VA woes: Where were Md.'s elected officials?

January 31, 2013

It almost makes you laugh. Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger says that the situation at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs in Baltimore "is and has been unacceptable for years" ("Officials demand answers from VA," Jan 29).

Well, if it has been that way, then where has he, and U.S. Sens. Barbara Mikulski and Ben Cardin been? They claim to be so concerned but have apparently paid little interest In the complaints by the veterans.

The situation could be fixed by firing everyone in that office and replacing them with serious, concerned individuals who obviously care about our vets. See what happens.
