Obama’s War On Our Veterans

army soldier1 Obamas War On Our Veterans

The Democrat habit of appointing “good Democrats” to positions, without regard for the required administrative skills it calls for, is  hurting almost 900,000 disabled veterans.

The incompetence of Barack Obama’s Veterans Affairs Department has created a bureaucratic nightmare in which more than 65% of its disability claims sit on someone’s desk for more than 125 days. On top of  this, 16% of the cases that are brought to resolution are done so in error, according to veterans’ advocate groups’ testimony to the House Veterans Affairs Committee last week.

The V.A is totally underprepared for the predictable increase in disability claims caused by stepped-up fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. The current projections of a 1.2 million case backlog and an extra 50,000 cases a year present a sobering scenario in light of the so-far failed administration of V.A. Secretary Eric Shinseki, a Hawaiian Democrat and retired Army General.

In response to the cold facts of his failure, Shinseki did what any good Democrat does; he promised better results by some future date. He told his critics he would have 98% of his agencies’ disability claims settled in less than 125 days by 2015, when he should be long gone.

The failures of the Veterans Benefit Management System (VBMS) to properly care for those who have been injured protecting our freedoms cannot be blamed solely on Shinseki.  As is the case whenever any good and upright undertaking is malfunctioning in Barack Obama’s America, the Faker in Chief is at the root of the problem.  While Obama has spent wildly hiring thousands of new IRS agents to make us knuckle under to his Obamacare scheme, he is grossly underfunding the VBMS. The VA has requested just $92.3 million for 2013 in spite of having spent a total of $343.6 million in 2011 and 2012.

It’s easy to see where Obama’s priorities are, and they are not with caring for the veterans who have been disabled in the service of our country.

    Here in the one-party (Democratic) sanctuary State of Maryland, illegal immigrants get more benefits, healthcare (including dental) being just one, from various city, county and State government agencies than Veterans do.

  5. The Lord, our God will deal with, and all other evil actions, by "our leaders". Our task is to pray for their conversion, keep faithful to Jesus, and do our best to follow Him. We need to offer our sufferings to Him for this.

  6. The SOB in office has NO RESPECT for veterans or those who are now in our military! This piece of shi* needs to be removed!

  7. I also want to say to all those who have served and is serving at this moment, THANK YOU for your bravery and for protecting ALL of us!
