You really are as stupid as everyone says aren't you. I guess you are so dense as to think that putting a couple million more vets to an already overloaded and underfunded VA system that has no bearing. Bush was no friend of us Vets, in many ways including the VA.
How many times do you get called stupid daily? All your egomaniacal attempts to act superior to other posters seem to back fire. Maybe, you are a slow learner.

But, but, Bush idiocy again.

The Congress is in charge of the budget. The Dems in the Senate --who has been in control for almost 8 years---are the ones who failed to provide monies.

Lie of the century:

9/28/02 Bush's address to nation: "The Iraqi regime possesses biological and chemical weapons, is rebuilding the facilities to make more, and, according to the British government, could launch a biological or chemical attack in as little as 45 minutes after the order is given."

Second place:

In a speech on August 26, 2002, Vice President Dick Cheney flatly asserted that "there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction."

Karl Rove continued on Wednesday to defend the remarks he made about Hillary Clinton's medical issues even as he played down her "traumatic brain episode" as a "minor" issue for a potential 2016 campaign.

The Republican strategist caused a stir when the New York Post reported over the weekend that Rove suggested the former secretary of state suffered a "traumatic brain injury." That reported comment was widely mocked and dismissed by Democrats, including White House spokesman Jay Carney, former President Bill Clinton and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

"Now, is this going to be the issue of the 2016 presidential campaign if she runs?" Rove told Fox News' Sean Hannity. "No, it's going to be a minor thing."

Still, Rove said that Clinton will need to be more forthcoming about her health records if she launches a presidential bid. He cited former Vice President Dick Cheney, whose doctors gave a press conference after he had a defibrillator put into his heart in 2001, as an example. He also said the New York Times had ripped Bill Clinton in a 1996 editorial for being the "least cooperative" presidential candidate in releasing his health records.

A Clinton spokesman had responded to Rove's reported "brain injury" comment by assuring that the former secretary of state was at "100 percent."

"Karl Rove has deceived the country for years, but there are no words for this level of lying," the spokesman told the New York Post.

Hannity did point out to Rove that Clinton spent just 4 days in the hospital in 2012 for treatment of a blood clot, not 30 days as Rove said in his reported remarks.

Gee, Grey Ghost uses the exact same words. Well, name stealing sock, Grey Ghost, maybe you Democrats shouldn't have voted for the war when you were for the war before you wee against the war for purely political reasons.
Maybe you should also focus on the Gulf of Tonkin and how LBJ & Democrats lied to get us into a war where 50,000+ American kids died for a war we lost where a Republican ended it and brought our kids home, hypocrite lowlife.
Maybe you should focus on how yet another agency under the corrupt Obama Regime is abusing power, lying and screwing the vets right "NOW" as we speak instead of deflecting like you lapdog Obama commies always do.
The place for you is as a subject in North Korea. You ibtards would fit right in there!

Every time the Congress uses its' oversight obligation, you are right there whining that there shouldn't be any.
Right now the Oversight Committee is stating the admin is stonewalling releasing Obamacare figures--you will be shortly complaining they have NO right to them.
You were even lame enough to complain about the group that got the FOIA emails as if it changed anything in Lerner's email to DC that targeted the Tea Party.
lol! I wish you knew what you were talking about.

Then it might make some sense... never mind logic!!!

You really need to stop having abortions; that might solve at least one of your many and varied sexual problems.

We always have an increase of vets after any war They did not decide to deal with this influx the way the current VA has.
This group of Vets didn't suddenly happen but has occurred over 10 years, so I am not buying this was sudden and unforeseen.
The VA has some answering to do and the excuse making does not change any of it.
Again, without the wars, the overcrowding would be significantly less. So you agree that the Bush administration should have expanded the VA system when they decided to go into two wars & yet they neglected to do so.
These hidden lists did not affect the care given at the VA. They hid the actual severity of the actual backlog. The VA hospitals were under great pressure to improve their backlogs. Some chose to cheat the system by using gimmicks to hide the extended times it took to get appointments.
Congress knew about how severe the backlogs were & few steps were taken to help the problem. It was unfortunate that some chose to cheat the system to overstate improvement.
This should be investigate to find out who cheated the system but also to find a way either to increase the capacity at the VA hospitals or send the soldiers to private care at government expense.
When people talk about cutting entitlement spending, they include the VA system. The costs from the Vietnam War have not yet peaked. We also have climbing costs from Desert Storm, Afghanistan & Iraq.
So Iraq & Afghanistan are relevant to the backlogs at the VA hospitals.
