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.
You are talking Vietnam time - the Veterans were treated like dogs when they came home -instead of being greeted with open arms from the public they were spit on.

Caught in a lie again: Obama has put more into the system than Bush. You know the man who said he would bring them all home and they are still there.

Your response marks you as about 14-YO. Of course most leftists are immature crackpots so you could be 35. Who knows and who cares?

Hillary Clinton has secret lunch with Obama at the White House, not on Presidents schedule; Now how much do you want to keep quiet on Benghazi?

Exclusive: Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi chapter

By MAGGIE HABERMAN | 5/30/14 5:07 AM EDT
Hillary Clinton offers a detailed account of the deadly attack on the American embassy in Benghazi — and a pointed rebuttal to Republican critics who’ve laced into her over the incident — in a much-anticipated chapter of her forthcoming book,“Hard Choices,” obtained by POLITICO.
“Those who exploit this tragedy over and over as a political tool minimize the sacrifice of those who served our country,” Clinton writes in the gripping chapter,“Benghazi: Under Attack.”

That is bullsh!t.

It was Bullsh!t then and is still bullsh!t now.

Give me the name of the soldier who was spit on- when and were.

PS: as I said: the VA has always been known for delays. If you had served and "served" by the VA, you would know this already. Delays are increased when CONGRESS (whose job it is to fund the VA) does not meet the demands they put on the VA by doing things such as starting "wars" and adding hundreds of thousands of new customers and not paying the bills up front.

THE REPUBLICANS REFUSED TO FUND THOSE 27 NEW FACILITIES THAT WOULD HELP THOSE DELAYS. FEBRUARY, THIS YEAR, I DON'T CARE ABOUT VIET NAM OR KOREA OR WWII. FEBRUARY THIS YEAR.

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
This only shows you never stepped into a VA facility and haven't a clue of the wait and conditions that have existed and made worse by the influx of Afghanistan and Iraq Veterans.

You have NO IDEA what happened to us when we landed at the airport. There were protesters standing there with the big old PEACE SIGN, flowing long hair and they spit on us as we walked by calling us killers. You have never talked to a Vietnam Vet about our home coming, otherwise you would know.-

I have a real idea what happened to you. You're still choking on the fact that all your teabag Repub flag waving butt buddies are all chickenhawks. They didn't care enough about this country to even walk on the same side of the street where a recruiting station was. Tell me how tight 5 deferment Cheney and Mittens the draft dodger held you when you came home? You do have a DD214 don't you? They sure don't.

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.
Veterans have to get their medical treatment wit the service enlistment and station, it is done at their military reunions and awards assembly, a local VA or Dr. Is authorized to prescribe and refill on their list to take. Standard life saving measure for heart attack, cancer, stroke, hemorage, brain ulcers (big issue makes more then one brain in head with brain fluid or a tumor)Their chidren suffer from Brain ulcers in the womb, making duplicate organs in body-not all it I rare; although I have 2 brains, 3 hearts, 2 intestinal system, 2 nerve system, 2 muscular systems, 2 rib cages-1 the spine and the main rib cage s broken ad gnarled.

Medications must be authorized as what their reunion medical authorities authorized or prescribed; s it does NOT disrupt micro-device hat monitors vitas and brain chamber and speed of time and thought.

highly illegal to prompt statements, interrogate=unlawful questions out of court that DA and judicial military authorities did not permit, if they are freely disclosing out of Immediate family of DNA proven they are medical duress and should contact their VA authority to get exam or police assistence, help them fill out police report and make arrest on their behalf. MOst haneous crime in all nation as and serves full prosecutions by execution, to unlawfully question a veteran.
