White House knew about VA hospital problems for years

'In the documents, officials from the Department of Veterans Affairs cautioned the incoming Obama team, stating that the waiting times being reported by veterans facilities around the country may not be accurate.

“This is not only a data integrity issue in which [Veterans Health Administration] reports unreliable performance data; it affects quality of care by delaying — and potentially denying — deserving veterans timely care,” the documents read, as quote by the Times.

Although various VA facilities are implicated by the documents’ contents, the issue exploded recently when an employee came forward and claimed that at least 40 patients in Phoenix, Arizona, died waiting for an appointment at the local veterans hospital. As RT reported earlier this month, several whistleblowers came forward to say that thousands of patients were placed on secret, unofficial waiting lists in order to conceal how long they had been delayed. If they died, their names would be removed quietly.'

This is something the Obama administration was told about during the transition in 2008. They can't say they just found out.

But when will everybody realize this is the "single payer system" all the Liberals want? This is Government run health care! This is what Obamacare will be if the Left gets their way.

Who in their right mind would look at this and say this is where we should go?
