This is wonderful news and all you Beto bashers out there need to apologize because he truly is looking out for the vets.

All we need now is a peanut vender!

I want my doctor,
I like my doctor,
SCRAP Obammacare,

Repeal or resign...

My brother in law is waiting 4 years for his army discharge process,
Whenever the Feds get involved,
It's a camera show or SNAFU!

It takes extra long for the section 8 paperwork - that's probably why.

EVERY member of congress is going to be looking for their own soapbox to shout their message to the masses. Actually it is time for them to put up or STFU. The VA System is broken, it has been broken for many years. Veterans are told to shut up and wait for everything they should be recieving. Disability claims waiting time have been REDUCED to 14 months. WOW, I'm impressed. NOT! AT BEST, you are supposed to see a healthcare provider within 14 days of any appointment you have made. A goal that apparently is impossible for the little fifedoms that we call VA Medical Centers to meet. Their inability to meet such a simple goal has not prevented those who work under the Senior Executive Service from recieving their just rewards. We have already seen at least a half dozen top management employees at failing Medical Centers who have recieved huge performance bonuses, some even AFTER their failures have been identified. By the VA's own records it appears that, at minimum, hundreds of Veterans have DIED waiting for treatment. Those responsible need to fired, lose all of their retirement benefits and be prosecuted.

Congressman Francis O'Rourke doesn't care about veterans. He is simply playing the part the way all politicians do around reelection time. Come December and Robert Francis O'Rourke will go back to giving a hoot about our vets.

As election gets closer and closer,
And national results strike the nerves of these parasites,
The reality of needing to get a real job
looms on the not too distant horizon,
They panic...

Rightfully so!

The entire VA system is such a shambles,
Like all the dum o Krat programs,
That theynALL need scrapping.

The VETS should be able to go to ANY AMERICAN HOSPITAL FOR CARE and just show their HONORABLE discharge documents for expedited admission.

Their service should clearly put them AHEAD of line jumping
IllLegals!
