Then-Senator Barack Obama, November 12, 2007: “After seven years of an Administration that has stretched our military to the breaking point, ignored deplorable conditions at some VA hospitals, and neglected the planning and preparation necessary to care for our returning heroes, America’s veterans deserve a President who will fight for them not just when it’s easy or convenient, but every hour of every day for the next four years.”

By 2012, Obama continued to compare the performance of the VA during his administration favorably to his predecessor, declaring, “For the first time ever, we’ve made military families and veterans a top priority not just at DOD, not just at the VA, but across the government.”

Now we know the report of at least 40 U.S. veterans dying waiting for appointments at the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care system is only the tip of the iceberg.


Welcome to the new health care of America. Crappy veterans health care and lies for votes on fixing it, and then a terrible "affordable care" act. Yet sheep still line up to listen and believe the lies that things are getting better not worse. The messed up part is the only reason politicians are acting like they care about it is because of the elections coming up. All of a sudden they care so much about vets. Why can't veterans get the same health care as the politicians who send them to war? Ray why do you still support this president so much and the ideology behind this kind of crap?

It isn't so much that liberals are ignorant. It's just that they know so many things that aren't so.

I am really curious. Do you actually really think this is just an Obama issue? Ask any Vet....this as been going on since the VA Hospital's inception. Try and look past your bias for once...this issue is both GOP and DEM. Grow a pair and post the actual truth for a change.

No its been going on for a long time i have talked to many vietnam vets at my local va facilities. Did you not read what obama said about veterans and healthcare? Its only gotten worse, just like the gap between rich and poor.


Obama scolded bush about the va and what did obama do about it? The va sucks and you know it. Liberals never hold obama accountable for his words. Its always going back to bush or some former president. Hillary clinton could slash veterans benefits and health care funding, and then go on tv and say its nit happening.....and just because its hillary clinton you would believe her. Thats how brainwashed you are.


Let me guess, you truly believe benghazi was over a you tube video.

Really? We are talking about the VA...and you bring up Benghazi? How stupid are you? And you call ME brainwashed??? The US lost 3 people in Benghazi. Why no outrage from you about all the people we lost in Iraq? Selective memory? We had hundreds killed and thousands injured....but you wanna focus on 3 who died in Benghazi? You are stupid. Simple as that.

I brought up benghazi as an example of how you believe anything a democrat president will tell you. Back to the va is obama not accountable ever for his words? You side step that.


I know about the people lost in iraq, some right in front of me. Nasty war it was. Shouldnt have happened, but hey its my generation's Vietnam. Which is why i wondered why obama pressed so hard to strike syria. The weird thing is that it would have helped the rebels, many of which we fought in anbar province along the Euphrates river.


By the way dummy, we didnt lose hundreds in iraq, we lost thousands.

The Va health care today is so much better then it use to be, there is no comparison to the 70's even 80's.

It seems to have it's up's and downs through all the presidents, i think partly because it has become so large and complex, we have so many living vererans these days.

I don't use it, i prefer my own private healthcare, i feel let the ones that can't afford private health care use it.

But there were a few times over the years i did use it for small things.

It use to be such a mess, just getting an appointment was a job in itself, let alone how long you would wait.

LA was rated the worst at one point, there were several others close in rating.

I still laugh when i think about when i went to the LA VA hospital to get a blood check back in the 70's.

I had maleria several times and thought it might be reacurring, so i went in for a blood test, since most other facilities really didn't test for maleria, except military and VA.

The guy waiting in front of me had a broken arm, he had been waiting 6 hours to see a doctor.

When i finally got my blood taken, they told me they would have the results back in three to five days.

I informed them i needed this done that day, because if it was reaccurring i would be in bad shape in 3 days.

I did finally get them to check it several hours later, better then the guy with the broken arm.

I never did figure out what they classified as an emergency back in those days, maybe you had to be dead, but then it didn't matter anyhow.
