Default VA employees actually destroy veterans’ records to ease backlog

Quote:
There can be no debate that the Obama administration has a disdain for our military and its veterans. Now it seems we’ll no longer see Obama attend VFW and American Legion conferences — not that anyone will miss him.

Remember the empty promises about easing the veterans’ claims backlog? As a matter of fact, when was the last time you saw the FLOTUS and Dr. Jill Biden on a military base talking about supporting military families? Yep, the true colors of Barack Hussein Obama are as brilliant as ever.

But I’m not sure anything can be more disgusting and heinous than what the Daily Caller reported: Employees of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) destroyed veterans’ medical files in a systematic attempt to eliminate backlogged veteran medical exam requests, a former VA employee said. Audio of an internal VA meeting obtained by The Daily Caller confirms that VA officials in Los Angeles intentionally canceled backlogged patient exam requests.”

Apparently this brilliant method of reducing the backlog was conceived in November 2008 and put into full implementation in March 2009 under the purview of the Obama administration.

As the Daily Caller reports: “We just didn’t have the resources to conduct all of those exams. Basically we would get about 3,000 requests a month for [medical] exams, but in a 30-day period we only had the resources to do about 800. That rolls over to the next month and creates a backlog,” Oliver Mitchell, a Marine veteran and former patient services assistantsaid. ”It’s a numbers thing. The waiting list counts against the hospitals efficiency. The longer the veteran waits for an exam that counts against the hospital as far as productivity is concerned.” By 2008, some patients were “waiting six to nine months for an exam” and VA “didn’t know how to address the issue,” Mitchell said.

So, rather than figure out a way to handle the requests, presto change-o! The VA Greater Los Angeles Officials simply decided to cancel them. You can hear the evidence.

This will warrant no investigation either from congress because obama is above the law, and besides it's only veterans so who give a crap.

The way he is treating our military (past and present) will come back to haunt him and the Dems. Lower than low.

Was he trying to get seen at this VA hospital recently? That is the point of the article. Hopefully it was not widespread like some other things like the IRS scandal.

Would you PLEASE stop calling everything that you wish not to be true or disagree with a lie?

They have the recording for crying out loud. They're busted.

She'll come back with a story that runs something like....."when my husband goes to the YA they drop everything and see him immediately, and within 2 hours he is cured of all his ailments. They have never taken longer than a week to get back to him on anything."

Stop defending that damned Kenyan primate! It is getting ridiculous here with his minions whining about his treatment. He can go screw himself, or he can start acting like a president!

If just one left leaning a**wipe try's to justify this idiot of a President I will somehow find you and beat your a** into the ground.

I don't care for either party but this is going to far and I hope it brings down the entire Dem to Progressive party.

I wasn't going to vote but now I damn well will.
