Obama should have improved VA health care

Just the latest fiasco cover up from our Democrats in Washington. There are consequences for the type of person you vote into office. You reap what you sow.

The problems at the VA hospitals have been documented over and over again for years. When Barack Obama was a U.S. senator, he served on the Veterans Affairs Committee. So as he entered the White House, he was supposed to be an expert in this area.

And back in 2008, he pledged to "make the VA a leader of national health care reform so that veterans get the best care possible." But of course that never happened. And now Obama is claiming he only learned of the "secret waiting lists" at VA hospitals by watching television. I wonder if it was Fox News?

Is it too late to blame President George W. Bush?
