Posted on 05/22/2014 5:04:27 PM PDT by Kevin in California
Just when you think Democrats cant possibly sink any lower, they go and do something like this.
Marco Rubio wants to pass the Veterans Affairs Management Accountability Act. This bill aims to make it easier/possible for the scandal-plagued department to fire employees based on poor performance (like any other real job). The House overwhelmingly passed it with a bipartisan vote of 390 to 33. (Only Democrats objected.)
They have no intention of fixing ANY problem.
wonder if the msm will/cover this as obstructionist. or if they’ll follow harry calling it partisan politics - ignoring the house vote.
So, let’s have the names of those who voted NAY to this Act.
Obama would not sign it .lets face it were toast and we will have Hillary in 2016!!!!!
DimocRATS and federal employees think that federal employees deserve a paycheck and benefits regardless of whether they work or not and they further believe that they shouldn’t be subject to immediate dismissal upon their wrongdoing.
That but its also part of the bigger plan. Build the federal govt and make it unaccountable to anyone.
Not suprised at all. The democrats are scum communists who hate America and Reid is the neo nazi leader of the scum in DC whom need to be removed from America. No more deals with the neo nazi democrats who are unconstitutional when judged by the Constitution and Declaration of Independence as well as the bill of rights. The nazi loving Reid is such a bottom dwelling scum that it can only get worse for Americans in the remaining years of the obamanation regime of hatred, racism against whites and gender bias against males.
So, we don’t already have laws in place to fire incompetent federal workers who engaged in possible criminal activity.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
They can always sink even lower, there is no end to the corruption.
Senator Bernie Sanders, a union-backed socialist from Vermont, objected on behalf
of Senate Democrats to Rubios request. Instead of taking any action now, Sanders
said he is going to hold a hearingseveral weeks from now.
Sanders, who chairs the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs, has been one of
the most outspoken defenders of the VA against allegations of misconduct. When asked
about reports of multiple deaths related to long wait times at the VA healthcare
system, Sanders told CNN: People die every day.
Yeah, it's just RATs protecting RATs...typical gubmint goonion crap.
Most denizens of the democRATic hack-o-rama are overpaid, do-nothing campaign workers, or defeated elected officials (good soldiers) who are otherwise unemployable in the real world.
Most government departments or agencies care nothing about their alleged purpose, but solely about protecting their precious budget. (do-nothing "jobs")
Well, if there aren’t laws on the books like that...there sure should be.
I don’t get it. There is no reason that misconduct is not a valid reason for dismissal.
This is exactly why it is paramount to get rid of Harry Reid as SML and win 51 seats minimum in senate in 2014. Repubs must unite to accomplish that goal.
You don't have to wonder.........
Why doesn’t anyone connected to Team Barry ever get fired? BECAUSE THE REGIME IS AFRAID THEY’LL TALK TO THE MEDIA, THAT’S WHY. Gotta keep’em on that leash!
you’re right, :-)
Yes, the names.
WHEN PIGS FLY! LOL
So we have a fix to repair the VA and the Democrats block it. Incredible. What on earth is going on in Washington DC? have they all gone mad?
“They have no intention of fixing ANY problem.”
They probably don’t want to allow it to be easier to fire people in the bureaucracy. That must be protected at all costs.
LIBs/DIMs are subhuman scum who have no intention of ever not hating you and your family. They will only be satisfied when their infiltrating moozlum friends chop off your heads. Fascist losers.
In the history of Federal Employment, has a Federal Employee ever been fired for not doing their job?
No, and the Federal Employees’ Union will never let them set a precedent with the VA.
His wife told him when he told her about it she said “when pigs fly”.
He's naming the place When Pigs Fly!
You can’t fix a Marxist model.
Pray America wakes up
I don't see anything to show that this has been deferred or declined.
At least the Senate Dems know where their priorities are: They sign a letter demanding the Redskins football team change its name. They ignore the soldiers who fought “Bush’s War.”
Too bad, they don’t know what is really a priority. But then Dems don’t like the military.
Ah, I see. Bernie Sanders is the veterans’ affairs chairman, and he’s just going to let it languish. That’s the kerfuffle here. Pretty slimy.

Senate demonrats are inbred traitors and vile oxygen thieves. They fix nothing that is worthwhile; they only seek to destroy and desecrate what is good.
I just saw video of Bernie Sanders saying they couldn’t vote for something without reading it.
ITS 3 STINKIN PAGES!
Democrats cant read?
Apparently not. It only takes me a few minutes to read 3 pages.
The biggest threat to America is the female voter, and yeah.. This needs to be talked about because something must be done to STOP THEIR GULLIBILITY WHEN IT COMES TO VOTING, LIKE BEING LED DOWN THE PRIMROSE PATH BY OBAMA, PELOSI, SANDRA FLUKE, BLAH BLAH BLAH ETC ETC..!!!!!
Bernie Sanders says he didn’t have time to read a 3 page bill. I sure wish they had felt that way about Obamacare.
Jon Stewart’s on dems’ case with the VA thing... they’re going to have to do something... Stewart can get the word out to democrats who never hear a critical word about democrats from their usual ‘news’ sources.
Was it in cursive?
What is Senator Sanders covering up, and who else is in on the VA Hospital Coverup?
I heard on FOX News tonight that Sanders received $250,000 from that union.
Sanders said today they needed time to read the bill. The bill is only 3 pages long. What a putz.
Harry didn’t let it get to Obama so he wouldn’t have to make that decision.
The House voted on the bill yesterday, May 21st.
Those who voted against it - all Dems - are:
Sánchez, Linda T.
These didn’t vote:
Dingy Harry rides in at the last moment and places the bill on the railroad tracks just as the train arrives!
Democrats. Licensed to kill.
This has not been classified as a Scandal yet, but should, it goes with the VA Scandal. On 4/14/2014 all Military TRICARE LIFE were DOD MANDATED to use either base dispensary or Express Scripts. No grantee of a Dispense as Written DAW, if the med has a generic. Some meds have a very narrow window of under performance that most generics have. Thyroid medication is one. I take only the DAW name brand Synthroid, because of the weak working of the generic and the side effects.
I chose base, as I can inspect my meds. Hubby who is the Ret SCPO, has to order 2 of his Name brand drugs from ES. Took 2 weeks to get a script filled. We did not allow them access to our credit card or bank for auto pay.
Question remains the money trail, as this company has a HORRID record with government contracts. Rumor mill has it Medicare and Medicaid will be forced to use them too. Some one with more knowledge and better search skills could do some digging to help expose it more than I’ve found out.

Dems and this maggot called obammy are using this federal gubmint and his minions to try to destroy conservatism.
Instead this group of facists are destroying America.
Thank you, I thought I was the only one that couldn’t figure this out, I just went to thomas.loc.gov and the senate rc votes and could find nothing.
Any and all BureauCRAPS are special!
They vote Democrat and are therefore a ‘protected class’.
