Vets Wait For Medical Attention, Hospital Squanders $20,000,000 On THIS!

Vets Wait For Medical Attention, Hospital Squanders $20,000,000 On THIS!

This just makes your eyes bleed. It’s not bad enough that veterans have to wait weeks and sometimes months to get the care they need – many don’t survive long enough to get that care by the way – insult is now being added to massive injury with this new revelation. The VA doled out $20 million over the last 10 years for freaking high-end art to showcase at their treatment centers. These are the same people who keep saying they don’t have enough funds to adequately treat our wounded warriors. Just obscene.


From Louder with Crowder:

The Veterans Affairs administration doled out $20 million over the past 10 years to snap up high-end art to fill their treatment centers across the country according to a new report.

Forbes organization Open The Books went through records… reporting that the administration ‘bought Christmas trees priced like cars and sculptures that cost more than five-bedroom homes.’ All this while thousands of veterans died while waiting to be treated by doctors.

The most shocking findings in the report are the $21,000 spent on an artificial Christmas tree for one treatment center, and the $670,000 that was spent on two pieces of art for the Palo Alto Polytrauma and Blind Rehabilitation Center. Those two pieces will likely not be appreciated by veterans at that facility, who are unable to see the art.

This is literally a mountain of bullcrap and smells even worse. Christmas trees priced like cars and art that costs more than homes… it goes way beyond outrageous. Every administrator and every manager in the VA should be fired. Start the hell over. There’s not enough money to hire adequate staff to treat our veterans and the ones they do hire tend to be incompetent and/or criminals. Gee, as our heroes sit in VA waiting rooms, literally dying to see a doctor, at least they can look at crappy art that the VA deemed more valuable than the lives of our veterans. I’m sure that will comfort them a great deal. So angry about this, I can’t take it.
