Democrats Confess They Let Veterans Die at VA Over Ideology: Murder, Anyone?


The Obama administration is complicit in the deaths of hundreds – maybe thousands – of veterans so bureaucrats could get bonuses.  And now people are actually admitting it.

A federal employee union president is wracked with regret because veterans likely died at a time when she knew about gross misconduct within her Department of Veterans Affairs facility but didn’t tell congressional leaders because they were Republicans.

“If I would’ve gone to him two years ago, who knows what kind of lives could’ve been saved,” Germaine Clarno told a radio interviewer Monday, referring to the Republican leader of a VA subcommittee. Clarno, a lifelong Democrat and social worker at the Hines Veterans Affairs Hospital in Hines, Ill., has been president of the union representing doctors at the hospital since before the deadly wait-time scandal unfolded.

Public employee unions and Democrats conspired to do absolutely nothing about veterans who honorably served their country being placed on off-the-books waiting lists to die.  All so Department of Veterans Affairs officials could get bonuses.

Keep in mind that less than five people have lost their jobs over these deaths which are arguably homicides because the officials knew that placing these veterans on waiting lists would delay life saving treatment.  Forty veterans died in Phoenix and Sharon Helman, the director of the hospital, got a bonus for her great work.  She was eventually fired, but never prosecuted.

Not only was she never prosecuted, she’s suing to get her job back because she wasn’t fired for overseeing the murder of 40 veterans, she was fired for “accepting gifts.”

No investigation.  The VA punished whistleblowers.  No prosecutions.  No one lost their jobs.  The waiting lists continue to this day.  And now public employee unions are finally admitting that they, and elected Democrats, and members of the Obama administration, didn’t give a damn about those veterans.

Will anybody care about the dead?  Will their be justice for those who served honorably and then came home to die at the hands of Democrats and bureaucrats?  Not we keep electing Democrats.
