According to CNN, at least 40 veterans died while waiting for treatment at one VA hospital in Phoenix. Members of Congress have said in recent weeks that the inspector general investigation is inadequate and have called on the DOJ to launch its own investigation.

However....

Criminal Eric Holder said Tuesday that the Department of Justice doesn't have any plans to investigate allegations that veterans placed on secret waiting lists at VA hospitals died while waiting for care.

If THIS is what the federal government thinks about veterans who have served to keep said government in place - JUST WHAT does it think of the millions Americans who have not?

Good grief!!!

Here's a very disturbing development.....another corrupt VA hospital.......... in Chicago.

It seems that more than one Veteran's hospital is cooking the books....All in the name of "government bonuses"!

VA bonuses were incentive to hide wait times, whistleblowers say

At this point, I'm so beaten-down with news of corruption, dishonesty, lack of integrity, and just plain bs, that I'm really not very surprised anymore. To me, it's unfortunately becoming par for the course and it breaks my heart to see my country fall apart like this...all because of selfish people.

I feel similar.

I would say it's more because of selfish people who have no integrity, who are allowed to violate our Constitution and laws with impunity, by a lazy disengaged populous, many of whom are also very self-centered to the point of historical ignorance, despite many having Ph.D.'s and advanced educations.

Have we have become a nation of self-centered stupidity?

I agree wm. But I believe that it's so far past the point where action should have been taken, that it will not be taken now, at least on any organized scale. \:\(

Thank you veterans that voted FOR Obama.

You got the change you asked for.

Like Holder said, move along there is nothing to see here.

The American Public is EXACTLY where the progressives want it to be, and have been working 80 years to manipulate.

Progressives have control of the schools.
Progressives have control of the government.
Progressives have control of our monetary system.
Progressives have control of 90% of the media.

Its not the citizens fault that they are a bunch of fools. They have been fed BS since child hood.

Since progressive policy and theory is based on theft and lies, it WILL collapse. It always does.

The real question is HOW will it go down and when?

Can America dismantle enough of the progressive machine to allow a slow recovery?

Or does the Progressive/Keynesian train have too much momentum to stop before it goes off the cliff?

The progressive media model is tanking and the beauty is WHY.

Nobody is behind it. Not conservatives, not Republicans, not tin foil hat wearing kooks. It simply sucks and is being rejected en-mass by the population. The free market is offering cheaper, better options via the internet.
Who needs a New York Times paper when you can get instant news streamed to a smart phone 24-7 ?
FINALLY after 80+ years of media monopoly, we have a choice and "WE" are choosing something other than the progressive propaganda.

Its beautiful, its messy, its freedom !!

Who was it that got mocked for warning us about the death panels? Yep, It was that silly Palin.
American's were fed the lies that "you can keep your Dr." "your rates won't go up" and preexisting conditions will be covered". And, most don't seem to notice, or care.
