Charles Krauthammer said that the Obama administration must use their authority to let veterans seek civilian healthcare.
“It turns out the VA has had the authority to issue out vouchers, to allow a vet who has been waiting forever to go out and get private care,” he said. “They should have done that on day one when the scandal broke.”
Despite the president saying he’s ”mad as hell” about the VA scandal, he also called the scandal “allegations,” and said they must be investigated. Krauthammer said the president cannot have it both ways.
“How can you be ‘mad as hell’ at allegations? It’s just not consistent. It’s like him saying ‘I learned about it in the newspapers’ and I’ve been working on it for six years,” Krauthammer said.
