Va care is exactly the same as the Obamacare that Barack has given us.
Thanks for nothing.

If Petzel is found to have been part of the problem, his should be prosecuted and his retirement should be forfeited. The loss of money is the only thing these people understand.

This official was scheduled to retire this year anyway. This whole thing is such a farce. President Obama makes a joke out of the corruption that permeates his entire Administration.

Sacrificial lamb! Someone has to hang so why not him. I am sure they made him some deal under the table. Who else?

Rep. Jeff Miller, chairman of the House Veterans Affairs Committee, said he was "disappointed" by the announcement because it created "the illusion of accountability and progress."

He added, "today's announcement from VA regarding Undersecretary for Health Robert Petzel's 'resignation' is the pinnacle of disingenuous political doublespeak," and that "characterizing this as a 'resignation' just doesn't pass the smell test."
But, this will be kept under the table because NO ONE has the b???? to speak up. I am sure this is some type of deal in the process for Petzel.

Obamacare is about providing healthcare insurance to everyone. Not a bad thing as long as everyone has the choice of who provides their healthcare and choice about where they can go to recieve their care. Most Veterans do not have that choice. They are stuck with an outdated, overburdened system that contains too many people that are concerned about their own egos than the proper care of our veterans.

What you see happening to our veterans today is what will happen to all those that have ObamaScam. Too many ill people, too few doctors. They will be cooking the books, putting people on waiting lists until they are dead, and there is nothing you can do except try to get a waiver somehow so you can get real insurance.
