital for
decades. If you want to blame someone, blame every nationally elected official
since WW2. And it is not going to get fixed in a week or a month. It is fouled
up beyond all recognition and must be redesigned from the foundation up. And
that cannot be accomplished in a short time frame. All of the commentary
blaming Obama is mere partisanship and not valid.
GaryO,Dems, especially those George Soros employees in the US
Congress, WH, and SCOTUS, have demonstrated again and again that they have
NOTHING good to offer this nation. For example - Obamacare, Dudd-Frank, the
How many more disasters do we have to go through before we will admit to
ourselves the government is incapable of running our healthcare? How many more
will have to suffer? How many more will have to die before we will accept the
truth? Privatize it, period!
If Obama was smart he would call mitt Romney and ask him to run the VA and to
help fix it and make it grand. Romney is a proven fixer and would do a great
job and Obama would get the credit for accomplishing something finally. A
As the son of a disabled veteran Army officer, myself a disabled veteran Air
Force officer and the father of a disabled Army medic wounded in Iraq, I can
firmly state my belief that the VA has been fouled up beyond all recognition for
decades. I also can tell you that no Republican nationally elected official nor
any nationally elected Democrat have ever been filmed or otherwise recorded
requesting an increase of any dramatic extent for the VA system. None of them.
Ever. On a somewhat related topic: I have a question for the LDS world out in
Utah. Does anyone know of any vets with a service dog who have been admitted to
meeting with their trained service dog? I asked our local leadership if I might
use mine and was told no. It is unbelievable that this is the policy of the

rather have "Koch bros. employees" than George Soros employees or
employees funded by leftist billionaires and millionairies who spend far more
money than the PUNY amount spent by the libertarian Koch brothers.

This is not enough. He is only the tip of the iceberg. Many more people need to
go, including some from the White House.
