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.”

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago
