Obama just DOES NOT care about veterans

A new bill signed into law by President Barack Obama on August 7 does not hold those accountable for the deaths they caused, said Sally Barnes-Breen, who had to watch her father, Navy Veteran Thomas Breen, die while he waited months to see a doctor at the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Dozens of veterans died due to abuse and information tampering by over 92 VA facilities.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - "They broke all the medical codes, when you swear on your oath," she said. "Billions of dollars can't fix the VA broken system. What's going to fix [it] is if you criminalize people when they do wrong."
President Obama's $16 billion measure does not include any criminalization or legal consequences.
Instead it provides money to build more VA medical facilities and hire more doctors and nurses. It also includes more funds so a few veterans can get health services from private facilities, and it makes it slightly easier to fire or discipline senior VA officials.
When Obama signed the bill at Fort Belvoir in northern Virginia, Obama said that the package would begin changes to keep caring for its military veterans.
"Over the last few months, we've discovered some inexcusable conduct," he said. "This is wrong. It's outrageous."
"This will not and cannot be the end of our efforts."
Congress approved the bill just before its August recess.
Still there was nothing in the bill to take care of the Dozens of veterans who died while waiting for care due to 92 VA medical facilities manipulating information, though VA secretary Eric Shinseki did resign in May of 2014.
Thomas Been died in November 2013 after he was repeatedly denied care at the Pheonix VA medical facility. In December of that year, the VA called to say an appointment had been scheduled.
"I said, 'Really? You're a little too late sweetheart," Breen's daughter recalled.
