Chicago Tribune Endorses Kinzinger, Dold, ...

U.S. representative Adam Kinzinger (R., Ill.) said the VA’s secret waiting lists display “a level of incompetency — to a level of criminality” on Face the Nation Sunday.

The representative, an Air Force veteran, said the VA’s long claims backlog was a sign of incompetent bureaucracy, but that the fake list “is criminal negligence.”

The president hasn’t shown the “intense outrage” that he should over the VA scandal, Kinzinger said, and the Department of Justice should be involved.
