Hillary Clinton recently insisted that Republicans are simply making it all up and that veterans are genuinely “satisfied with their treatment” at the Department of Veterans Affairs. But Obama’s own Inspector General is on the record admitting that 300,000 veterans have died waiting on service at this gleaming bastion of government-run health care.
Polls from Gallup and veterans groups also blatantly contradict Clinton’s talking point. According to June 2014 Gallup poll, 55 percent of veterans say it is either somewhat difficult or very difficult to get service at the VA. And according to a Concerned Veterans for America poll from February of this year, 88 percent of veterans want health care outside the VA.
Try again, and please stop lying.
