Tim Huelskamp 
Congressman Tim Huelskamp spoke out strongly on the Obama administration’s VA scandal, calling the inhumane delays and keeping of secret waiting lists in order to garner bonuses criminal.

Rep. Huelskamp (R-KS), speaking on the House floor on Tuesday morning, gave fervent support for the recently introduced Veteran Access to Care Act of 2014.

“This is a long overdue, proactive, multi-pronged solution I’ve been advocating for since coming to Congress,” said Rep. Huelskamp, who is a member of the Committee on Veterans’ Affairs.

“In the committee the last three years, we have been investigating lavish conference spending at the VA, millions of dollars of outrageous bonuses, billions of dollars of cost overruns, and these were all significant scandals in and of themselves,” said the Congressman from Kansas, while stating that the current crisis is much more serious because it involves “life and death.”

Congressman Huelskamp gave real-life examples from his district in which veterans were asked to drive as long as ten hours for healthcare they could have received near their homes. Huelskamp, while blasting the current scandal as criminal, says the Veteran Access to Care Act of 2014 would rectify this problem.

Huelskamp called the VA scandal a problem that is both “systemic” and “nationwide,” while asserting that it involves “cover-ups, corruption and criminality.”
