The scandal over the Veterans Health Care system just keeps getting bigger. Even so, many politicians point to the VA as a good example of a nationwide government program that we should emulate elsewhere.
Hillary Clinton suggested when husband Bill was president that the VA was a good example for national healthcare, as did Bernie Sanders during his run for the presidency this year. But it seems there is not a large scale government program that is not rife with corruption, inefficiency, and ineptitude. Add to that the payroll, benefits and bonuses that government employees somehow “earn,” and it is easy to see why we have a Federal budget that is completely out of control.
The corruption that is found throughout the VA is shocking. The recent revelations showing that as many as 1/3 of the veterans die while waiting to be enrolled in the program, and the outrageous excuses that are given are beyond the pale. All the while, performance bonuses are handed out to VA executives to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars each, and it is hard to believe that people are not losing their jobs left and right over their ineptitude and dishonesty as they deny service to our vets.
Occasionally, however, even the government gets caught and an intrepid judge will make an example of one of these government “workers.”

Trump has approx…..$2 million in his war chest and employs maybe 100 people and managed to garner close to 300 million in in free media. . Hillary has close to $42 million on hand and employs 700 people and has only managed a 3 to 5 percent lead in the polls that is a sad return for the amount of energy and money spend can you imagine what she will do if she gets ahold of the economy. This is another example of why we need Trump he does not need 42 million to win he does not p**s resources away who will be the better guardian of the economy Trump and he will not reach into your pockets needlessly just to redistribute your savings to illegals, radicals, or the free stuff generation…!. Trump continues to step over the lines in the sand put their by the GOP and others rino ryan you need to get to a shelter now cause the TrumpNado is headed your way dumbass..!
Anypo litician that points the VA health system as a giid example of great medical service is a certified nut! They do now do well in real medical problem areas, like PTSD!!
Put him in prison along with his cohorts in crime
NO,,, he did this as an official under the public TRUST. He is a treasoner and needs to be hanged. AND, hus estate needs to be seized, so his family does not benefit from his treason.
Why does that surprise me, probably because as usual someone was getn a fat salary for not doin their job…shame our warriors have to pay the price for your incompetence.
Doesn’t make any difference Obama pardon all his hacks
Its a complete sham.
Slap on the wrist big deal
