I'm getting just a little tired of this script:
THIS…after these guys voted time and again NOT to increase funding to help veterans in any way, even after the last two prolonged wars badly increased the necessity for such help. Send these poor folks to fight your wars, then ignore them when they get home. Unfortunately, this is not new folks:
"Questions are being raised about the new commander in charge of the Army's Walter Reed Army Medical Center, a day after the previous general in charge was fired.
The paper described a medical bureaucracy that left hundreds of wounded Iraqi vets wading through mountains of paperwork as they tried to obtain medical care. The Post also reported on the poor condition of rooms used by some veterans receiving treatment at the hospital."
And Vice President Dick Cheney's comments at the time: "There will be no excuses, only action."
Now, after screaming of days for Shineski's removal. (Sacrificing another head, as it were)…Boehner and friends say that it "changes nothing."
“The president needs to outline his vision for how do we get to the bottom of the problems at the VA." Yep….just like Cheney and Bush did on their watch.
Again, some things never change folks:
Today with our extremely divided Congress, doing absolutely nothing at all ….don't expect much progress.
