PHOENIX (AP) -- Sen. John McCain listened to complaints from several veterans over the Veterans Affairs system, telling them that reported lapses in care in Phoenix are part of a nationwide problem that needs to be fixed.
"This is not a unique situation as far as Arizona is concerned," McCain said Friday. "I emphasize everyone is innocent until proven guilty, but this appears to be a problem of nationwide implications."(continued)

Since he's retired military and in congress, he doesn't use our system. Remember that. He has Rolls-Royce medical care, for life.

It’s plain to see that the Democrats have told the VA officials to stall so that that money can be used to buy Democrat votes.

Problems now being reported in Cheyenne and San Antonio VAH. Only the beginning, IMO.

I hadn’t heard about Cheyenne but just south of there in Ft. Collins. McCain probably wants more money for illegals welfare that helping vets.

"My friends, I will work with my fellow legislators across the aisle, form a Gang of something-something, and come up with a bipartisanship solution. By the way, I'm running again in 2016. The Maverick is back!"

If John McCain is for us .... we’re screwed.

Screw you, McCain you POS. Your POW cred wore out decades ago.

When I made an appointment to see a VA doctor, I was told that I could be put on a list to be put on “the” list to see a doctor. 18 months later I received notice that I could see a doctor in 6 months. I kept my appointment.

And when you did see a VA doctor did he speak English? I can’t understand half of what my VA doctor says. He spends 90 percent of my appointment time typing on his PC without saying a word or asking me anything. I have a theory that all of the good doctors are successful and have their own practices and earn big bucks at major hospitals. The bad ones, especially the ones who have been sued so many times they can no longer afford or even get malpractice insurance, all look for safe jobs within the government. The VA doctors also have an attitude that you are lucky just to see them, and if you are not happy then too bad.
