As if you needed more proof that government will do far worse than any private entity overseen by government, we find out that according to one of the whistleblower in the VA scandal case, government’s investigation of the bureaucratic machine’s failure finding no fault, is nothing but an attempt at a whitewash or a cover-up:
Attempts by the Department of Veterans Affairs inspector general to absolve the agency of blame in patient deaths are either a whitewash or a cover-up, the whistleblower who first revealed falsified appointment lists in Phoenix said in written testimony released Tuesday.
Dr. Sam Foote, a former doctor at the Phoenix VA facility, also called for an independent investigation into patient deaths and the use of phony appointment lists to hide long delays in care.
Richard Griffin, the acting inspector general at VA, denied any wrongdoing. Controversial language that investigators could not “conclusively assert” patients died because of delays was added by the IG and was not requested by agency administrators, Griffin said in his own prepared statement.
When bureaucrats run healthcare and abuse the system, and have no doubt that bureaucrats, but especially the progressive types attracted to these sort of jobs, being petty humans will do so to their own personal benefit or just to punish their political enemies, there is nobody to turn to. Did anyone doubt that this investigation, like so many others in the reams of other abuses of power that plague government run by progressives showcased by this administration, would find fault of any kind with the system? Didn’t think so.
This is the future of Obamacare, but it will be far worse then, because there really will be no recourse. Today people that don’t like the services provided by the VA have alternatives. Tomorrow, when Obamacare has done its damage and we end up with government in full control of healthcare – do not for a second forget that’s the end goal of the progressive movement – nobody but the connected and the powerful will have said option.
Thanks for nothing.
