On Obama’s watch, we have repeatedly seen our brave veterans mistreated by the very agency which is supposed to look after them. It’s a shameful disgrace and it has to stop.
This latest outrage occurred at a VA facility in Florida.

VA Employees Left Vet’s Dead Body In A Shower For Nine Hours, Then Tried To Cover It Up
Employees at the Bay Pines VA medical center dropped off a veteran’s dead body in a shower and let it sit there for nine hours, before trying to cover up that they had done anything wrong.
According to a 24-page April investigation by the hospital in Florida, staff broke VA regulations by “failing to provide appropriate post mortem care” back in February when the incident took place, Tampa Bay Times reports.
After the veteran’s death, staff decided told the transporter to move the body to the morgue, who then told them to talk to dispatchers instead according to proper procedure. But staff never made that request to the dispatchers, and so no one ever showed up to take the body away.
To try to get rid of the body, staff moved it into a hallway and then to a shower room, where it remained for a total of nine hours.
Trump has repeatedly stated his intention to take care of our vets. Hopefully, he will make big changes at the VA. Our veterans certainly deserve better than what they’ve been getting.
