06/06/14 - Demanding information easier than receiving for some GOP lawmakers
Rachel Maddow reviews recent examples of Republican politicians complaining about a lack of information on issues they claim to care about and then not going to the briefings where the information they’re complaining about is being presented.
As a Vet what the 'watchdog' report should have said: "GOPer VA employee's within might have retaliated on their own Whistleblowers, mistakenly!!"
The more that comes out on this the continuation of the Decades Long SCANDAL, not a VA scandal, of those served through their lawmakers! The more most evidence gathering on, greed and politics where politics has no place, looks like another front in the long want for the GOP to privatize government agencies, that's working real well where they've succeeded in parts of with them highly paid private contractors now hasn't it, for corporate profit from the peoples treasury. And as they would still be called 'government agencies' the ability to legislate extra fee's and costs, think our recent rubber stamped no bid contracts wars, especially the quick built merc army that spread into intelligence gathering and more, or the NSA intelligence gathering, running special ops operations and more. And when private , no oversite, no regulations, and absolutely no accountability, they would continue blaming those working in the agencies, the few to make it still look like a government agency, they do that now without mentioning them corporate government private entities!
The added to this was that Gen Shinseki, within the only government branch doing for not only the Veterans but the Military personal and their families now for five years, had a target on him since he spoke Military Truth and bushco fired him! Well he's now resigned, another GOPer 'mission accomplished' and to them no need to fix the long term problems they created in that front to privatize!!!!
Notice that when attacking the VA, or any government agency and personal, in hearings on the news waves in their districts........, they never related those at the huge problems found with that bottom line only, and with growing problems, found in the privatized already government work being done, nor within the whole corporate america new capitalism ideologies!
