Hillary - (Video) VA Scandal

[10/24/15] Hillary on VA - "Scandals are not widespread"

(ConcernedVetsNews) -- (19:35) RACHEL: Do you have any new ideas for trying to fix it (VA)? There you can't find a person in politics who doesn't say that we shouldn't do right by our veterans. But for some reason this can't get fixed fast enough.

HILLARY: Yeah and I don't understand that. I don't understand why we have such a problem because there have been a number of surveys of veterans, and overall, veterans who do get treated are satisfied with their treatment.

RACHEL: Much more so than people in the regular system.

HILLARY: That's exactly right. Now nobody would believe that from the coverage you see and the constant berating of the VA that comes from the Republicans, in - in part in pursuit of this ideological agenda that they have.

RACHEL: But in part that there has been real scandal.

HILLARY: There has been

But it’s not been as widespread as it has been made out to be.

(21:28 - in FULL INTERVIEW)

HILLARY: Here's perfect example of the way the Republicans try to have it both ways. They try to create a downward spiral. Don't fund it to the extent that it needs to be funded because we want it to fail so we can argue for privatization.
