Senator Marco Rubio: Democrats' blocking VA accountability bill 'outrageous'

Rubio: Democrats' blocking VA accountability bill 'outrageous'

Marco Rubio excoriates Bernie Sanders and Senate Democrats who blocked his bill to increase accountability at the VA.

Senator Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) asked for consent to take up and pass the Veterans Affairs Management Accountability Act, a bill that would make it easier/possible for the scandal-plagued department to fire employees based on poor performance. The House overwhelmingly passed the legislation on Wednesday, with a bipartisan vote of 390 to 33. (Only Democrats objected.)

Surely the Senate would follow suit, right? Not exactly. Senator Bernie Sanders, a union-backed socialist from Vermont, objected on behalf of Senate Democrats to Rubio’s request. Instead of taking any action now, Sanders said he is going to hold a hearing—several weeks from now.

Sanders, who chairs the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs, has been one of the most outspoken defenders of the VA against allegations of misconduct. When asked about reports of multiple deaths related to long wait times at the VA healthcare system, Sanders told CNN: “People die every day.”

These democrats voting against it are the lowest form of human flesh.

Need to pray for Sanders. Maybe Psalm 55:15: Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell: for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them.

Sanders is a Marxist. He, Schummer, Feinstein, Boxer, Reid and other socialist Senators are rubber stamp all of obama's Marxist programs and EOs. The Senate is a den of liberal vipers.
