Senator Coburn: More Than 1000 Vets May Have Died As A Result Of VA Mismanagement

This has been going on for a long time, although it became exponentially worse under Obama.
Start solving the issue. Simple thought: vouchers for care for any place a veteran can get into.
Via Fox News:
A new report released Tuesday by Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., claims more than a thousand veterans may have died between 2001 and 2011 as the result of misconduct and a “culture of mismanagement” at the Department of Veterans Affairs.
The report rattled off a litany of allegations against the embattled agency, claiming whistleblowers are subjected to retaliation and doctors see far fewer patients than the average primary care physician.
“As is typical with any bureaucracy, the excuse for not being able to meet goals is a lack of resources,” Coburn, a physician himself, wrote in the introduction to the report. “But this is not the case at the VA where spending has increased rapidly in recent years.”
The report cites investigations by the VA inspector general and the Government Accountability Office, as well as media reports.

Thank You Fox News and Nickarama.
