Same Old, Same Old VA
Michelle Malkin on the VA scandal.
Michelle Malkin: “Fifteen years ago, I reported on VA bureaucrats who took better care of administrative buildings and vacant hospitals than their own patients. Back then, an independent General Accounting Office found that the agency was spending more than $1 million a day to sustain unneeded hospital buildings. Another $35 million was squandered annually to perform upkeep on empty space, including unused lots and warehouses, while vets were forced to file malpractice suits over substandard care. … Fifteen years later, it’s the same old, same old. More empty excuses, feckless denials and deadly red tape. The names change, but the game’s the same: ‘Support the troops’ platitudes and photo-ops at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. ‘Screw the troops’ in the bowels of the VA bureaucracy, where book-cookers were busy collecting bonuses instead of saving lives.”
