Fireworks on the Hill: 'Ma’am, Ma’am, Ma’am, Ma’am ...Veterans Died. Get Us the Answers, Please!'

WASHINGTON FREE BEACON: Rep. Jeff Miller (R., Fla.) grew impatient Wednesday during a late Veterans Affairs committee hearing while interviewing the VA’s assistant secretary for congressional and legislative affairs Joan Mooney.

Shown on Fox News Channel’s On the Record, Miller asked why the committee had not been told who was disciplined for misconduct in Augusta, Ga., and Columbia, S.C., where “nine veterans died because they were on a waiting list for colonoscopies.”

Mooney began to respond that her office had responded to more than 100,000 requests for information, before Miller cut her off.

“Ma’am, ma’am, ma’am, ma’am,” he said. “Veterans died. Get us the answers, please!”

“I understand that, Mr. Chairman, and I will look,” she replied.

“That’s what you said three months ago!” Miller exclaimed. “This has been going on since January. "
