Not long ago an Inspector General’s Report revealed that 300,000 vets have died waiting for health care.
WASHINGTON – More than 300,000 American military veterans likely died while waiting for health care — and nearly twice as many are still waiting — according to a new Department of Veterans Affairs inspector general report.
The IG report says “serious” problems with enrollment data are making it impossible to determine exactly how many veterans are actively seeking health care from the VA, and how many were. For example, “data limitations” prevent investigators from determining how many now-deceased veterans applied for health care benefits or when.
But the findings would appear to confirm reports that first surfaced last year that many veterans died while awaiting care, as their applications got stuck in a system that the VA has struggled to overhaul. Some applications, the IG report says, go back nearly two decades.
Hillary Clinton was quick to dismiss this concern, asserting that it’s not a “widespread problem.”
At least you know where she stands. Or do you?
Hillary used Veterans Day to play politics. She falsely accused Republicans of wanting to privatize the VA. She asserted that the problems at the VA are “serious, systemic and unacceptable” but she doesn’t want to disturb the status quo. John McCain called her remarks “shameful.”
In October, democrats blocked a VA funding bill. There’s always dickering about budgets for veterans. Somehow, for other groups the money is unending.
Elderly Cubans get to retire to the US, complete with social security, despite never having contributed a single penny:
More Cubans are coming to Florida in their golden years to retire, able to tap U.S. government assistance even though they never lived or worked here.
The number of Cubans arriving over the age of 60 grew fivefold since 2010, according to state refugee data. At least 185 made the crossing in their 80s or 90s.
Unlike most other immigrants, Cubans qualify immediately for food stamps and Medicaid. If they are over 65 with little or no income, they also can collect a monthly check of up to $733 in Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
“They’re getting cheap apartments, food stamps,” said Cuban-born attorney Pedro Fuentes-Cid of Tampa. “They tell their friends in Cuba, and they come over.”
The United States makes it possible under a humanitarian policy of treating Cubans who arrive as refugees. Elderly immigrants interviewed by the Sun Sentinel said they came primarily to be with family, met the aid qualifications and are grateful for the help.
There’s lots of money to help illegal aliens pay for college.
Those Syrian Muslim “refugees”?
They’re eligible for TANF, Medicaid, and CHIP, food stamps and Supplemental Security Income.
Same for the illegal invaders from the South.

President Obama’s 2016 budget blueprint proposes rolling back a program that gives veterans the right to receive faster care outside of the long waitlists at the troubled Veterans Affairs medical system.
Obama has opened the door to 100,000 “refugees” per year beginning in 2017.
We never run out of money for illegal aliens.
We never run out of money for welfare.
We never run out of money for “refugees.”
We never have enough for veterans.
