How Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul Sabotaged the VA

It's a great scam.  Repugs target a government agency that is succeeding in making life better for millions of Americans, starve it of funding until the lack of resources causes failure and scandal, then scream that "government" is the problem and demand the agency be privatized. Their corporate buddies take over, charge 10 times the price for a tenth the services, and reward their repug buddies in Congress with massive campaign donations.

Down with Tyranny:

The Republicans, always eager to sabotage the V.A. and push it towards privatization on behalf of their avaricious, wealthy donors, filibustered S. 1982, the Comprehensive Veterans Health and Benefits and Military Retirement Pay Restoration Act of 2014 and managed to kill it even though 56 senators voted for it. How obvious is it that the 41 GOP scumbags-- to quote Ken-- should have all resigned along with Shinseki… or maybe instead of Shinseki, since he seems to have at least been trying to ameliorate a bad situation, while they were busy making it worse and making it untenable. None have resigned and no will resign. It's up to the voters. These are the 41 senators who murdered our veterans:

Senator Bernie Sanders will reintroduce his bill to fund the VA; anybody want to bet on how Mitch and AynRandy will vote this time?

Somebody ask Alison how she would vote.
