The VA Story is Bigger Than Benghazi

"Amid increasing patient loads and an exodus of disenchanted employees, VA medical centers in Phoenix and elsewhere became overwhelmed over the past few years, with new patients sometimes waiting a year to see a primary-care physician and facing months-long delays for specialist appointments," the Arizona Republic reports.

First Read: "For all the political sound and fury over Benghazi, the mismanagement at the Department of Veterans Affairs has been (and will be) the bigger story... There's bipartisan outrage (unlike regarding Benghazi), and it cuts at the heart of the 'competency' issue for the Obama administration (see the health-care website). Yes, VA hospitals have been a mess for years. Then again, we're now in Year Six of the Obama presidency."
