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!!!

The rightwing wants to imprison women for having abortions or miscarriages that may be self induced.

All religions fanatics are insane.
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.

The Federal Communications Commission on Thursday voted to propose new rules on “net neutrality,” and asked the public to comment. As soon as the FCC voted, along party lines, to propose the rules, Twitter was flooded with responses about what the proposal means for the Internet.

The net neutrality plan would among other things ban Internet providers from blocking Web sites. It may also result in letting those providers charge sites for faster delivery of service. That has sparked worries the rules could result in “fast lanes” for companies that pay, and that smaller companies would be shut out.

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, an appointee of President Barack Obama’s, said the proposal asks whether and how to prevent paid prioritization.

But there was lots of skepticism after the vote, as well as before.

Quaoar: Planetoid Beyond Pluto

Quaoar is a planetoid that lies beyond Pluto's orbit in the solar system. Its discovery in 2002, as well as subsequent discoveries of other small worlds, led to a new classification and the redefinition of Pluto as a "dwarf planet." Quaoar is probably massive enough to be considered a dwarf planet, but it has not been classified as such yet.

Quaoar lurks in the Kuiper Belt, a group of icy objects beyond Neptune. It is about 42 astronomical units, or Earth-sun distances, away. That's about 4 billion miles (6 billion km)— a billion kilometers more distant than Neptune. It takes about 288 years for Quaoar to go once around the sun in a roughly circular orbit.

Mike Brown and Chadwick Trujillo of the California Institute of Technology found Quaoar using a 48-inch telescope at the Palomar Observatory in California. It showed up as an 18.5-magnitude object moving against the background stars in the constellation Ophiuchus. They suggested the name Quaoar [pronounced kwa-o-ar] after a creation god of the Native American Tongva tribe — the original inhabitants of the Los Angeles basin where Caltech is located. According to legend, Quaoar "came down from heaven; and, after reducing chaos to order, laid out the world on the back of seven giants. He then created the lower animals, and then mankind."

Around the time of its discovery, the Hubble Space Telescope measured the object and found that its diameter was about 800 miles (1,300 kilometers) making it larger than the asteroid Ceres but smaller than Pluto.(Subsequent measurements have found it was slightly less than that, at about 1,092 km or 679 miles.)

"Quaoar is greater in volume than all known asteroids combined. Researchers suspect it's made mostly of low-density ices mixed with rock, not unlike the makeup of a comet. If so, Quaoar's mass is probably only one-third that of the asteroid belt," NASA wrote at the time.

In 2007, Brown announced that Quaoar had a tiny moon. Named for the sky god Weywot, son of Quaoar, the moon is estimated to have only one two-thousandth the mass of its parent. Weywot is likely the result of a collision with Quaoar and another object, Brown wrote.

Hello Dave, Obama has been POTUS for five and half years and you keep pretending-when it is convenient--that he isn't.

Also the Congress is in charge of the budget. The Dems have been in control of the Senate for 7 1/2 years--maybe you should ask them why this wasn't a concern.

The Secretary in charge of the VA disagrees with you. He states he is appalled that some may have died waiting care.

No one has ever made the claim that wars do not create Vets--Dave. The argument is that this is the first time VA employees cooked the books to meet their quotas.
