Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 5/18/2014 4:00:16 AM

A growing political firestorm over allegations of treatment delays and secret wait lists at veterans hospitals nationwide will likely dominate Sunday news shows. (Snip) Other topics on the shows include the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, and sexual assault on college campuses. Here´s the lineup: CBS´ "Face the Nation" will talk with White House chief of staff Denis McDonough about the latest developments surrounding the Veteran Affairs investigation. McDonough will give the scoop on what the Obama Administration is doing to address reports of VA facilities concealing long wait times for patients.

Dick and Lynne Cheney will appear together on Fox News Sunday.

- Well here´s another fine mess of a scandal, and another one that´s got people killed. And another one that obama thinks he can ´´manage´´ rather than face up to and actually fix.
- Shinseki´s got to go. Through the years I worked for a couple especially ´´fine resume´´, ´´nice guy´´, ´´best of intentions´´ bosses who ended up being unmitigated disasters when strong leadership was required of them. Shinseki seems to be all that, in spades.

Barry loves to kill American citizens by drone. However, that´s verboten in the U.S., so he resorted to euthanasia.

It really is impossible to imagine that Democrats could ever be behind any scandal. This is because Democrats care about stuff, like peace and fairness and minorities oppressed by Republicans, so their intentions are always as good as can be. This applies extra to scandals involving the armed forces. When our Secretary of State, a Democrat, said American troops fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq were "like terrorists", that was actually a term of endearment, since Democrats respect the struggle of Islamic freedom fighters. So, obviously, any scandal involving Democrats is really the fault of Republicans. The MSM will make sure people understand that, don´t worry.

Fire isn´t the word I would use before the word storm here. If you want to know the future of health care in America once it is no longer feasible for it to remain private, you´re looking at it in this scandal.

While the Veterans Administration mess is ten times worse than what Obama did during the so-called government shutdown, please never forget that day when WWII Vets were shut out of their own, privately funded monument.

Regardless of when these VA debacles started, I will always remember that fulminated on Obama´s watch. (If you call his World Tour a ´´watch.´´)

This situation looks like a test run for the coming barrycare "death squads." We weren´t supposed to notice that our national heroes were dying from neglect. The VA hospitals have always been substandard because they are filled with the rejects of private medical practice but they have never had affirmative action management all the way to the White House.

The people who protested the Vietnam War and who treated veterans horribly and spat on them are now the same people who run the universities, colleges, the teachers unions, the media, the mainstream Protestant churches, and the federal government. Their hatred for veterans and for this country has saturated every institution in this country. It is evident that they have taken over the VA too. I do not just blame Obama for this scandal, I also blame the entire federal bureaucracy. The corrupt Department of the Interior closed the World War II Memorial during the government shut down to spite and insult World War II veterans. The VA has killed veterans. The NSA spies on all Americans. The IRS has been used to persecute conservatives. The entire federal government is very corrupt. We have to take out country back!

This should be a surprise to no one. As an Illinois state Senator Obama voted multiple times to allow shelving of babies that survived abortions - to die in a closet without basic medical needs or nutrition - as cruel as it gets.

So Obama like his fellow travelers are the party of death. They have no heart or soul.

Whoa there, Skippy

Every Administration in my 60 year memory has mistreated Veterans. I despise Obama with every fiber of my being but let´s get our facts straight. Of all the people in America who deserve real medical care it´s Veterans. Not sex changes, not low lifes, not illegal immigrants and damn sure not welfare cheats.

Veterans have always been on Congress´ back burner.

Still trying to make sense how this could have happened. Is this some kind of ´government-only version´ of Obamacare? Was it implemented by the VA at the behest of the Obama gang? Is this government policy or more generic incompetence and corruption?

Watch for the Obama gang and media accomplices to try to blame it on Republicans demanding budgets cuts. Never mind the VA had its budget increased year to year.

If this was government policy at fault, its another criminal offense brought to all of us by the Obama gang.

