´Veterans died! Get us the answers!´:
Republicans boil over as Veterans
Affairs officials answer subpoenas
with excuses and blank stares

Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko

Sparks flew during a rare late-night hearing before the House Veterans Affairs Committee, as visibly upset Republicans raked VA officials over the coals while the ink was still wet on a scathing inspector general report condemning the agency´s deadly failures. Tennessee Republican Rep. Phil Roe, a physician and veteran of the Army Medical Corps, summed up the mood on Capitol Hill when he addressed Dr. Thomas Lynch, the VA´s assistant deputy undersecretary for health. Noting that the three officials at the witness table are well-paid but presided over a system that ignored the needs of cash-strapped veterans who are locked

Wonder what kind of background the Moody woman has for working at the VA? Is she just an EEOC appointee/hire so that they have some females on staff? She sounds like a self-centered incompetent excuse maker. Who is she married to? I´m thinking that she is some kind of political payoff, like Michelle Obama at the Chicago hospital drawing down $300 grand / year.

I´ve noticed this writer´s name on a lot of the stories posted here from the DM and I get the sense that he´s not a friend of Republicans.

Still, I do want to know who cares about this. I want to know who spins and protects the administration.

Not to worry. Dear Leader Barack Hussein cares deeply and is not only mad but also outraged. He will see to it that the YouTube video director responsible is severely punished.

Disgraceful that our veterans are being neglected and abused this way.

This is just the warm-up for when Obamacare takes hold. Instead of veterans, it will be most citizens who will be getting treated like this.

These representatives are wasting their time and ours. I read that the House passed a bill last week to give VA officials the option of firing employees for cause. If things are soo screwed up that this bill is necessary their is nothing upper management can do to right this system. These hearings are nothing but sound and fury signifying nothing; just political cover.

I have a question: Shouldn´t we also hold the Chairmen of the House and Senate veterans´ committees responsible also? They are supposed to doing due diligence and oversight.

So maybe some of these Senators and Congressmen should climb down from their soapboxes and explain what they´ve been doing for the years they have been on the Senate Veterans´ Affairs´ Committee. How did this get so out of hand?

The giant, bloated, expensive, union controlled bureaucracy that is the VA (like the new cancer of obamacare), must be totally shut down, obliterated, ENDED.
Using that same allotment of wasted money given DIRECTLY to each wounded vet, to be spent freely of choice, will solve all, every problem quickly, with much less loss corruption and failure..

The VA is unlike all the other competitive hospitals and medical systems. It doesn´t compete for business the way ALL THE OTHERS DO. It is inoperable, rusty, failing, bloated, dead on arrival, spoiled, just plain irresponsible to most of its victims, aka patients..

If we can give free medicine to all alien Catholic invaders,
and no questions asked food stamps to ANYbody who asks
why can´t we GIVE all wounded vets the money to go DIRECTLY to the doctor of their choice eliminating this
mass union dominated bureaucracy that´s wasting most of the money?

Like Charter schools, that give parents a choice for their kids, a direct payment charter for our wounded vets, eliminated the entire bureaucracy and gives all wounded vets DIRECT ACCESS to the medical provider of their CHOICE !

The VA was originally created to make sure that vets that had been wounded in combat received the special treatment that they needed. However, in time, just like all federal programs, it was expanded to cover ALL vets and all of their ailments. The old make it bigger so it´s better thinking. The thing that never was changed is the necessity of having more doctors, nurses, hospitals, money, etc. As such, rationing of health care for vets became the norm. And what has happened to this system is going to happen to obozocare. You can bet the farm on it. And if congress persons are mad as hell about what is happening to our vets, what are they going to do when the same thing starts happening to the entire populace?

The VA medical department was originally created to provide the special needs of vets that had been wounded in combat. But just like all the other federal programs, in order to buy more votes, the system was made bigger and better (according to the politicians). The results are what we see today. Just like the rest of federal programs. And obozocare will eventually become the exact same thing. And instead of some vets dying it will be an enormous amount of citizens dying because of the rationing of health care. You can bet the farm on it.

Yes, the VA was originally designed to help wounded and disabled war veterans. In fact, when I first applied for VA from Vietnam, it was only my Purple Heart that allowed me to get the full coverage. At the time, if I did not have the PH, I would have had to buy VA coverage (about $150.00 a month at the time). Also, I was very surprised to learn it covered everything, not just my wounded concerns. Also, at the time, no non-combat theater vets could get full VA services. If you served in VN, for example, you were classified depending on if you were actually in combat, wounded, or were some cook at an Air force base. If your entire duty was state side during Vietnam era, you still did not get full Federal paid VA.

I guess, now it´s different.

One can only conclude that the dems quite happy with the way the VA is mistreating our vets. I bet it won´t be long now before they try to play the old "there´s no scandal here. It´s just another Republican witch hunt" card. I doubt it will work this time though. I sure hope not.

The number of Americans who see illegal immigration as the nation´s most pressing problem has spiked from 3 per cent to 17 percent since May, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. That percentage now tops government corruption, the U.S. economy, jobs, health care and every other hot-button issue, driven by a flood of tens of thousands of illegal immigrant children pouring across the U.S.-Mexico border. When Gallup announced the results of the same poll in two months age, ´immigration´ and ´illegal aliens´ ranked eleventh out of 47 issues, attracting a deep level of worry from fewer Americans than those

The White House refused to comply today with a subpoena issued by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee demanding that the president´s official political adviser testify before Congress. The president´s Director of the Office of Political Strategy & Outreach, David Simas, was scheduled to appear before the Oversight committee today to state for the record that his work does not violate a federal law that bans most executive branch employees from engaging in political activity.

A Swedish court has ruled that an arrest warrant against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange on charges of sexual assault will stay in place. Mr Assange, who denies the allegations, has sought refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy in London for the past two years to avoid extradition. If he is sent to Sweden, he says he fears charges in the US over the leaking of secret government documents. [Snip] "All in all, the district court makes the assessment that the reasons for the arrest warrant offset the infringement and adverse effects the measure entails for Julian Assange," Judge Lena Egelin said.

Dozens of protesters on both sides of the immigration debate showed up in a small town near Tucson on Tuesday after the sheriff said the federal government plans to transport about 40 immigrant children to an academy for troubled youths - but the kids never arrived. The rallies demonstrated the deep divide of the immigration debate. One group waved American flags, held signs that read ´Return to Sender´ and ´Go home non-Yankees´ and said they would block a bus that was supposed to arrive with immigrant children aboard. It turned heated at times, with shouting matches and a group of

The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“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.
