Obama Disgrace - 238,000 Veterans Died Waiting for Health Care Under Obama!

Recent leaked documents indicate that nearly one-third of veterans who were backlogged by the Obama Department of Veteran Affairs died while waiting for treatment.
RT reports:
A leaked document shows nearly one-third of the 847,000 veterans in the Department of Veteran Affairs' backlog died while waiting for treatment, amounting to more than 238,000 patients, according to documents obtained by the Huffington Post.

The VA maintains that the number is so large because it has no mechanism to purge the list of dead applicants, and that some of the veterans may have died years ago. VA spokeswoman Walinda West told the Huffington Post that some people on the list may never have completed an application, or could be using other insurance.

She said 81 percent of the veterans who come to the VA "have either Medicare, Medicaid, Tricare or some other private insurance," West said. "Consequently, some in pending stays may have to use other options instead of completing their eligibility application."

Scott Davis, a program specialist at the VA's Health Eligibility Center in Atlanta, disputes the VA's claims on virtually every point. He provided a 2015 report titled Analysis of Death Services to the Huffington Post.
