Lawmakers Weigh Cutting Medical Care For Veterans To Pay For Boondoggle Project In Denver

Congress and the Department of Veterans Affairs could be heading toward a showdown in coming days over whether to slash spending across the agency –including on medical care for veterans — to cover runaway costs for a new hospital in suburban Denver that’s now widely viewed as a boondoggle.

Just days before the troubled construction project runs out of money to keep workers on the job, House and Senate lawmakers are weighing a plan VA Secretary Robert McDonald sent them late last week to cover the remaining cost. The money could come from spending cuts across the sprawling agency of close to 1 percent, or from shifting money from dozens of construction and maintenance projects planned in members’ home districts.

Anyone who does not see what is going on is blind. The so called money to make VA better is going into new construction which is no real help to Vets who need care. Parking lots new buildings. new cafeterias, new offices all kinds of expensive playthings VA uses to steal from Veterans.

I would go to my next C&P exam in a tent. Just fine with me.

I think they confuse the "experience" with the "quality of exam".

For that one building in Denver, they could have built a couple dozen local offices around Denver and surrounding areas which veterans could get to much easier.

Well put and so true. By doing clinics instead of giant hospitals, they could save money AND be more accessible for vets.
