A Citizen Responds to Veterans Administration Scandal

Scandals seem to abound in the current presidential administration. Benghazi, the IRS targeting of conservative groups and, now, the scandal at the Veterans Administration. If it wasn’t bad enough that the administration allowed 4 American citizens to die without so much as a whimper in Benghazi, or that they deliberately hindered the rights of Americans to express their political opinions by deliberately hindering conservative groups from achieving tax-exempt status before a major election, and are still doing so a year after the fact, now they are deliberately ignoring a problem that was known about on Day One of the administration’s tenure.

When it comes to our veterans, those men and women who have put their lives on the line for us, as Americans, there is no excuse. The only response that should have eminated from the halls of power in Washington, DC, was an immediate and profuse apology and a n immediate effort to rectify the problem. Forget investigations that never go anywhere, forget the lame, compassionate posturing; the only reaction that this newest scandal required was for the president to order the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to do whatever it takes to make the situation right.

But what can you expect from a president who spends more time on the golf course than actually doing his job. The president in the Cheif Executive of the United States, his job is to execute policy. Lately it seems that the only thing he’s been executing is a bad slice to the right. The sad thing is that the only people who seem angry about this are the ones who have buried loved ones after the heel-dragging that has gone on at the VA. As a freedom-loving, freedom-appreciating American, we should be on our hands and knees thanking those men and women who have sacrificed life, limb, and mental well-being for us, we should be storming the halls of Congress, demanding the heads of every exective in the Veterans Administration who have recieved hundreds of thousands of dollars in bonuses (which is wrong in itself) for boning the hell out of those brave soldiers, Marines, and sailors. Ladies and gentlemen, fellow Americans, when are we going to get mad and demand justice?
