Posted on 05/24/2014 12:36:18 PM PDT by blueyon
Responding to the ever-widening "secret death list" Veterans Affairs (VA) scandal, on of the Senate's leading liberals has not only blocked legislation aimed at fixing fundamental problems within the VA's health care system, he's also let little doubt to exactly how he feels of the accusation that scores of vets have died due to administrative cover-ups that have resulted in medical care being needlessly withheld. As reported by The Washington Free Beacon on May 22, 2014, Vermont's junior US Senator, Bernard "Bernie" Sanders, has effectively frozen in committee the Veterans Affairs Management Accountability Act (VAMAA), which was aimed at giving the Secretary of Veterans Affairs sweeping power in clearing out bureaucratic dead wood.
In what many veterans reasonably take as adding insult to injury, the Green Mountain State's senator very matter-of-factly said in a CNN interview (via News Busters) earlier this month "people die every day," giving the distinct impression he was was making an attempt to downplay the 40 patients deaths earlier this month in the VA's Phoenix, Arizona facility.

Cold Reply. Someday he will die and have to face his maker. His name should be remembered next time he runs for any office. Maybe this is the whole view of the Demoncrat Party.
The Democrats’ War On Vets.
Liberals have no problems with certain people dying. We all know that.
The true mentality of a Stalinist.
It’s idiots like this that will be deciding whether you or a family member lives or dies with ObamaCare.
Liberals are fine with certain people dying as long as those people who are dead don’t vote Dem..liberals only have the phony outrage on death(like with Sandy Hook) when they can use it to their advantage..”People die everyday” Okie Dokie, maybe those Dem senators need to take one for the team and drop dead, then we can say “Hey, people die everyday”
The Commie RATS. The Party of Death. People die every day. They’re just not doing it fast enough to shut the DemocRATS up.
Dying’s not the problem - living in pain 24 hours a day is the problem.
Until this is figured out all democrats should be denied medical care for 48 hours... let them see what pain feels like..
I will not venture a comment on this socialist because there is nothing one can say regarding this nitwit that would not be deleted before it appeared.
“Democrats War on Vets” Thats perfect!
We gotta repeat the hell out of that and make it stick
Somebody get that to Limbaugh or Beck et.al.
And yet they continue to elect people like you who contribute to the death of people every day.

Liberals don’t care if their constituency dies either, because generally, this doesn’t affect their constituents’ ability to vote.
The people of Vermont must be very proud!
Well there you have!
Plain as the nose on your face, LOL
Let a Republican make a comment like that and all hell breaks loose.
These dems couldn’t even read THREE PAGES .. yet they could pass ObamaCare with it’s 2500 pages.
They really do believe we’re stupid.
“Unbelievable that people would even vote to elect such people!”
Yes. Now let us add to the picture the fact that they think we are bad people, evil, uncaring, greedy, full of hate, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.
These people can not be reasoned with. Period.
Every now and again one recovers, but it’s never clear why.
Cold hearted crass crude old coots could care less about you and your family.. And our veterans.
“They really do believe were stupid.”
Mediocrity knows nothing better than itself. (A.C. Doyle)
This means they are incapable of seeing that many people are smarter than they, so anyone who disagrees with them must be stupid.
