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.”
