Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-IN) interviewed with Larry O’Connor, WMAL radio in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, May 21st. Get this: she serves on the House Veteran’s Affairs committee and says over the last 18 months, the House has passed dozens of reform bills for the VA, some bi-partisan, none of which have made it to the floor of the Senate — meaning Harry Reid killed them, didn’t give Senators the opportunity to even consider them. Can we say anything other than Harry Reid may have killed those 40 or more veterans who were not treated, and may kill more as diseases have advanced during this time? There is only one reason not to bring legislation to the floor after it is passed and received from the House, and that is to keep the intent of the bill from happening — in this case, improving the VA.

Depends, if Obama was Republican he would have been impeached a couple years ago if the Dem's also owned both houses. Then of course made to resign just like they did to Nixon. Remember the circus the Dem's had with that one? Course not!
Well it's been a roomer that Craigie takes stupid pills, but I don't believe it. I think it just comes natural.
Multiple sources with direct knowledge of the Benghazi attack also question why more of the investigation hasn't been centered on the Libyan landlord of the American facilities in Benghazi, Mohammad al-Bishari. Some in the region that night insist that al-Bishari "knows a lot more than he is letting on" and "is a key connection to everyone else that night" -- and should be at the very least intensely questioned about what he may know about the attack. Al-Bishari is also said to have bought a new hotel in Benghazi.
When contacted by Fox News, al-Bishari asserted his innocence and said that the United States still owes him money for the damage done to both the consulate and the annex the night of the Benghazi attack.
Others on "the target list" include Al Qaeda and "Libyan militants."
As Fox News previously reported last fall, American Special Forces on multiple occasions weren't allowed to go after harder and more important targets, even though they had multiple chances and opportunities to do so over the course of 16 months. The team, which was officially assigned around Tripoli to train Libyan Special Forces, was also tasked with finding the Libyan suspects responsible for the Benghazi attack. While a U.S. official told Fox News that the operators in question were not specifically tasked with finding the Libyan suspects responsible for the Benghazi attack, a source in the region countered the claims, saying "it's partly a cover."
Complicating the hunt, the U.S.-developed training camp on the outskirts of Tripoli was taken over a few months ago by militia groups who are now hoarding weapons, according to sources. The worry is this camp, abandoned by U.S. trainers, is being used to attack the new Libyan government and possibly western interests.
Despite President Obama's promise to stay focused on hunting down those responsible for the 2012 Benghazi attack -- and despite a recent arrest touted as a major takedown -- sources say little has been done to nab the other suspects.
According to multiple sources on the ground, including some with direct knowledge of the operations to identify and hunt the Benghazi suspects, intelligence that could have been acted upon at times has been ignored or put on hold. Further, they say, the recent capture of Ahmed Abu Khattala -- now on a ship bound for the U.S., expected to arrive this weekend -- was an easy one.
"He was low-hanging fruit," one source told Fox News. "We could have picked him up months and months ago and there was no change, or urgency to do this now."
Former Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the Sept. 11, 2012, attack. Khattala was long thought to be involved, but is also considered by some to be rather low on the suspect list.
According to sources, the United States has a "target list" that initially contained about 10 suspects identified within days of the attack and eventually grew to more than 20 as American Special Forces conducted surveillance in and around Benghazi.
The four groups on the "target list" include Ansar al-Sharia, with the top target being the "Emir of Ansar al Sharia," Abu Sufian Ibrahim Ahmed Hamuda bin Qumu. He was a prisoner at Guantánamo Bay for more than five years and at the time was classified by analysts at the prison as "a probable member of Al Qaeda." Despite this significant threat to American security and allies, bin Qumu was released as part of an amnesty for militants in 2008. Sources told Fox News that intelligence has shown his involvement in the attacks, and actionable intelligence has for some reason been ignored.
In this same group, but at the bottom of the list, is Khattala.
Just remember Pure, your talking to person who sucks off the VA for his diabetic meds so he can save 90%. Never mind he's a big time day trader up $8000 so far this year.
I really don't think it's mad cow disease. Craigie don't seem to be himself anymore since he discovered he was 10% Indian. Now he's ashamed of the white man! This can happen to simple minded people when they stay up all night watching reruns of the Lone Ranger.
President Obama on Thursday charged that lawmakers in Congress are too focused on "ginning up a base" before the midterm elections, but he pleaded with a town hall audience gathered in a park in Minneapolis to resist the urge to grow cynical.
"It must feel like sometimes you're just forgotten" by Washington, Mr. Obama said, with congressman pursuing "Washington fights."
"They're fabricated issues, phony scandals," he said. It's not on the level, and that must feel frustrating. It makes people cynical, and it makes people turned off from the idea that anything can get done."
The president didn't mention anything specifically, but the White House has been highly critical of the Republican-led House's insistence that the misconduct at the IRS may have been politically motivated. The White House also criticized the lawsuit that House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, plans to file against the president for overstepping his executive authority. Boehner has yet to say what specific presidential actions he plans to challenge. The administration has also, in the wake of GOP attacks, defended its handling of the recently-captured Benghazi suspect.
Remember when when the media was comparing Obama to Abe Lincoln? Even liberal media has given up on that con job. We have a deaf, blind person running the country.
"Morons on the Supreme Court"? Being a college drop out, stay at home son, your a shinning example of accomplishing, nothing! Just like a liberal hate machine, you run down everyone else, while trying to make others think your so superior. Nothing more or less than a hateful liberal extremist that envy's others success!
That's what you get with open door policy letting everything in with two legs or less you idiot.
