America’s veterans have been treated like dogs by President Barack Obama’s Department of Veterans Affairs administration. Many times our heroes don’t get treated at all. What you are about to read will make you mad as hell. 

Obama’s Veterans Affairs administration spent $20 million on expensive artwork and sculptures while thousands of veterans died waiting to see doctors.

The Washington Free Beacon reported that the taxpayer watchdog group Open the Books teamed up with COX Media Washington, D.C., for an oversight report on spending at the VA, finding numerous frivolous expenditures on artwork, including six-figure dollar sculptures at facilities for the blind.

“In the now-infamous VA scandal of 2012-2015, the nation was appalled to learn that 1,000 veterans died while waiting to see a doctor,” wrote Adam Andrzejewski, the founder and CEO of Open the Books, in an editorial for Forbes. “Tragically, many calls to the suicide assistance hotline were answered by voicemail. The health claim appeals process was known as ‘the hamster wheel’ and the appointment books were cooked in seven of every ten clinics.”

“Yet, in the midst of these horrific failings the VA managed to spend $20 million on high-end art over the last ten years—with $16 million spent during the Obama years,” Andrzejewski said.

The VA spent $21,000 for a 27 foot fake Christmas tree; $32,000 for 62 “local image” pictures for the San Francisco VA; and $115,600 for “art consultants” for the Palo Alto facility.

A “rock sculpture” cost taxpayers $482,960, and more than a half a million dollars were spent for sculptures for veterans that could not see them.

“In an ironic vignette, at a healthcare facility dedicated to serving blind veterans—the new Palo Alto Polytrauma and Blind Rehabilitation Center—the agency wasted $670,000 on two sculptures no blind veteran can even see,” Andrzejewski said. “The ‘Helmick Sculpture’ cost $385,000 (2014) and a parking garage exterior wall façade by King Ray Studio for the ‘design, fabrication, and installation of the public artwork’ cost $285,000 (2014).”

“Blind veterans can’t see fancy sculptures, and all veterans would be happier if they could just see a doctor,” he said.

C.E. Dyer at Conservative Tribune points out that this type of egregious frivolity and waste by the Obama administration is beyond the pale. American heroes are dying, and his administration spits in their faces.

GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump has promised to take care of our vets, fix the VA and deal with massive government waste. Hopefully the voters give him the chance to make good on his promise come November — for the sake of those who have served our country and protected our freedom.
