Why did we ever segregate our veterans into these government hospitals? Just give them a level of coverage and be done with it. Getting government to run it just makes for more problems.

Give them private insurance cards to be used when bureaucracy is failing them. Probably save a lot of $$$$.

Very hard to fire a top government worker or civil servant but head should roll and where applicable, criminal charges made. I'm sure our Attorney General will not see that, that happens but as usual perpetuate the cover up(s).

From allenbwest . com...

"As reported by Foxnews****, (*GASP*) “A Veterans Affairs official accused of keeping double books to hide the fact that dozens of veterans died awaiting care previously ran a Washington state VA facility that allegedly fudged suicide numbers. The VA official, Sharon Helman, director of the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care system, is accused with other management officials of keeping a fake waiting list that made it appear sick veterans were being treated in a timely manner — while hiding the real list that showed up to 1,600 sick veterans were waiting months to see a physician."

The article also said Helman received a bonus of $9,345 last year, in addition to her annual base salary of $169,900.

I say that waiting lists created to help a VA official, and not the veterans that VA is supposed to help, are wrong. How many vets died while waiting for services? Are any heads rolling over this yet?

Looks like Pjinfinity's original post with the wild-eyed assertion has somehow gone "poof" so I'll make a mild-eyed assertion after looking at pPJinfinity's proofs.

National Review article c/p

"U.S. representative Adam Kinzinger (R., Ill.) said the VA’s secret waiting lists display “a level of incompetency — to a level of criminality” on Face the Nation Sunday. The representative, an Air Force veteran, said the VA’s long claims backlog was a sign of incompetent bureaucracy, but that the fake list “is criminal negligence.” The president hasn’t shown the “intense outrage” that he should over the VA scandal, Kinzinger said, and the Department of Justice should be involved."

Shoot to kill. These things are dangerous animals and if they don't run away from you immediately, you'll need to do something about it.

Pjinfinity, prove your wild-eyed assertion, that it's only a "faked VA hospital waiting list in Arizona."

"Proof" equals sources cited from any type of news organization.

As Jack might say, I'm sure assertions feel good, but they aren't facts until they're proven.

Go fer it...

What have Democrats done when incidents like Benghazi, Fast/Furious, IRS (not a smidgeon of corruption) scandal, VA scandal, etc., have faced investigation?

A. Act big...bluster and fuss while withholding information

B. Stand still...and hope that Republicans will get tired of waiting

C. Stop, drop & roll...because any little "fires" of truth possibly coming out are to be extinguished at all costs

D. Play dead...if this fools those Republicans, we'll use it all the time

E. Run...on Obamacare, because 2014 Fall Elections are coming up fast, aren't they?

"Sarah the Moose Killer"

I know this to be true since I saw it from my own back yard.....

Almost the same I suppose as when Laura B got that up close, real personal life changing moment for others that GW only got to view on those droney moments.....

GW was upset but undeterred as he ordered up another round of those cigar shaped objects after failing to take out both of Saddam's sons at the same time stating..."How am I gonna explain to CNN that more women & children died than targets, again!"

What would you do if you encountered a chronic liar in the oval office?

a. ACT BIG. Nope. The liar will always see you as insignificant.

b. PLAY DEAD. Nope. Establishment Republicans have been doing this for years. It doesn't solve any problems.

c. RUN. Yes. Run only grounded, honest individuals for President and all Congressional offices. Elect citizen legislators - individuals who know they are accountable to the people, not the other way around. Insist that term limits are enacted, and that they are constructed to effectively prevent these Washington insiders from taking control again.

"Yeah, except . . . Obama knows the difference between a comma and an apostrophe."

Of course he does! He would use a comma to separate the names of all 57 states in a list.
