Oh, fucking yawn .... as if it will lead to any meaningful change --- VA chief Eric Shinseki resigned.
Meh ... it's a somewhat mediocre scalp on the conservative's Fuck Obama at every turn lodgepole, but The Gadfly is sure that they will milk it for some election year scumbaggery.
The question that military veteran Gadfly has for the Republicans is -- what is your fucking plan to fix the problems with VA care -- or are you only interested in using the crisis for political attack ads?
But The Gadfly already knows the answer to that question ....
Earlier this year, the GOP had a chance to prove that it could fund veterans' health care as eagerly as it borrowed for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Long before the current VA crisis, an event described as "a gift from God" by Dr. Ben Carson, Senate Republicans had a chance to vote on a landmark bill. Before the Senate vote, organizations devoted to the needs of veterans and their families offered widespread support to the Comprehensive Veterans Health and Benefits and Military Retirement Pay Restoration Act of 2014.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/h-a-goodman/republicans-va-funding_b_5395698.html
The GOP blocked that legislation -- against the wishes of the VFW, The American Legion and the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America.
The Gadfly does not ever want ever again to hear a conservative open his fucking piehole and talk about how much they love America's soldiers. FUCKING EVER!!!
