VA Scandal? If So Why Not All The Facilities!

The 'scandal' is showing that some are seeking ways to bring politics and greed into their government jobs and passing on to others like minded, it seems, along with not keeping the peoples responsibility, as they've ignored issue after issue, to the level of their promises and contracts to those, the very few, that serve them, been so for decades and the wars of! While blaming the dedicated workers, Conservative Congressional hearings, and the media, ideology, within and the legions of volunteers that greatly help keep the long under funded VA facilities running as smoothly as possible!

Following the reports of these audits is showing two sides to the coin, long sought target on Gen Shinseki after he spoke Military Truth and the bushco fired him, 'Mission Accomplished'. And though under funded for decades as the country served totally ignored costly issues from those decades and wars of. Some, like Sally Satel, of the Conservative American Enterprise Institute, made comfortable livings writing and speaking on the denial conditions even existed, in her case PTS. This decade plus and two wars of, abandoning the missions and those sent to accomplish so quickly after 9/11, came with two tax cuts, huge for the wealthy, and no calls to sacrifice. None of the problems that arise because of the long under funding are ever compared to the private sector, that being a goal of conservative ideology, privatize for corporate profit from the peoples treasury and as still a government agency the ability to legislate extra fee's as well as finally stop the obstructing of the needed budgets especially related to the poser patriotism flag waving wars!
