    Walt, there is a better target than the V.A. Please go after our well-compensated congressmen, with their own special health care plan.

    Congress is the font of all our problems, they made all the laws and lack of oversight that has put US where we are today.

    No answers, but the direction of our nation is plain.
    Neglecting our poor is one thing, but neglecting our source of power is plainly wrong.
    But it is very doubful the congress persons responsible will take any repercussions at all.

    Yes indeed, blame VA, not Halliburton, Lockheed (both connected to the Cheneys), Boeing, Raytheon, and defense contractors always willing to send more troops out to die, or need VA for life-long disabilities.


    BTW; those same taxpayer sucking machines also have just as many incompetents working for them as government, but they get paid a LOT MORE!

    SQUAWK! HALLIBURTON! SQUAWK! CHENEY! SQUAWK!

    I bet you have no idea of how many no-bid contracts the Obama Administration has awarded Halliburton since 2009. You can start with this contract awarded in 2010 for $568 million. Of course Halliburton may be the only firm that it qualified to do the work. That can’t be said for awarding CGI a no-bid contract for building the Obamacare website, because there are hundreds of IT firms that could do it, and unlike CGI, do it successfully.

    SQUAWK!

    Boy, what a bunch of Chicken Hawks that have screwed up thousands if not millions of men and women and families in our country! It’s a shame that nobody went to prison for this! I wonder how they can sleep at night?

    ^It’s a PATTERN, North, Poindexter, Meese III, Rove, Rumsfeld ( a LONG history f screwing troops) of REPUBLICAN administrations who’ve screwed us over. McCain is a decade late in calling for “cleaning house”, and should point instead at the REPUBLICAN HOUSE (of Representatives, for years) who’ve under-funded VA, even during the “Shrub wars”( for a personal family grudge!).

    <
    Which, think MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) and the complaints of veterans with “Gulf War Syndrome”, and look at the area of origin of the disease, mutations, and OUR use of chemical and radioactive weapons. (yes “depleted” uranium does NOT = not radioactive!) Viruses change very, very, quickly.

    VA funding has never been higher. I don’’t hear Shinseki blaming this scandal on lack of funding. Only pacifist liberals.

    churchillwasright: This peaceful populist says the solution is to stop disabling more. As for your eponymous god, a contemporary summed it up best, “Indispensable in war, insufferable in peace.”

    churchillwasright: Most religions tend to focus on a dead human. In your case, it is Winston.
