As republikans in congress raise holy hell pointing fingers at the VA director, here is what republikans are doing behind the scenes: Cutting the Va budget AND
Last week, Congress forced the Pentagon to make budget cuts that increased living costs for our service members. Our service members are faced with a budget that would raise their grocery prices at commissaries by at least 20% and force military families to pay an additional 5% out-of-pocket for housing.

As republikans in congress raise holy hell pointing fingers at Benghazilla, they are stay totally quiet about themselves having cut funds to embassy security.

VA Care End Eyed for 1.3 Million Vets

Budget Panel Eyes End to VA Care for 1.3 Million Vets

The House Budget Committee, chaired by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), has told a veterans' group it is studying a plan to save $6 billion annually in VA health care costs by cancelling enrollment of any veteran who doesn't have a service-related medical condition and is not poor.

Committee Republicans, searching for ways to curb federal deficits and rein in galloping VA costs, are targeting 1.3 million veterans who claim priority group 7 or 8 status and have access to VA care.

Priority group 8 veterans have no service-connected disabilities and annual incomes, or net worth, that exceed VA means-test thresholds and VA "geographic income" thresholds, which are set by family size.

Priority Group 7 veterans also have no service-connected disabilities and their incomes are above the means-test thresholds. But their incomes or net worth fall below the geographic index. In other words, because of where they live, in high cost areas, they likely struggle financially.

Joseph Violante, national legislative director for Disabled American Veterans, said he first learned of the committee's interest in possibly narrowing access to VA clinics and hospitals from a DAV member from Wisconsin, chairman Ryan's home state.

One way to reign in galloping veterans disability costs would be to stop having wars started for fake reasons .

At the time the warmongering Bush administration was starting one stupid war after another, I remember reading article after article warning that not only were the wars insane but that it would devastate our VA system for generations to come. But still the RW lemmings smacked those yellow ribbons on the backs of their SUVs and called all of us "traitors" who were against their stupid wars.

Now when I hear some RW airhead lambaste Shinseki I want to vomit. First they choose an idiot like Bush for president, who admitted years before that if he ever became president he would go after and "get" Saddam Hussein, and then they whine when the result of their idiotic choice for president is a VA crisis for America for decades to come.

This crisis is not Shinseki's fault. It's the Bush administration's fault. All those pro-Israel warmongers like Rumsfeld, Cheney, Wolfowitz, etc.....they are all war criminals.

Shinseki is a bad appointment.
Bush invaded the wrong country.
Hillary also voted to invade the wrong country.
Emotions were running high.
But, Hillary wasn't the President.

Has anyone seen a photo of the little weasel who the GOP picked to head their ridiculous political theater fiasco on Benghazi?

If ever there were a more perfect weasel to play the part of a perfect GOP weasel, I don't know who that weasel would be.

"WASHINGTON, May 18 (Reuters)- The Republican who will lead an investigation of the 2012 attacks on U.S. diplomatic quarters in Benghazi was known for courtroom theatrics in his time as a prosecutor, portending dramatic hearings on an issue that already has strained partisan civility in Washington."

Republicans.....proving themselves nothing more than hypocrites every single day.

Which brings up an interesting point.
Is Hillary C. a war criminal?
I say no.
Neither is Bush. Bush was/is stupid.
What about the Secretary of Defense?
And the vice?

Whitewater was an expensive partisan fiasco.
I'd still be pi**ed about that, were I a democrat.
The "birther" incident was another fiasco.
So, I can see why democrats are touchy about Benghazi, and the IRS scandal.
Make no mistake, that South Carolina boy intends to make a name for himself, for future political benefit.
Despite his unfortunate hairstyle!

Surely you don't expect these RWers to own up to the facts of history and their effect on today's veterans, do you, Victoria?

How can you place a Senator in the same category as a President who pushed the War effort with false information and lies?
