A disturbing Veterans Affairs report leaked to Huffington Post suggests that 238,000 of the 847,000 veterans awaiting health services from the VA have died before receiving treatment. That means nearly 30% of our veterans are dying because of the VA backlog!

Why isn’t this a top priority with the Obama Administration? It’s not like this is a new revelation. They KNOW there’s a problem with the VA. They’ve known for YEARS! It should be fixed… NOW! What’s the holdup?
