    Why is that silly, ttwtt?
    Because it has absolutely nothing to do with VA medical care. It is a contract/wire fraud conviction involving a "service-disabled veteran-owned small business". Try to keep on topic.

    Fact is Obama knew about problems in 2007, on the campaign trail. Aren't you more disappointed he didn't DO something about it once he was elected? Addressing the issue is just more lip service like we got yesterday, with no urgency, no action, and more faux outrage. The facts show he doesn't care about veterans all the much actually.
    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.

    Reality is they may be both.

    Ok sure, but that has nothing to do with my post you quoted about govt being generally incompetent. It doesnt matter who is in charge. Obama is incompetent and a liar. Duh. So is everyone else in office.

    Obama no longer needs the veterans votes so he has gone back to despising those who served.

    The fact is Obama trusted the people at the VA to care about the vets they serve. He can't control what's in the hearts and minds of every individual, but if they caught committing a crime, he can put them in jail and I suspect that is exactly where these people will go.



    The facts show that Obama cares more about vets than his predecessor ever did.....
