Damage Left by Bush Administration: Incoming Obama administration was warned of VA waitlists in 2008
May 19, 2014|President Barack Obama has not addressed the widening VA scandal, despite allegations that more than 100 veterans have died waiting for treatment. CBS News obtained a memo that indicates the president’s advisers were warned about the problem in 2008, months before Obama took office. Major Garrett reports.
Just much more of what the Bushco and controlled Conservative Congresses left and dumped into the New Administration and Country to clean up, obstructing all since, country has yet to Sacrifice nor demanded to!!
Where were those American (conservative) Legion and Conservatives (long seeking to privatize for corporate profit) calls to fire Principi, 2001–2005, Nicholson, 2005–2007, James Peake, 2007– change of Executive Administrations, who did absolutely nothing as two more wars/occupations raged, oh wait they were being highly praised (even by rolling thunder) because they were theirs!! The problems weren't even being reported and insider VA whistle blowers were no where to be found, there were many reports of lost records in lost or stolen computers though!! Out of all the extremely dedicated workers, and volunteers, find those bringing the politics into their government jobs, especially the VA where individual politics have no place, only takes a very few with agenda's and not caring who's hurt!
This Obama Administration, the whole cabinet, are the only Government Branch doing for Veterans, consistently since coming in, Federal and States!! Brother McCain, giving his conservative speak 17 May 2014 Saturday, you and especially your party, along with most of the country, have done zip, especially under the bush! Nor have any yet paid for these wars nor the results from!!
WHY? GOOD QUESTION THOSE SERVED SHOULD ANSWER, added to the past decades and wars of the ignoring of many issues along with the denying they exist! Think PTS, Agent Orange and Desert Storms Gulf War Syndrom, to name but only a very few, most now being addressed under This VA and Executive branch even though grossly, decades and wars from, under funded!!
