Biden VA Chief Wants to Cut More Veteran Services

Denis McDonough, President Joe Biden’s secretary of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, is now coming under bipartisan fire.

At a time when we need to be increasing benefits for veterans, McDonough wants to make cuts.

He got a nasty letter from Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) regarding proposed cuts to two Washington VA facilities.

What Are You Thinking?

Our veterans are already hung out to dry, so I cannot imagine more cuts going over well with anyone.

Thankfully, Rodgers and Murray have walked across political lines to expose this idiocy.

The changes McDonough wants to make would downsize Walla Walla’s VA hospital and end inpatient services at Mann-Grandstaff VA Medical Center in Spokane.

The Spokane center would be converted to what amounts to be a referral clinic where veterans would go to non-VA hospitals for treatment.

Now, I am all for veterans being able to choose whatever care they want, but that should be at their request, not shutting down a much-needed facility.

Rodgers wrote, “I’ve said from the start that reducing or eliminating care options at the Spokane and Walla Walla VAs would be a disservice to the men and women in our communities who sacrificed so much for our country.

“Stopping the AIR commission in its tracks was the first step in preventing their misguided recommendations from moving forward, but our work is far from over.

“It’s time to double down and prevent VA leadership from pulling the red carpet out from under our veterans by reducing services through an alternative restructuring process, which is exactly what I plan to do.”

Does anyone else find it odd how this administration is looking for more ways to provide care to illegal immigrants and making it harder for our veterans to do the same?

Democrat Party = America and Americans LAST.
