Jackass and Jenny on the VA

Running interference for Obama.

The House passed a bill to make it easier for the VA to fire incompetent managers by a strong bipartisan vote of 390-33. But Barack Obama’s water boy, Bernie Sanders, Chairman of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, is running interference for the administration, and has blocked further action on the House bill. Sanders, the only member of that chamber who openly identifies as “Socialist,” said, “Some of us are old-fashioned enough to know that maybe folks in the Senate might want to know what is in the bill before we voted on it.” Apparently he’s more “old fashioned” than then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who infamously said of the ObamaCare legislation, “We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it.” Also doing her part this week to deflect responsibility for the VA scandal from Obama to his predecessor, Pelosi declared, “Maybe when we going to war we should be thinking about its consequences and ramifications. You would think that would be a given but maybe it wasn’t.” The real reason Democrats are stalling on this legislation is to protect their government union constituency.
