Unfit to serve: Hillary just made OUTRAGEOUS claim about VA scandal
Remember last year when news of the Veterans Administration scandal broke? Appointments records across the board were systematically manipulated to show veterans were getting timely treatment when in fact they weren’t. Veterans died as a result of not getting treatment. And as a result, then-secretary Eric Shinseki was forced to resign, as President Obama vowed he would get to the bottom of the issue.
But….according to Hillary Clinton, it wasn’t really such a big deal after all. In fact, it was all kind of exaggerated by those rascally Republicans.
As The Hill reports, “Democratic primary front-runner Hillary Clinton says the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) scandal is not as “widespread” of a problem as coverage would indicate.
She said the problem is real, but cautioned that “it’s not been as widespread as it has been made out to be” on MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show” on Friday.
The former first lady blamed Republicans for using the issue as part of an “ideological agenda” and said they want the VA to “fail.”
“Now nobody would believe that from the coverage you see, and the constant berating of the VA that comes from the Republicans, in – in part in pursuit of this ideological agenda that they have,” Clinton said.
An “ideological agenda” Mrs. Clinton? You mean that agenda to give our veterans timely, thorough treatment? To make sure those who have sacrificed for our nation and cheated death on the battlefield don’t DIE waiting to see a doctor? THAT ideological agenda?
