If the older Obama-VA-care is crumbling, then how long will it take for this new and improved Obama-care to crumble?

If these two failed Federal Medical Programs were to be combined, - - - say on Christmas Eve this year, would the surviving name be : “OBAMA VERY AWFUL CARE?”

Yeah, that’s the ticket. Ask his wife, Morgan Fairchild.

Time for the animated picture of the blonde girl giving the thumbs-up.

He was outraged about the IRS too... and the ‘movie’ that caused Benghazi...(was that a slap in the face or what?) His ‘outrage’ over the VA is so fake only the MSM will buy it.

Heads need to roll. The “resignation” of Dr. Robert Petzel in a Friday Night news dump was actually already in the works.

Of course obama is outraged.
He’s outraged that this scandal has been exposed. He doesn’t care bupkus for the Veterans. It appears the elderly and Veterans are the first to experience death panels.
Some people will lose their jobs because they didn’t hide this better.

You’d be outraged too if you needed that short putt for a 36 on the front nine and you pulled it.

The liberal scandal playbook:

Step 1: Pretend to be outraged.
Step 2: Order an in-house investigation.
Step 3: Deflect all questions, as an investigation is in progress.
Step 4: Wait for everyone to forget about the scandal.

Obama and the Democrats gave $50,000 each to make believe pig farmers without delay. It is obvious that the Democrats are stalling the Veterans in order to use the money to buy votes.

Heh, if Obama could ever shoot a even par on any nine! He is probably outraged that he only shot a 45 on the front! That would be likely his normal score - 90 for 18 on a good day...ha.

Today I passed a building in a nearby town, it had two big banners out on the side of the building, at least 3’x6’ each I would guess. The first was “Obama...One Big A** Mistake America” and the second was “Obama You Lie” I stopped, took pictures and said to myself that if I am someday looking for a job, this would be a great place to start!

I would hardly call that a grilling, he didn’t even get an answer, other the same old answer about how outraged obama always is about everything he is responsible for.

“What difference does it make right? They are already dead and we can’t bring them back to life. What we need to do now is forget about them and make the necessary corrections to prevent it from happening again.”

When the coward and traitor does speak it will go something like that right?

I heard Obama is going to have his own Sunday
TV news program, it’s going to be called
Deface the Nation, or Beat the Press...

Anyway Obama is only outraged because it’s another
scandal perpetrated by one of his minions, that
is ending up his dreams of a shining legacy.

Sad as it is, we probably need to find a black veteran who died due to this, and then maybe Barry and Shelly will see their brother or uncle or cousin or nephew in the tragedy.

It’s because they got caught. Odumbo and his ilk are just hanging out more window dressing to make it appear they are “outraged”.

He is only outraged that it came to light and that he’s taking heat. He couldn’t care less about veterans.

To Obama, veterans are props at photo ops.

Veterans Affairs and Death by Bureaucracy

Posted By Arnold Ahlert On May 20, 2014 @ 12:19 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage

There may finally be a scandal engulfing the Obama administration that even Democrats and their media collaborators can’t obfuscate. What happened at the VA facility in Phoenix, AZ, where employees created two sets of waiting lists to make it seem patients were being treated in a timely manner—and as many as 40 veterans allegedly died while languishing on the secret list—is an anomaly. Six more whistleblowers from around the nation have stepped forward, alleging the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) facilities they worked at also “cooked the books.”

The despicable subterfuge, allegedly occurring in at least seven VA Medical Centers in Arizona, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Texas, North Carolina and Illinois is as simple as it was heartless. The official waiting list is the one that ostensibly met the VA’s policy, implemented by Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki in 2010. It set a 14-day time limit to provide care for a veteran making an initial application for an appointment. Yet by the agency’s own admission, only 41 percent of new VA medical patients were seen within that period in 2013, down from 90 percent in 2012.

THE REST OF THE SCANDAL

Veterans Hospitals Death Panel Scandal Is a Preview of Life Under Obamacare.

The best example of how Obamacare’s “death panels” is going to work, is the scandal of the unknown number of veteran sentenced to death for being denied or delayed medical assistance by government bureaucracies of the V.A.