A bit of history here. Military personnel have really never been treated very well. I can remember when I first join the military, the base pay for a private was an overwhelming $78 per month. And we had to pay income tax and SS out of that. In addition, we receive a whopping $8 per month for clothing allowance. And that was in 1963. And the VA has never really been much better. It has always suffered from low budgets, not very good doctors (yes, some are very good) and a plethora of problems. And the majority of these can be pointed straight to Congress. After all, military personnel and vets aren´t really a very big voting bloc. No need to spend a lot of money on them. The entire system stinks to high and that´s why I have NEVER gone to a VA facility for medical treatment. But there are a substantial number of vets that do simply because it was in the contract they signed when they joined up. That was supposed to help defray the low pay and benefits. And don´t mention the commissary or the exchanges. For the most part, you are better off (money wise) by shopping at Wal-Mart, which a lot of active duty do.

The VA brutalities are terrifying because they are not stopped
a dead bureaucracy cannot stop being dead.
This is the perfect preview of something to come IF Obamacare is not stopped NOW. Horrifying to have all this madness put to our vets. And total insanity to repeat it on an even bigger scale to all of our citizens .....and alien invaders, too. Death, agony, suffering to MILLIONS !
Communist, bureaucrat medicine gone insane.

The same will happen in any government run healthcare.

Thanks for the perspective, #16. Veterans have NEVER been the big priority they should be for our last number of administrations. Congress particularly is big for making our vets PR props, political footballs, etc. MONEY is what federal bureaucrats receive for their "service." That´s where the rubber meets the road. Case in point: WHERE is the Republican out there demanding waiting, desperately sick veterans get VOUCHERS right now at any civilian hospital of their choosing???? Why are we not hearing this huh?

In business, gooberment and life itself, you get what you incentivize.
What the VA management incentivized with their murderously ineffective wait-time bonus program was ´´good numbers,´´, i.e. less reported wait time. They got good numbers. And they reported good numbers to Congress who believed those ´´improved´´ good numbers.

They got their bonuses. And they lied and brave vets died. Therefore, a criminal investigation for negligent homicides and conspiracy to commit negligent homicide is now mandatory. And if you stop and think about it, that bonus program and common sense judgement of its incentivizing ramifications displays a degree of premeditation.

A White House spokesman said Wednesday that there is an "ongoing law enforcement investigation" related to a recording released earlier in the day by a Republican congressman who alleged it showed improper fundraising activity by former U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis -- now a Los Angeles County supervisor-elect. The comment by White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest at a press briefing was the first public confirmation by the administration of the existence of such an investigation. Earnest noted that the investigation had been reported on in January. The Times first reported the federal investigation into Solis´ activities at that time,

According to refugee data from the U.S. Department of State, the federal government did not grant refugee protection to a single person from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador or Mexico in fiscal year 2013. Now, almost all of the unaccompanied children illegally crossing into the U.S. from Mexico are coming from those nations, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other congressional Democrats have described these illegal aliens as “refugees.” In the seven fiscal years from 2007 through 2013, a mere five Guatemalans and 25 Hondurans were granted refugee status in the United States.

It’s one thing to take care of illegal immigrants who come to America and are under the age of 18 (before sending them back), and it’s another to burn through taxpayer money rolling out the red carpet. From the Gateway Pundit: The Obama administration has awarded a $50 million contract to a charitable group to buy a Texas resort hotel and transform it in to a 600 bed facility for juvenile illegal aliens. That resort hotel? The Palm Aire Hotel and Suites in Weslaco, Texas – a generously acommodated resort with such amenities as an outdoor swimming pool (pictured above).

As an investigation by the Daily Beast has learned, however, the Pentagon has somehow lost multiple cars belonging to American servicemen and women. Here’s how it happens: The Pentagon often reassigns their soldiers to different stations throughout the world, and helps their families defray the financial costs of moving — including the cost of shipping their cars. For decades, the Pentagon contracted this service out to American Auto Logistics (AAL), but replaced them this summer with a company called International

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
