Blame U.S. Republicans for missing VA oversight

LaceyJune 3, 2014 

When you look into the website for House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, you will find they were supposed to oversee the exact problems we have at the VA – “The Committee will examine the availability and means through which the Veterans Health Administration provides care to eligible veterans whose access to traditional medical services is limited by geography, disability, or other challenges. Specifically, the Committee is concerned about the implementation of two new national initiatives — the Patient Centered Community Care (PCCC) and Non-VA Care Coordination (NVCC) programs — both of which would make significant changes to VA’s fee care program.”

So when the Republicans blame Obama as the sole responsible party in our government, they are flat out lying and they know it. Just like the Republicans. Whereas the Democrats don’t go around blaming, they try to fix the problem.
