With all due respect, Congress and the current Muslim Marxist Administration are also disasters that have to go! (spit!)

Bob Dole is part of the problem. He won’t admit it.

I just saw Bernie Sanders saying the democrats shouldn’t vote for the Veterans Affairs Management Accountability Act because they haven’t had time to read it. Its 3 stinking pages!

Democrats in the Senate just blocked any chance of a reorganization. Funny, they will whine and cry about this being Bush’s fault, but they will stop any plan to fix it because it would cost a union person their job for lying and contributing to the death of a vet

When Shinseki was appointed as Sec of VA, I thought that here was good general, who is disabled himself, that can fix the problems with the VA. It is obvious now that either he never tried to fix the problems or was overwhelmed by the bureaucracy and had NO support from 0bama.

He should resign and find a place to do penance, perhaps cleaning the bed pans at a VA hospital.

Listened to Bobby Jindal on the Medved show and he couldn’t or wouldn’t take issue with the premise of whether the gov’t should be in the business of providing healthcare. Screw-ups at the DMV waste time, whereas screw-ups in gov’t run hospitals waste lives.

The V.A. needs CRIMINAL PROSECUTION where every veteran died
and where the bureaucrat-in-charge recieved a BONUS !


An 'Accessory to murder' still remains a criminal charge in all of the United States.
Let a few of them plea to a reduced charge so long as they can point to where they recieved the directive,
and to whom they direct - send them to GITMO !!

Bob Dole and Jimmy Carter should go to a nursing home and spend the day playing rummy.

Thanks for the input, Bob. Yes, we have a do-nothing President who highlighted the problem in 2007 but then apparently the amnesia set in. Fortunately the government does not depend on such pathetic incompetents as 0bama for the management of this function. The Legislative branch has oversight committees! And so I'd like to put a question to these people as well:

Senate Committee on Veteran's Affairs:

Bernie Sanders (I) (VT)
Democrats
Rockefeller IV, John D. (WV)
Murray, Patty (WA)
Brown, Sherrod (OH)
Tester, Jon (MT)
Begich, Mark (AK)
Blumenthal, Richard (CT)
Hirono, Mazie (HI)

Republicans
Richard Burr (NC)
Isakson, Johnny (GA)
Johanns, Mike (NE)
Moran, Jerry (KS)
Boozman, John (AR)
Heller, Dean (NV)

House Committee on Veteran's Affairs

Republicans
Jeff Miller (FL), Chairman
Doug Lamborn (CO)
Gus M. Bilirakis (FL)
David P. Roe (TN)
Bill Flores (TX)
Jeff Denham (CA)
Jon Runyan (NJ)
Dan Benishek (MI)
Tim Huelskamp (KS)
Mike Coffman (CO)
Brad Wenstrup (OH)
Paul Cook (CA)
Jackie Walorski (IN)
David Jolly (FL)

Democrats
Michael H. Michaud (ME)
Corrine Brown (FL)
Mark Takano (CA)
Julia Brownley (CA)
Dina Titus (NV)
Ann Kirkpatrick (AZ)
Raul Ruiz (CA)
Gloria Negrete McLeod (CA)
Ann McLane Kuster (NH)
Beto O'Rourke (TX)
Tim Walz (MN)

One question, folks: WHERE THE HELL WERE YOU?

Benishek (MI) was elected as a tea partier but practically ran into the arms of the establishment.

If you're going to be a national party, there are some things you should be against, but there's got to be some things you're for, like health care or immigration or energy or education."

Same old Bob.

“...VA a ‘disaster’ that needs a shake-up”......

That's only the tip of the iceberg. I would bet the farm that if truth be known, there are MANY, MANY gubmint departments that need house cleaning and “shaking up”.
It will not happen UNTIL the American people have had enough. When we have so many apathetic people who have no idea nor any desire to make changes, it will continue to be “more of the same”.
