The president is planning on screwing up traffic in Phoenix this week for an exercise in mental masturbation when he visits the Phoenix Veterans Hospital. The Phoenix Veterans Hospital is where Obama’s veteran patient scheduling scandal first came to light.
This is the first time the president has seen fit to come to the scene where hospital administrators put sick veterans on handwritten waiting lists so the administrators would look good with respect to their appointment time targets, and earn big bonuses. In Phoenix that little scam cost at least forty-five veterans their lives.
Obama was in Phoenix just a few months ago, and drove right by the Veterans Hospital. He didn’t even slow down to waive. Full disclosure: if you haven’t already guessed we think this trip is a complete waste of time and money.
If Obama really wanted to do something the Justice Department would be prosecuting hospital administrators all over the country, but especially in Phoenix, for, at a minimum, negligent homicide. These administrators were actively delaying tests on veterans who had early-stage terminal diagnoses. By delaying the tests their disease advanced beyond doctors’ ability to treat the veterans. They died.
We are not a Doctor, we went to engineering school, but even a lowly engineer can figure out that if someone has stage one colon cancer you don’t delay their follow-up testing. If we can figure this out certainly the woman greedy bitch, Sharon Helman, who was in charge of the Phoenix Veterans Hospital and earned tens of thousands of dollars in good performance bonuses for meeting scheduling wait times could have figured it out.
Literally took an act of Congress to fire her. She was on a paid leave of absence – make that vacation – for almost 6 months. And there has been no criminal investigation.
The new Secretary of Veterans Affairs, Robert McDonald, says both he and the administration are “concerned” about the care of our veterans. So, what are they going to do about it.
The president is going to show up at the Phoenix Veterans Hospital. He’s going to mumble platitudes and probably play golf in Scottsdale. His Secretary is going to “form a committee” to study the situation. This idiot has been Secretary of Veterans Affairs since DATE and all he’s going to do is “study the situation.” No criminal investigation.
The administration is also about “protecting whistleblowers.” We sincerely doubt that. The VA just reached a settlement that has been in the courts for a couple of years over a group of whistleblowers. Some who had been fired were reinstated, but in no case were the people who were retaliating against the whistleblowers fired. They’re not likely to be fired nor will Obama’s Department of Justice likely prosecute them either.
The hallmark of this administration is that it is not okay to defend yourself from attack by a black man but it’s perfectly okay to kill veterans. The veterans probably didn’t vote Democratic anyway.
