Although Obama said he didn’t want to “pretend that we are where we need to be,” he did just that. The VA removed one to six people “in charge” for patient wait-time problems in the past two years. That’s nowhere near “a whole bunch.”
Obama and his administration have indisputably failed to properly manage the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) – and America’s veterans have paid the price. Under the Obama Administration, the VA’s budget and staffing increases far outpaced increases in demand, but at the same time wait times for disability benefits and health care rose substantially. Additionally, despite replacement of the VA’s top leadership and more funding from Congress in the two years since the wait list scandal began, the VA’s own data shows that wait times for health care have actually increased for many veterans. The VA under President Obama has also had a near-complete lack of accountability and a toxic culture has been allowed to fester that produces near-daily stories of VA employees engaged in misconduct. This has been abetted by the Obama Administration’s recent refusal to enforce laws designed to introduce more accountability to the VA.
midway into his second term that things got especially ugly. The secret wait list scandal of 2014 revealed a VA that was more worried about its reputation than the veterans it was charged to support. To appear like it was treating veterans in a timely fashion, VA health care officials hid veterans with particularly long waits on unofficial lists, which caused many of them to suffer unbearable delays in treatment.
At least 293 veterans died while on these wait-lists a problem confirmed to be systematic at VA facilities nationwide. Yet in spite of this travesty the VA distributed over $140 million in bonuses in 2014.

We’re not, we’re not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that’s fairly earned. I mean, I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money. But, you know, part of the American way is, you know, you can just keep on making it if you’re providing a good product or providing good service. We don’t want people to stop, ah, fulfilling the core responsibilities of the financial system to help grow our economy.

OBAMA TRUMP MAGIC WAND
Obama referenced Trump’s promise to bring back jobs to the United States when talking about manufacturing.
“Well, how exactly are you going to do that? What exactly are you going to do? There’s no answer to it,” Obama said.
“He just says, ‘Well, I’m going to negotiate a better deal.’ Well, what, how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he doesn’t have an answer.”
Editor’s Note: In this third of a five-part series, Middle East and Islam specialist Daniel Pipes continues his documentation of Barack Obama’s close ties to the Islamic religion, focusing here on statements he made as an adult.
Several statements by Barack Obama in recent years point to his Muslim childhood.
