    And they defend their own lies rather than admit to them.

    40 vets died waiting 6- months or longer for vital healthcare. Healthcare mind you ran entirely by the government. And you think national healthcare is going to be better.

    How dumb do you have to be to believe this?

    What a load of crap. If your facts do not have a link proving that what you have posted is true they are not worth SHIT.

    Why are Dem's never able to stay within bipartisan agreed upon spending?
    They always want to spend more.

    Democrats kill veterans to make their wait times look good then try to blame Republicans because they lied.

    The cuts to the care we vets have been receiving were enacted by Congress.

    And they've been ongoing since 2005.

    I had an appointment at the VA today. The employees there are heartbroken by this and cite congressional cutbacks, bureaucratic hiring policies, political appointments of non-medical, and often non-business administrators, lack of facilities, and the huge influx of returning troops from two unnecessary wars.

    And why is it that conservatives like to wave the flag and speak about taking care of the veterans but when a chance comes along to increase veterans health care and education benefits they slam the door in veterans faces? Why is that?

    CNN has been covering the more than 40 vets who died while waiting, the director has finally been suspended in the Phoenix office. BTW she was in the WA office where she was accused of wrong doing, then moved to Phoenix by the VA to cover up her wrong doing. Additionally, it has also been uncovered they are doing the same in many other VA facilities.

    I posted this earlier. Apparently you lack basic reading skills.

    Yet you both missed my post where I pointed out the administrator charged was a republican appointee in a red state led by a republican governor.

    We really didn't need affirmation that liberals tend to fixate on deviant anal sexual congress.

    Administered by a democrat white house and their choice for the head of the VA but yes that is pretty much my point.

    If this is the best a government run healthcare system can be in a pro-military, pro-conservatism state how bad will it get under any administration when we are all forced into this type of system?

    This is government run healthcare in a nut shell. We've been telling you people this forever and have numerous left wing idiots use the VA as an example of how healthcare should be run. Well, this is how government healthcare is run. You still want more of it?

    The VA transferred her to each place, moving her like the Catholic Church does pedophiles due to one scandal after another:

    Here is her history ( 7 year period BTW) :

    First moved into position here:

    VA in Roseberg, Ore

    then transferred BY THE VA to :

    Jonathan M. Wainwright Memorial VA Medical Center, Walla Walla, WA
    ( Scandal firing top dogs and using them as scapegoats for her screw-ups)

    Then THE VA transferred her to:

    Spokane WA VA Center
    ( found to be lying about soldiers committing suicide on her watch and underreporting numbers to the VA)

    Then THE VA transferred her to:

    Hines, Illinois VA Center ( more firings of top dogs and scandals)

    and finally the VA transferred her to:

    Arizona VA. where she Kills 40 plus veterans in less than 1 year.



    If Brewer supposedly appointed her, which is not true, why in the hell was she still employed by the US Department of Affairs and given gleaming reviews with scandal after scandal? Why didn't Shinseki fire her ass?

    Brewer appoints the Director of Arizona Department of Veterans Affairs, Governor Jan Brewer appointed Ted Vogt to that position. Brewer does not appoint individual hospital directors such as the Phoenix VA Health Care System, Helman was suspended from.

    Why do you think there are demands by Eric Shinseki for her resignation and then also demands by the public, senators and VA officials for Eric Shinseki to resign? Its because he allowed her to stay, scandal after scandal and moved her to each VA Heath Care System.
