Veteran Affairs is one of the most mismanaged government program in the United States. Veterans cannot make appointments, the cost for treatment is outrageous, over 307,000 veterans died waiting for care, yet nobody has been held accountable. The most recent atrocity by the VA came when the VA went to Congress, less than three months before the end of the fiscal year, short $2.6 billion in funds in order to care for the veterans.

The Secretary of Veteran Affairs, Robert McDonald, told Congress that if they do not receive $2.6 billion more in funds, they will have to deny veterans the care they deserve. The VA has been known to delay doctor appointments, especially in the past 7 years. Robert McDonald has only been Secretary of Veteran Affairs for the past year, yet he has already made some horrific things. “What you’re seeing is a sea of change in the way VA operates. Historically, we’ve managed to a budget instead of managing to requirements based on veterans’ needs.”

After discussing the possibility of closing some of the VA hospitals, Congress passed an emergency spending bill worth $3.5 billion. Josh Earnest, White House spokesman, said that the United States has committed to spend $4.5 billion in order to help rebuild Syria while also addressing the refugee camps scattered throughout Europe. $419 million will be designated for humanitarian aid assisting with Syrian refugees. The money is coming from the United States Agency for International Development which means that Congress will not get the chance to deny the funding.

While thousands of veterans are dying waiting for medical care and even more are living on the streets, the United States is sending over several billion dollars to help other countries. The United States can’t even take care of those who protect its freedom, yet the Obama Administration doesn’t seem to notice

    We all get totally disgusted by these outrageous billions allocated for things like refugees, and war. But I think we are missing the real story. The real story is how money that is allocated for this and that, doesn’t really go to this or that. Oh sure, some of it does, but what people need to realize is that a large percentage of that money – 30 -50%, will simply disappear, go unaccounted for and much of the rest of it will simply be wasted on projects that accomplish nothing.
    Like bridges to nowhere in Alaska….this money will be divided up among the special interest people…..it will be used to pay lobbyists who pay politicians to flavor the pot even more in their favor. These outrageous 4 Billion dollar budgets, are like the trillion dollar wars, they serve to make the rich richer…..Americans need to WAKE UP to this fact…..this money is being criminally diverted…..that is why America is falling apart. That is why the first things the GOP cries about is cutting SS and Medicare…..they detest any money going back into the hands of the people of this country………so our bridges collapse, our military falls way behind on technology, our wars are just black holes – money pits that bottomless…… Obama asked for over 1.5 Billion dollars this week for fighting the Zika virus, a bioweapon no doubt created by the same people who are stealing the rest of the money…….how many ways have they found to fund their parasitic existence? It is endless theft, bigger and more brazen by the year. Rumsfeld announced the day before 9/11 billions were missing – unaccounted for………we are told of the gold Ft Knox is missing, stolen, GW smirked and shook hands with Hank Paulson over the easy theft of 3/4s of a trillion dollars, stolen in the name of bank bailouts in 2008..and here we sit on the verge of bankruptcy and collapse and still nothing is being said or done this outrageous theft. It is not until the personal bank accounts of each and every working man and woman is stolen right before their eyes that people will wake up…..and that is coming…any day…and then it is too late….

      Good point, Debbie! You are speaking of the ‘real’ truth that will come out. They can no longer hide it. Think about the CAFR system, as a for-instance, when you think of Michigan and the situation in Flint! Hugs, ~Jean
