CNN Reporter: VA Reform Bill ‘A Little Misleading’, Money Was Never the Problem

CNN reporter Drew Griffin, who first broke the news of the VA scandal, criticized the newly-proposed reform bill which would provide the department $17 billion in additional funding.

“Not enough money wasn’t the problem in the first place, was it?” asked CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

“That is what is a little misleading about all this, Anderson,” Griffin agreed. “Money has not been a problem at the VA, in fact the Department of Veterans Affairs has gotten just about every dime it has asked for over the last several years. This was and remains a management problem, and how the money has been mismanaged.”

Griffin called the bill a “17 billion dollar bandaid.”

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
