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 in clearing out bureaucratic dead wood.
To listen to conservative media watchers, the overwhelming number of news organs are normally less than objective when it comes to basic journalistic objectivity when it comes to reporting on anything relating to Barack Obama. Even the usually a reliable ally to the White House, Politico.com on May 21, 2014 has dropped an S-bomb regarding the spreading-like-wildfire Veterans Affairs (VA) controversy. Per Politico’s headline, the situation has officially been deemed a “scandal.”
As the old advertisement for Morton Salt use to go, “When I Rains, It Pours.” Barack Obama may know how the little girl with the umbrella feels. Just days ago it was made public that the White House had rock solid evidence that Usama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda terrorists were essentially the godfathers for the Boko Haram Islamists, but Obama’s Administration still fought at every step to have Boko Haram declared a foreign terrorist organization. Now in the wake of the ever burgeoning Veterans Affairs (VA) “death list” scandal, The Washington Times is reporting on May 18, 2014 that the Obama-Biden transition team was warned in 2008 that there were problems with the VA’s outpatient scheduling and the administrative procedures for setting waiting times.
