OOPS! House Democrat Proudly Claims Obama Increased VA Budget
Posted on Saturday, May 31st, 2014 at 6:13 am by Kyle Olson
The Democrats’ only hope to pin the outrageous VA scandal on Republicans is to somehow portray them as obstructionists who cut the VA budget to save money.
Florida Congresswoman Corrine Brown apparently didn’t get that memo.
As Mediaite puts it:
Rep. Corinne Brown (D-FL) probably did not set out to substantiate virtually every Republican talking point regarding how Democrats and the Obama administration have handled, or mishandled, the scandal surrounding the Department of Veterans Affairs. Nevertheless, that was the result of her spirited attempt to defend President Barack Obama Wednesday at a House Veterans Affairs Committee Hearing.
Invoking images of the central Florida congresswoman hovering high above her district in an SR-71 Blackbird, Rep. Brown assured the hearing’s attendees that she has performed her “reconnaissance” on the VA. Following the successful completion of that mission, Brown reported to her colleagues that the Veterans Affairs facilities in Florida were “doing fine.”
Brown’s tut-tutting proves a lack of resources was not the VA’s problem.http://www.progressivestoday.com/oops-house-democrat-proudly-claims-obama-increased-va-budget/
