Veterans Affairs - Time For Justice Department Involvement

As we honor members of our military, on Memorial Day, that have made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our freedom, we see a Scandal at the Veterans Affairs Department of the federal government charged with providing medical care for our VETS.  It is shameful.  If this was only incompetence, perhaps just Heads Should Roll.   But it is becoming abundantly clear that there has been criminal activity at many Veterans medical facilities as bureaucrats have "cooked the books" in order to earn bonuses that would not have otherwise occurred if certain metrics were not met. 

That is criminal fraud requiring jail time.   Even though the Inspector General is attempting to get at the facts, only the Justice Department can convene a Grand Jury and pursue criminal penalties.   This is not just about FIRING the guilty; though that should absolutely happen, this is about prosecuting criminal wrong doing.  Further, this is just another example of big government incompetence.   The VA is Socialized medicine and we see the end result; rationing, poor service and pre-mature deaths.  Vets should be given a choice of accessing government medical care, or when it is poor, getting vouchers to seek out care in the private system at government expense.   We owe our VETS that much. 

Socialist President Pinocchio Obama and his minions in the Administration claim they learned about all the shenanigans going on at the Veterans Affairs Department from the media.  Shame on them.  And, it is a bunch of baloney.  Problems at the Veterans Affairs Department have been going on for years despite a 60% increase in funding during the Obama Presidency.  The fact is that no one is minding the store; but then that is the case related to many Departments of the federal government.   Further, Obama has never run anything in his life so he has no clue how to be a good manager.   Hence the reason for the unprecedented number of Obamanista Scandals; that always seem to be a surprise, or so he says, to this incompetent President. 

In any case, it is time for Liar Attorney General Eric Holder to do his job.   But don't count on it.  Holder is a defender of government incompetence because this involves big union supporters.  Holder is not about to prosecute some of these bureaucrats, that may very well be federal government union members.   Sadly, it is just not going to happen.
