This is Obama's legacy to Vets. Just another Obama problem that Trump must fix. Obama and his administration lied and tried to hide the problems and the heroes they were letting die


On Memorial Day weekend, VA's problems serving veterans still persist | Circa News - Learn. Think. Do.


With Memorial Day coming up, we take time to honor the members of our military, but a new report shows that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is still failing our service men and women.

When allegations first surfaced about long wait times for U.S. military veterans seeking treatment at Veterans Affairs medical facilities, the Obama administration sought to put the best spin on things.

President Obama himself suggested that, while embarrassing, the problems weren’t a matter of life and death. “The wait times were for folks who may have had chronic conditions, were seeking their next appointment but may have already received service. It was not necessarily a situation where they were calling for emergency services,” he said.

His last VA Secretary Bob McDonald went even further, suggesting the problems were no worse than wait times at a famous amusement park. “When you go to Disney, do they measure the number of hours you wait in line? What is important is, what is your satisfaction with the experience,” McDonald said to bipartisan howls.

Now three years and more than 100 criminal investigations later, there is overwhelming evidence the VA wait times were in fact systematic, consequential and involved a widespread cover-up to hide the denial of timely care.

So it's Obama's problem until Trump fixes it? What if Trump doesn't fix it...is it still Obama's fault?

Trump just spent 9 days visiting the Saudis...When is he going to go to work for American Vets?


Trump's VA Director David Shulkin was confirmed on February 2017. The clock is ticking.

The VA runs on a very tight budget and does the best it can based on what it receives. Republicans have no room to talk...they didn't really care in 2014 when they blocked funding to build more facilities.

That is crap. Vets die while Obama gives managers bonuses. The VA is poorly run and democrats support the system that allows vets to die waiting for care

Hateful democrats show they hate Vets and want them to die
Go change your shorts. You obviously shat in the ones you're wearing.

Plus, it is memorial day and there are democrats who have lost loved ones in wars, too, who post on this site. Show some goddamned respect for once in your pathetic life.
