We owe them more than our gratitude.





Personally, I'm thoroughly ashamed of the way the Washington establishment has allowed the VA to mistreat our vets.

We owe them!!

Hopefully Trump will be able to correct decades of wrong.

Finally something we agree on. Though I doubt Trump will do anything, considering his own party is usually the one that blocks help for vets.

OTOH, both the House and Senate will be full of Republicans who publicly disavowed D. Trump and need to crawl back into his good graces. It would be very smart, during this honeymoon, for him to tackle a warm-puppy issue like reforming the VA. It would reassure his supporters that his heart really beats for the downtrodden and would cement their loyalty: a win-win move.

This is true. Would do a much better job of uniting the country than some of the other things he promised, like taking away people's health care and getting rid of protections for LGBT people.

If he does do anything to make the VA better, he'll have my respect... for that, at least. It's needed to be done for ages.

I'm not placing all the blame on the on the DemoKKKrats but Bernie Sanders and Obama allowed gross corruption and incompetence to flourish. Sanders and Obama deserve every bit of American's condemnation for their own corruption and incompetence. It's a shameful disgrace both failed to fire a single corrupt VA administrator.

The Veterans Scandal on Bernie Sanders’s Watch

Bernie Sanders’s tenure as chairman of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee was characterized by glaring neglect of his oversight responsibilities, allowing the 2014 VA scandal to unfold under his watch, veterans’ rights advocates argue....


Left unsaid however, is that he was the chairman of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, responsible for overseeing the Department of Veterans Affairs, as the scandal erupted.



Dozens of veterans died while waiting for medical care ... possibly leading to dozens more preventable deaths.



He held one-sixth of the hearings on oversight that his House of Representatives counterpart held. Republicans griped that they had made multiple requests for more oversight hearings, but received no response. ...


“The House needed a partner in the Senate to help flesh out the problems at the VA, and unfortunately Bernie Sanders was not that partner.

...


Republicans on the committee signed a letter shortly after the scandal broke, demanding to hold multiple oversight hearings on the VA, and complained that they had requested “multiple oversight hearings since the beginning of the 113th Congress with none of the requested hearings taking place and no response.”



Even as the scandal was breaking, Sanders was challenged for his defense of the VA.

...

It was his progressive worldview that blinded him to the problems of the VA, some veterans advocates argued, and it prevented him from seeing the problem as it emerged.



Sanders, some veterans’ rights workers say, wanted to believe that the VA was a model for government-run health care.



“For years, many people within the progressive movement and the left touted the VA as an example of what government-run health care could look like for Americans,” added Dan Caldwell. “Based on Bernie Sanders’s ideology, he wanted the government-run system at the VA to work, because it reinforced his view of what government health care should look like for all Americans, not just veterans.”



Those advocates don’t think his rosy view of what was happening at the VA lined up with reality.

...His worldview got in the way of the facts on the ground.
...
The problem, the source said, was that Sanders “believed in government, and he believed in it to a fault.”



Ultimately, an emergency piece of legislation was passed ...


“He got backed into a corner and had no choice but to support the bill.
...
“Bernie just got outgunned… he had no choice. Now he’s turning it around and using it as an example of finding consensus…

...


“When vets needed Bernie Sanders to aggressively oversee the VA and hold them accountable, he was AWOL,” Caldwell added.

Who knows what the future holds and we have yet to see what version of trump shows up.... And what happens in two years that the change is not as swift for the comfort of most trumpettes..
