As reported by Rachel Maddow on Thursday (5/29/14), 41 Senate Republicans who blocked Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders' Comprehensive Veterans Health and Benefits and Military Retirement Pay Restoration Act of 2014 in February — 'cause, y'know, 'the deficit' and 'runaway spending' — are now waving their little plastic American flags and engaging in pious, political handwringing over the inexcusable difficulties faced by veterans seeking to access Veterans' Administration health services.
These shameless hypocrites are about to get theirs.
In the wake of the roiling controversy over fabricated VA 'waiting lists', a virtual symphony of calls for the scalp of VA Secretary Eric Shinseki and much frat-house excitement within the GOP for — at long last — a real 'scandal' they can try to hang on President Obama (to replace all the invented ones), Republicans are bleeding (and bleating) red, white and blue.
... but Bernie has a big surprise for them! According to Maddow, he plans to reintroduce his bill, which originally had 29 co-sponsors, in early June.
It's not every day that we get to witness poetic justice administered as a proctological procedure.
Following is an alphabetical list of the scumbags and chickenhawks about to be 'surprised from behind' while engaged in full-bore partisan pander... the same cretins who know no economies or deficits when literally forcing the Pentagon to accept unwanted and unneeded spending destined for the pockets of contractors who lobby them and support their campaigns.
Be sure to stock up on popcorn.
