Wh Report Blames “corrosive Culture,” Bad Leadership At Va For Deadly Corruption « Hot Air

Another problem area in the report is resources which means budgets: The technology behind the basic scheduling system is cumbersome and outdated. Additional resources, including doctors, nurses, trained support staff and other health professionals, are needed. Many of the resource issues facing the VA are similar to what exists in the private sector. But the VA has not clearly articulated its funding needs. Thats a joke, right? In six budgets signed by Barack Obama, funding for the VA rose 78%, as I wrote a month ago : In comparison to that final Bush budget dont forget that Obama signed the FY2009 budget in March 2009 with the omnibus spending bill after a Democrat-controlled Congress refused to deal with Bush VA spending has risen dramatically as well. The annual budget rose 78% in six budget cycles, with double-digit increases in four of the six years while Defense spending was flat.No other Cabinet agencyhad a larger budget increase by percentage during Obamas tenure. The closest was Agriculture (64%), followed by State (59%, which tends to discredit the canard about the Benghazi failure being caused by a lack of resources). Only HHS had a larger annual budget increase in terms of dollars spent, but it amounts to a 37% increase in spending from the FY2008 baseline.
