    He hasn't done anything except go PC with the Military, cut the Military, and tear up the command.
    It was just another political talking point to get elected, he really had no intention (I'm sure) to do any of it as long as it got him a few more votes.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    The VA and a Congressional Committee faced off a few days ago.

    Congressmen on both sides of the aisle were complaining about a lack of transparency and the VAs refusal to hand over specific documents.

    The VA and the WH dont seem to interested in getting to the bottom of this scandal.

    Obstructionism is one thing the Obama administration is good at, whether its the Benghazi scandal, the IRS scandal or the Gun walking scandal.
    the VA has no authority to claim any privilege. Do you have any source to the VA not complying with any request for information?

    Hey MMC, what's up? Rumsfeld had a annoying habit of not listening to the people who actually knew what they were talking about.

    But you said "this" has been going on for a long time. Since the scandal is about the falsification of documents, that is what I thought you were talking about.

    So you do not know if the falsification has been going on for longer that the Obama administration?

    Maybe you should tell them that, because you can YouTube the Congressional hearings and tell pretty quickly that the Committee isn't getting the information they've requested.

    As usual, when there is scandal, a labor union is involved.

    I don't blame the problem on any one person, but I do blame one person for claiming he'd fix it only to let it become even worse during his regime.
