DEMOCRAT blows Hillary’s cover downplaying VA scandal; problems ‘are DEVASTATING and REAL’

Now she’s ticking off the Democrats.

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton has dug a hole for herself after a statement she made on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” Friday that the problems at the Veterans Administration aren’t as bad as they’re made out.

This runs contrary to the facts. The Arizona Republic reported:

The VA scandal erupted in April 2014 when employees at the Phoenix veterans hospital blew the whistle on dangerous delays in patient appointments, phony wait-time data and corrupt management practices. Internal investigations and congressional probes verified the breakdown was not just an Arizona issue, but pervasive throughout the VA’s more than 1,500 hospitals and clinics.

The Office of Inspector General concluded that hundreds of thousands of patients were subjected to unacceptable delays in care, and many died while awaiting appointments; wait-time records were falsified or inaccurate at 70 percent of the VA facilities nationwide; and department leadership was contaminated by bullying, reprisal and a lack of accountability. The public furor forced out VA Secretary Eric Shinseki and other administrators, while prompting the largest reform in department history.


Immediately after Clinton’s appearance aired, the former secretary of state was bombarded with complaints from veterans and Republicans. Now at least one Democrat has joined the throng.

“The problems we’ve seen at the Phoenix VA are devastating and real,” Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, D-Ariz., said in an e-mailed statement to the Arizona Republic. “The VA scandal has nothing to do with partisan politics and everything to do with systemic failure, negligence and lack of accountability.”

The problems at the VA are overblown by the GOP? not hardly. Clinton continues to dig herself deeper and deeper.
