The VA has 167 full-time designers on staff in its 75 hospitals and regional offices. Over the past eight years, they've spent over 16 million on artwork.
To give you some idea of the scale of waste, nearly $700,000 was spent on two sculptures at hospitals for blind veterans. What's worse than the waste on art is the waste of salary for the 167 designers. Estimates put total salary expenses over the same period at over one hundred million dollars. That makes the art itself look cheap.
While all of this waste was going on, veterans suffered from long lines secret lists and inadequate care. What's really insulting is how the VA continues to complain that they're underfunded. Do you have any idea how many doctors and specialists you could get for 116 million dollars?
It's just another example of government inefficiency and proof nobody in Washington is looking out for you. And to think millions of Americans believe that it would be a good idea to replace ObamaCare with some form of single payer. Wouldn't that be grand!
From there we've got some new studies on global warming, and China is making some sneaky moves in the South China Sea in an attempt to control those major shipping ways.
