VA Switched to Processing ObamaCare Applications
The Veterans Administration (VA) scandal is off the front page. There are too many scandals for the Obama Administration to contain. The scandals are coming so fast and furious that the media is actually reporting that Obama and Co. are falling out of favor with the American people.
The poll numbers for Obama are disastrous.
If the media had done their job years ago, we would not be in this economic death spiral, the moral degradation of society, and increased international disruptions. The majority of people voted for Obama because they believed in political salvation. When Messiah’s don’t deliver what the people expect, they are dealt with harshly.
It’s taken longer with Obama because no one wanted to be perceived as racist in offering criticism. Everything is racist these days, from global warming (Environmental Racism) to wanting tax and spending cuts.
Because the media have treated Obama with special care lest he break the tenuously constructed liberal ideology, real investigative journalism has been dealt a severe blow. I know it’s been said numerous times, but if this had been a conservative administration, there wouldn’t have been a second term, and calls for impeachment would be coming from every Democrat.
Because of media mismanagement, the Obama administration has gotten away with all kinds of ideological murder.
Consider this from Daniel Greenfield at David Horowitz’s Frontline Mag.
“In another indicator of how low a priority veterans have with this administration, a whistleblower in Atlanta has revealed that VA employees were switched from processing VA applications to those of the Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare.
“He later appeared on the Neil Cavuto show and claimed that 17,000 applications for VA Healthcare were destroyed. He also said they’re ‘also looking into a backlog of over 600,000 pending applications for VA Healthcare.’ Davis said the applications were purged as a way to deal with pressure from Washington D.C.
“Cavuto: How is that performance measured?
“Davis: That performance is measured based on our ability to turn around an application from beginning to end within a five-day turn around. There’s an acceptable percentage that we have to have, which is in excess of 80% for all applications that comes into that office. What you find is that there’s extensive pressure on the staff to process applications, to focus our attention to applications based on specific campaigns.
“For example, I shared with your producer that we actually put incoming applications aside so we could focus on the ACA related applications that came in over last summer. That’s wrong. We should treat each veteran equally and focus on applications, as they come in, not because of special campaigns coming out of D.C.”
“Unfortunately Obama Inc. doesn’t care about veterans; it cares about its ideological priorities and those always come first.”
