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.”

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
