Barack Obama KNEW! Obama Administration Told of Veterans Affairs Health Care Debacle as Far Back as 2008
Once again Barack Obama acts shocked to a scandal as if it was the first time he just found out about it.
They Claimed Barack Obama was not mad, but madder than hell regarding the VA scandal into cooking the books regarding wait lists for our American heroes that resulted in delays in their medial attention and their deaths. What is he mad about, that the story was outed? Sorry, but Barack Obama and his minions cannot claim they were blindsided or that they just found out about this debacle as the Washington Times reports, the Obama-Biden transition teams knew as far back as 2008 about this mismanagement of the VA. The White House says Obama only learned of VA wait-list scandal on TV … BS!!!
The Obama administration received clear notice more than five years ago that VA medical facilities were reporting inaccurate waiting times and experiencing scheduling failures that threatened to deny veterans timely health care — problems that have turned into a growing scandal.
Veterans Affairs officials warned the Obama-Biden transition team in the weeks after the 2008 presidential election that the department shouldn’t trust the wait times that its facilities were reporting.
This is not only a data integrity issue in which [Veterans Health Administration] reports unreliable performance data; it affects quality of care by delaying — and potentially denying — deserving veterans timely care,” the officials wrote.
The briefing materials, obtained by The Washington Times through the Freedom of Information Act, make clear that the problems existed well before Mr. Obama took office, dating back at least to the Bush administration. But the materials raise questions about what actions the department
t took since 2009 to remedy the problems.
Never have we had a White House and President full of such deception and lies … Obama makes Nixon look like a choir boy.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney wound up with egg on his face Monday as he told reporters that President Barack Obama first learned from a TV news report that his Veterans Administration was denying medical care to vets with secret off-the-books-waiting lists.
But new evidence emerged this morning that his transition team was notified five years ago about how VA medical centers’ official wait-list times bore little resemblance to reality and risked denying military heroes critical health care.
