Another week, another Obama scandal. Officials at various Veterans Administration hospitals have reported inaccurate waiting times and kept secret lists from the Inspectors General. The Obama administration was made aware of this problem back in 2008 but Obama's spokesperson Jay Carney maintains that the President learned about this problem on the news like everyone else. As many as 1000 veterans have died since 2001 while waiting for medical treatment.
"In recent months, reports have surfaced about secret wait lists at facilities across the country and, in the case of a Phoenix VA facility, accusations that officials cooked the books to try to hide long wait times. Some families said veterans died while on a secret wait list at the Phoenix facility."
He KNEW! Obama told of Veterans Affairs health care debacle as far back as 2008
"The number of dead veterans could total more than 1,100 from 2001 through the first half of 2013 -- including 16 at the Dayton VA Medical Center and 11 at the Cincinnati VA -- according to records obtained via Freedom of Information Act."
"Inspectors found that three of 10 gastroenterology referrals they reviewed at one medical center had left veterans waiting 140 to 210 days. Four of 10 physical therapy referrals at another medical center took 108 to 152 days "with no apparent action taken to schedule an appointment for the veteran.""
'Delay in treatment' a factor in more than 100 deaths at VA centers
Will President Obama hold anyone accountable? He hasn't with the rollout of Obamacare; he didn't with Benghazi or the IRS, but maybe this time will be different.
