… Those Dummies Knew [VAgate] …

.. what a big surprise ! ..

.. still , it is damning ..

.. [h/t — WashingtonTimes]..

.. [link] to the article ..

.. did it originate in the Bush Admin ? Yes . However , it started late in their time , and it was not in an easy position for them to deal with it . The big problem for them would have been the DemoCraps and their socialist Demagoguery in Congress . So , they did pass the ball , and gave the ObamaCraps a head’s up …

.. the Washington Times found evidence the Obama administration knew about the problems from the time of its transition into the White House :

The Obama administration received clear notice more than five years ago that VA medical facilities were reporting inaccurate waiting times and experiencing scheduling failures that threatened to deny veterans timely health care — problems that have turned into a growing scandal.

Veterans Affairs officials warned the Obama-Biden transition team in the weeks after the 2008 presidential election that the department shouldn’t trust the wait times that its facilities were reporting.

The briefing materials, obtained by The Washington Times through the Freedom of Information Act, make clear that the problems existed well before Mr. Obama took office, dating back at least to the Bush administration. But the materials raise questions about what actions the department took since 2009 to remedy the problems.

.. for the ObamaCraps , they wanted to do the traditional liberal remedy : they threw money at the problem. They have little incentive to do much of anything else …

.. to remedy the problems though would have made them public , and think back then to early 2009 : Team Obama was trying to sell America on Obamacare, so it’s extremely unlikely that people calling for a greatly increased government role in health care would want to make public a horrific example of what can happen when bureaucrats are in charge of a health care operation. The Obama administration — or any Dems pushing for Obamacare or single-payer — wouldn’t have wanted to shine a light on the VA debacle for the same reason airlines don’t show “Mayday at 40,000 Feet” as the in-flight movie .

.. so , they kept their mouths shut . Now , the bug is coming back to bite them … Big Time  !! …

There does appear to be a time span that will allow Team Obama to blame Bush, and don’t think they won’t run with that. However, that does little to explain why nothing was done about the problem for years since.
