Crazy Bernie Sanders Blames Koch Brothers for VA Scandal (Washington Free Beacon)
Chairman of the Veterans Affairs Committee Sen. Bernie Sanders (D., Vt.) appeared to blame the VA scandal on the Koch brothers last Friday at a North Hampton, MA forum with The Nation’s John Nichols.
The Department of Veterans affairs has fall under increased scrutiny over revelations administrators in Phoenix and elsewhere created off the books waiting lists for veterans seeking care. Several veterans died while waiting on the secret lists.
Sanders forcefully defended the VA and other federal agencies at the forum, stating the VA provides “very high quality healthcare” and programs such as Medicare and Social Security are “enormously popular.”
