Anything is better than the LIES these Dem's have told over and over trying to make all Americans believe them.

If you like your doctor you can keep him, if you like your insurance you can keep it.

The Headline couldnt be truer.
Another bout of the failed Contract with America. There is not an original idea within the whole Republican Party. they've managed to dig out a Newt favorite.

The mythical scandals have been a total waste as a GOP campaign strategy. Proof is the unveiling of another Contract run.

Everything is NOT A POLITICAL CAMPAIGN like it is for Obama. The GOP is looking for answers for our VETERAMS - which Obama could care less about. Our veterans are dying because they cannot get medical treatment and you can rest assured Obama did not want anything said until after he got his Obamacare passed. Obamacare and what the Veterans now have will BE THE SAME THING for the people of America. Obama knew about this problem and kept it quiet - it was the whistle blowers for the veterans that had enough and took it to the news.

Seems people are more concerned about individual 'freebies', rather than individual freedom.

Republicans have never given a damn about foot troops or veterans until campaigning. None at the center now are Veterans

One only has to look at the string of Republican regressive legislation reversed by the court to see who has disstain for individual liberties

The condition of the VA was exposed at Walter Reed under Bush in 2006. It wasn't so important to you all then.

BS it was not a bed of roses but our veterans were not put on list and then have the list thrown away. It did not take 3 years to see a doctor.

This was part of Obama's campaign speech - look at all he has done with all he promised. His Presidential years were spent Campaigning, playing golf and vacationing, when he was not kissing the hands of the foreign countrymen - 6 year and counting

You stupid lying cow.

Vets have been put on lists for DECADES.

I was put on a a list to make an appoint (3 months) to make an appoint with a doctor (6 months) back in the 70s.

The reason you ugly fat lying cow the wait period has gone UP is because of the hundreds of thousands of new vets BUSH put into the system including close to 100,000 vets with significant injuries WITHOUT BUILDING THE va SUPPORT NEEDED.

PS: you fat ugly cow... the **********REPUBLICANS********* * blocked the bill this February that would have added 27 facilities to treat the vets.
