“People are dying” at the VA.
That is the bottom-line with the ongoing Veteran’s Administration scandal and Obama’s promise to get to the bottom of it is as hollow as every other claim to get to investigate “Fast & Furious”, Benghazi, The IRS and all the other scandals swept under the rug.
Now there are reports of the most heinous abuses at VA hospitals and the Obama Admin does nothing.
Maybe they haven’t heard about it because the mainstream media ignores it?

When asked why he would risk his job and speak publicly, Detective Thomas Fiore considered the question carefully before answering. “People are dying,” he finally said, “and there are so many things that are going on there that people need to know about.”
Fiore, a criminal investigator for the VA police department in South Florida, contacted CBS4 News hoping to shed light on what he considers a culture of cover-ups and bureaucratic neglect. Among his charges: Drug dealing on the hospital grounds is a daily occurrence. “Anything from your standard prescription drugs like OxyContin, Vicodin, Percocet, and of course marijuana, cocaine, heroin, I’ve come across them all,” he explained.
Even inside the hospital, he says he was stopped from doing his job – investigating reports of missing drugs from the VA pharmacy. When the amount of a particular drug inside the pharmacy doesn’t match the amount that the pharmacy is supposed to have, a report, known as a “discrepancy report” is generated. Normally it was his job to investigate the reports to determine if they were the result of harmless mistakes or criminal activity. But all that changed, he said, about two years ago.
“I was instructed that I was to stop conducting investigations pertaining to controlled substance discrepancies,” he recalled. He said he was personally told to stop investigating them by the hospital’s chief of staff, Dr. Vincent DeGennaro. “I have no idea why,” he said. “He’s the chief of staff he doesn’t have to tell me why.”
CarlosDanger2016 sums it up well:
“I find it incredible this whistleblower story has only been covered by the local news channel. If this happened under a Republican president it would be a lead in news story on every national news broadcast. There would be wall to wall coverage for weeks. The national media needs to stop being a cheering squad for this president and start doing their job a demand accountability from this administration”
