better people die without care than they talk to someone in that icky 'R' party about it.
A former federal employee union president is wracked with regret
because veterans likely died at a time when she knew about gross misconduct within her Department of Veterans Affairs facility but didn’t tell congressional leaders because they were Republicans.
“If I would’ve gone to him two years ago, who knows what kind of
lives could’ve been saved,” Germaine Clarno told a radio interviewer
Monday, referring to the Republican leader of a VA subcommittee.
But you didn't. You went to Democrats who apparently didn't give a shit.
The women first went to Rep. Danny Davis,
a Democrat who represented the district that included Hines, but he was
not on any committees with VA oversight authority. “Danny Davis was
pretty apathetic not because he didn’t know what was going on but
because he felt like their was nothing he could do,” Nee said in the
The two women then went to Rep. Tammy Duckworth ,
a disabled veteran Democrat who also represents the area and was an
official at VA before being elected to Congress, but since was a new
lawmaker without leadership roles on any committees, she did not help.
Clarno and Nee said Duckworth wouldn’t even read a report about the
situation at Hines.
Are you effing KIDDING ME? 'because he felt like there was nothing he could do'? 'since she was a new lawmaker and without leadership roles on any committees'?
You God-damned IDIOTS! You never heard to GOING TO SOMEONE ON A COMMITTEE? You never heard of 'press conferences'? You never heard of going to people and SCREAMING YOUR DAMNED HEAD OFF?
Oh, but that would have cause problems for the union, wouldn't it? And would have disturbed things when a bunch of Obamacare-pushers were telling everyone how well that government-run health care was working, wouldn't it?
Damn the union, damn the politicians, and damn chickenshits like Clarno who couldn't dirty themselves to talk to someone in the other party while people were dying.
