Guess What Socialist Bernie Sanders Blames the Koch Brothers For

Bernie-Sanders

Harry Reid appears to have another person joining him in his Koch addiction. The Senate Majority Leader has taken to the Senate floor and the media on numerous occasions to blame the billionaire, philanthropist, Libertarian leaning brothers for everything from the House GOP budget to global warming. Reid has even gone so far as to call the brothers un-American. But, Dirty Harry is no longer alone in his Koch addiction.

Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders, who is chair of the Veterans Affairs Committee, placed the blame for the VA Scandals not on Secretary Shinseki and not on Barack Obama. No, Bernie Sanders blames the death and suffering of veterans on the Koch brothers.

Sanders: Right now, we’re dealing with the Veterans Administration. I’m Chairman of the Veterans Committee. Let me tell you some news. The Veterans Administration provides very high quality health care. Period. It’s not perfect. It is good quality health care, according to the veterans themselves, and according to a number of independent surveys that have looked at it. It’s not perfect. It runs 151 centers. Today 200,000 veterans get health care through the VA. There is right now, as we speak, a concerted effort to undermine the VA. So the point is, you have government entity itself, Social Security, enormously popular, Medicare, enormously popular, Postal Service, popular, VA popular. What are the problems? The problems are, is, that all of these are large, governmental institutions and you have folks out there now, Koch Brothers and others, who want to radically change the nature of society, and either make major cuts in all of these institutions, or maybe do away with them entirely.

Despite the fact that it has been determined that the issues at the VA are systemic and not confined to the Phoenix VA, Sanders defended the failed, single-payer, socialist based health care system that our veterans are subjected to as providing “very high quality healthcare.” Perhaps Sanders hasn’t heard that veterans died and thousands have been kept waiting for treatment, hidden on secret waiting lists that VA employees kept so that they could receive their bonus which was based on decreasing waiting times.

Sanders, an avowed Socialist and Independent who caucuses with the Democrat Party, seems to want to play politics with the lives of our veterans by using their plight to attack one of the Left’s favorite targets – the Koch Brothers. How shameful that he cares more about tarnishing the name of people who disagree with him politically than actually getting to the bottom of the rampant corruption at the VA that resulted in real deaths and real suffering.

Examples of SOCIALISM

She is quite right, for example, to stress that Thatcher's crusade against socialism was not merely about economic efficiency and prosperity but that above all, “it was that socialism itself—in all its incarnations, wherever and however it was applied—was morally corrupting.” —Stephen Pollard, New York Times Book Review, 18 Jan. 2009

I no more trust this country to be in total control of anything and dole out assets as they chose, would you want them to tell you, that you have to give half your land, savings etc to a less fortunate and that you have no control

NO! but I believe the 1% should not control America, and congress is very much in cahoots with the wealthy and big corporations,and receive many monies from them. think they should pay taxes and not put their money in off shore accounts, congress should create ,do the work appointed to them for  we the people who pay them.minimum wages should be increased immigration addressed, Veterans taken care of and benefits increased, A good strp is in the AFC that congress bitched about now is working and can be improved if Congress will do it an accept the concept, for  the people.monies should be taken out of Elections, let a man/woman run on what they stand for honesty,goodness and the Love of America,,I have said this many times!! TRICKLE DOWN WEALTH ! does not work, and that is what Republicans are still pushing that concept Republicans are big Gov't..could go on and on, but like I said need to go to the Market. I will be back( Arnold Schwarzenegger) :rotflslap:

it is not only Republicans with big money , and the thought of Dems considering a medical program for Veterans like the ACA is nothing short of a nightmare , just fix the VA hire Dr.s since there is a huge shortage of them and get this mess right, stop the delays, excuses and stuck on stupid remarks and fix it period. Accountability starting from the top and working its way down is what is needed, not lame excuses or blatant lies.
