Thats funny, Libs where calling for Bush to be impeached and brought up on criminal charges when Walter Reed hospital was found to be a total dump with rats and such. Yet here we are, Vets dying due to lack of care and extreme wait times but not one screech or cry from a Lib about holding Obama responsible..... Hypocrites.

"Unfortunately, given evidence of mismanagement on multiple fronts in Colorado and across the nation, it appears that you have either been shielded from the realities on the ground or have decided to keep your distance from critical issues and delegate site visits to others," Udall told Shinseki in a letter.

Shinseki is blind!!!! Maybe he should be treated by a VA doctor! This has been going on for years!!! And he claims 'no knowledge of how bad this is'?

Blumenthal, a former state attorney general and federal prosecutor, said in an interview that if Shinseki does not seek help from the FBI, "I will almost certainly make the request on my own" to Attorney General Eric Holder and FBI Director James Comey.
Shinseki is afraid of what the FBI will turn out. WHY? The reason why this happened is because Shinseki wants the coverup to stay hidden. Time to shred documents, time for someone to take blame, any excuse to save his butt!!!
If the system is corrupt, let the FBI find that out. What is Shinseki afraid of?
The obvious, I answered my own question.

maybe oblunder the coathanger-in-chief would swing the free private/public hospital ER care the illegals get to the VA hospitals. Anyone that's ever been to a VA emergency room knows what I mean. Veterans cannot walk into a private/public emergency room and expect the VA to cover the many thousands dollar bill unless the visit to the ER is something connected to a service injury or illness. Meanwhile illegals waltz into ERs tying up Drs and services for standard non emergency care and waltz back out not charged a penny. I had to use a public regional hospital for an ER visit because I live 4 hours from the closest VA ER. I had a cardiac event and ended up getting sent to collections by the hospital for over $5000.00 in ambulance and ER services and tests. I had no cardiac condition considered as 'service connected', just bullet and schrapnel wounds so the VA wouldn't cover any of it. And the beat goes on and on.
