I agree with you 100%. But I dont think the vets will get anything more than the usual mushroom treatment. The powers that be only want to cover up the mess, not actually do anything about it.

There for a while, Mountain Home VA was actually acting more professional, like they should have been all along. But that was just while the VA scandal was big in the national news.

Just as soon as Phil Roe got appointed to the VA oversight board, you could feel the change for the worse. It was like a cold, icy hand around the throat.

Now the VA knows it can go back to treating the veterans like crap, because Phil Roe will ensure that any veteran complaints wont go anywhere except into the waste basket.

Any veteran or vet family member who votes for Roe is a fool

He meets with the wrong people to see if Veterans were getting the care they earned the rich do not serve or if they did would not have to go to the VA for care as they can afford the best with the ROE/Republican tax breaks to the rich and all .

I saw the wjhl report of his meeting with veterans, where the questions were pre-screened. Certain questions were allowed to be asked.

I guess the ones that werent too inconvenient, were the ones that his press agent and media handlers allowed.

What a joke.

Roe isnt going to lift a finger to helt the veterans, or to try to look into the VA scandal.

All we will get from him is a weak, and useless, dog and pony show for the cameras.

Speaking of WJHL, remember back in the 1930s, when there were such things as investigative reporters?

Too bad we dont have any around now, isnt it?

Yes the rich folks didn't care the VA was acting conservative with the funds so they didn't tell ROE what was going on or he just didn't care .

I heard a Roe add on the radio today, and most of it was spent bragging on what a good job the VA here was doing.

And yet, the vets that go there tell of the many complaints they have sent to Roe. They get the old "We;ll check on it and get right back with you" reply.

They never get any response from Roes office.

And now the cutesy radio add from Roe.

It just shows how out of touch he is with veterans, and how little concern he is going to show veterans.

But, that guy Hartley is running against Roe. There is still time to get a new Republican in Roes seat. The primary aint over yet.

And Lamaar Alexander,now there is another guy who needs to be voted out.

Carr is running against him for the Republican primary.
