Once again Obama is “madder than hell!” over the treatment of our Veterans in the latest scandal to engulf this administration. He is vowing one more time that this is “unacceptable”, that we need to “get to the bottom of this” and “to find out who is responsible and bring them to justice.” The same words were parroted by Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki as he testified before Congress on Thursday about the reports of deadly waiting times and lists, along with a cover-up that most probably caused the deaths of at least 40 patients at VA hospitals in Arizona.
Well, guess what?
I am MAD AS HELL for real!
I am sick and tired of this pathetic mantra repeated over and over again whenever the “s**t” hits the fan in Washington. The American people, our Veterans and their families, we have all had enough, and this time the Obama administration can’t lie their way out of it.For once, even the lamestream media is giving airtime and print to this story instead of sweeping it under the carpet like all of the others.
It has been obvious for a very long time that our vets are not a priority with this administration. However, both parties are to blame for cuts to benefits and the failure to keep our military personnel out of poverty. It is disgraceful that the people who put their lives on the line to keep us safe are the ones being kicked to the curb.
What happened to the “No man left behind” motto? In Benghazi, our Embassy was under attack; our Ambassador was murdered along with former Navy Seals Glen Doherty and Ty Woods and U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith. They were all left behind and this administration dismissed it as though it were yesterday’s garbage.
“Dude, that was two years ago!”
Try being the families of those fallen heroes and you will find out that the memory never dies and never fades.
With the allegations that have come to light over the abuse at the VA hospitals, not only are veterans “left behind”, now they are “left to die”. We found out that ill and injured veterans who believed and trusted that the VA hospitals would look after them and provide them with the care they needed were put on a waiting list, forgotten and never contacted again. This was so administrators could earn bonuses for making the numbers look better for shorter wait times.
