    The GOP has gotten the military and veterans votes since 1972.

    Why do you think the Dems tried to have the military absentee votes thrown out and demanded recounts in heavy retired military precincts ?

    Remember when Obama wanted to end Tri-Care for those serving in the military claiming since they weren't drafted and volunteered they should pay for their own health care. Why doesn't the MSM remind America about that ?

    Military Veterans of All Ages Tend to Be More Republican

    Iraq and Afghanistan veterans prefer George W. Bush to Barack Obama as commander in chief, according to a Washington Post-Kaiser Family Foundation poll.

    >"Sixty-five percent of post-9/11 veterans say that Bush was a good commander in chief while just 42 percent say the same of Obama..."<

    War vets miss commander in chief George W. Bush

    I wonder why the reporters even show up for Carney's press sessions. There is no reason to believe anything he says. I was born during the Roosevelt administration so I've heard a lot of press secretaries. This one lies more than the others combined. it is truly insane. The administration has been aware of the VA problem since the beginning. The prior administration warned them about it. They didn't fix it either. Let's shut the down the VA and simply buy private insurance policies for the veterans. It would save us a lot of money and provide better health care for the veterans.

    These kinds of broad generalizations and frankly imbecilic declarations are a matter of routine with this and other DP members. You figure out who the members giving birth to bromides are pretty quickly I have found. Pursue "discourse" with these types at your extreme leisure as such will be a utter waste of your time otherwise.

    Still, the GOP never gave a damn about veterans. Instead of all that time and money wasted on abortion and Benghazi why didn't congress hold more hearings on the VA ...aka oversight. Oversight is the job is of congress, is it not? So what have the conservatives in congress ever done for or to protect veterans?

    Why do you think the Dems tried to have the military absentee votes thrown out and demanded recounts in heavy retired military precincts ?
    I'm not sure they ever did.

    The GOP doesn't want veterans to have ANY health care at all. Why doesn't FoxNews talk about that?

    For you to ignore one side of a partisan debate exposes the hypocricy and bias in your comment, fmw.

    If you remember, the VA falls under the Executive branch of government and during the past six years any time Congress tried to have oversight of the Executive branch of government the left called it racist.

    JIM ACOSTA, CNN: When was the president first made aware of these problems? Of these fraudulent lists that were being kept to hide the wait times, when was he first made aware of those problems? And when did other White House officials, top White House officials, become aware of these problems?

    JAY CARNEY: When you say these problems, the fact that there have been bureaucracies --

    ACOSTA: The delays have been known for some time.

    CARNEY: You mean the specific allegations that I think were reported first by your news network out of Phoenix, I believe. We learned about them through the reports. I will double check if that is not the case.


    You can see the exchange here:

    Carney: White House Learned About VA Scandal From News Reports | Video | RealClearPolitics
    If he is learning all his information from the news then I think he can save the tax payers some money by firing all his advisers/aids.Just leave the whitehouse tvs on different news channels all day.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Perhaps you forgot that "Oversight" for the VA falls under the jurisdiction of congress .........

    Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations (O&I) | House Committee on Veterans' Affairs

    How many hearings and investigations did they have to see if the VA was reducing the waiting list back log?

    Reminds me when G.W. Bush tried to increase Congress oversight on Fannie and Freddie and Senator Obama filibustered the bill.
