And you would be a lowlife political hack that sees only RED and BLUE.. By the way idiot what do you call a real veteran??? Certainly not an azzhole clueless twit like you. I spent 21 years and earned my keep but I don't have to depend on the VA. "Stay out of your way" You are obviously a joke bagger. More than likely a chickenhawk.
Your 21 years of incarceration in federal prison does not count.

Really Carol? The Republicans were pushing for VA funding in 2005? Here's an article published in the LA Times dated April 13, 2005;
WASHINGTON — Republicans on Tuesday defeated a Democratic effort to provide almost $2 billion in additional healthcare funding for veterans, rejecting claims that Veterans Affairs hospitals were in crisis.
The proposal was part of an $80.6-billion emergency spending bill for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and other military costs. The bill is slightly less than the $82 billion President Bush sought and the $81.4 billion approved by the House.
Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) proposed providing $1.98 billion in additional funding for veterans' care. She said VA hospitals were underfunded and overcrowded. "There's a train wreck coming," Murray warned.
Republicans denied that the VA facilities had such serious problems. They noted that the Bush administration had said the additional funding wasn't needed and that it had enough money to cope with emergencies.
Murray's proposal was defeated in a 54-46 vote, mostly along party lines.
Republicans were eventually embarrassed into providing more funding and the Democrats did vote for it.
More recently Republicans have tried to balance the budget by cutting VA funding;
, Feb. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/— On Monday, February 14, House Republicans introduced a Continuing Resolution (H.R. 1) to fund the federal government for the last seven months of the fiscal year while cutting $61 billion in current year spending. The bill proposes to cut $2.6 billion in funding provided to care for America’s veterans.
However since 2007, the Democratic Congress increased health care funding to begin to address the uphill battle of providing appropriate care and access to all generations of veterans. These resources allowed VA to better immediately address needs of returning veterans, expand access, increase support for veteran caregivers, address the urgent mental health care needs of veterans, expand veteran homelessness prevention and care, and invest in research for maladies attributed to military service.
Why are you such a damned liar
Bush's war was fought of the books funded by cash rather than accrual accounting procedures. There were no provisions for the replacement of equipment, ordinance or "future veterans health care."

Many in congress saw it coming, McCain for instance__the VA was overwhelmed.

All the accrued costs as well as the interest were handed off to Obama.

Once again Carol, you've proven that you have the reading comprehension of a gerbil. You seem to have missed these parts;
1. The backlog initially expanded as a result of VA raising its own standards.
On the January afternoon Eric Shinseki took over as the nation’s seventh VA secretary, he inherited a mess.
To his immediate front, the former Army chief of staff faced a paper mountain of 391,127 separate disability claims—filed by veterans from every conflict since World War II. Nearly a quarter of the claims (more than 85,000) had been languishing in the system for more than six months.
The gravity of this situation in early 2009—with one war ending and another still raging—was not lost on the new boss. Compounding his problem, however, was the fact that he had little to work with in terms of a technological solution. VA was paper-bound, its IT system antiquated—and it had been this way for years.
As if the paper weren’t problem enough, Shinseki and his staff soon learned that thousands of Vietnam War veterans—many with whom he likely served—had been barred from claiming disability benefits for conditions related to their exposure to the toxic defoliant Agent Orange.
He also learned that when a veteran claimed post-traumatic stress related to time in combat, the veteran was obligated to prove that a specific stressor—an event at a certain time and place—had caused the condition. But because many returning veterans weren’t able to prove a specific instance had caused their sleepless nights, irritability, and hyper-vigilance, they were being denied disability benefits.
Shinseki was troubled by both of these. He viewed them as unfair and unjust. So he took action in late 2009, announcing expanded eligibility for those affected by both combat PTSD and Agent Orange.
The backlog happened because the VA under Shinseki was attempting to expand services to those who had been unfairly denied benefits. To you that's a bad thing?
The article also states that the backlog is in fact shrinking.
But go ahead keep blaming big government as though fewer VA workers would have made the situation any better. The fact is that government was too small to deal with this.
And without the hundreds of volunteer groups such as www.agentorangequiltoftears.com the backlogs would have been even worse.

"Compounding his problem, however, was the fact that he had little to work with in terms of a technological solution. VA was paper-bound, its IT system antiquated—and it had been this way for years".
The entire f-ing government is "paper" bound, whether it is a stack of paper on a desk or in a computer. And the stupid f-ing rules and bureaucracy that goes with this government is a bigger roadblock. The VA should have started using private hospitals and care systems YEARS ago, probably when LBJ was overwhelming the system with Vietnam and their hospitals and clinics sold to major hospital systems like the Methodists, Catholics, Baptists, and major independents. There are around 22-million veterans living today and the majority are not using the VA Health System, yet the VA is overwhelmed. Here's some news for you: Medicaid and Medicare has the same problems as the VA and if you socialist get your way, explain how an inefficient government health care service is going to handle 321 million people? What has happened at the VA is men were killed by greedy government employees doing whatever it too to get a bonus and the man responsible was f-ing off and not wandering around, didn't have inspectors out finding out how things were being done, and didn't listen to the complaints of the troops or their survivors. Another Obama department out of control, because of the Imbecile in Chief. He needs a massive stroke--maybe that would wake him.

I'm a good member who made a mistake and I'm apologizing and I'm asking for forgiveness," stated Donald Sterling in an interview with Anderson Cooper.

Cooper managed to land a sit-down with the billionaire owner of the Los Angeles Clippers. The interview will air Monday on CNN.

Sterling, who was caught on a recording making racist comments during a conversation with his girlfriend V. Stiviano, told Cooper, "I'm not a racist." He continued, "I made a terrible mistake. I'm here to apologize."

"Am I entitled to one mistake, am I after 35 years? I mean, I love my league, I love my partners. Am I entitled to one mistake? It's a terrible mistake, and I'll never do it again," said Sterling.

There is a good chance that Sterling will be unable to sell the team without his wife's agreement.

So, when will the owners, none of whom have any skeletons in their closets, vote to oust this racist pig?

Malloy is digging himself deeper into the business of picking winners, the business where President Obama embarrassed himself by backing a succession of green energy losers that finagled government-subsidized loans before going bankrupt.
So has John 'Boner' Boehner 'dug himself deeper in pickings winners and losers' as he pushes for $2 billion dollars in Government green energy loans for bankrupt nuclear energy company in his own district.(Breibart News called it the "GOP Solyndra) " House Speaker John Boehner attacked the Obama administration for financing failed solar-panel maker Solyndra LLC, saying government shouldn’t pick winners and losers. That hasn’t stopped him from demanding that the U.S. make a winner of a nuclear-fuel plant in Ohio, his home state.

Boehner is backing a $2 billion Energy Department loan guarantee sought by USEC Inc.(USU) for its American Centrifuge Plant in Piketon, Ohio, aimed at enriching uranium for commercial nuclear reactors.

“When it comes to emerging energy technologies, the Republicans don’t want to pick winners and losers -- unless it’s nuclear power,” Ellen Vancko, nuclear energy and climate-change project manager in the Washington office of the Union of Concerned Scientists, said in an interview.

Should we really trust Boehner on oversight of tax payer interests after he has proved that he is only wants more of our money going to his Corporate special interests.
