ST. LOUIS (KPLR) – Veteran’s across the nation have been upset over the recent allegations that veterans have died waiting to get medical care at VA hospitals. Whistle-blowers have even said that some facilities created secret list for prioritized care.
Some of that anger was directed at Missouri U.S. Senator Roy Blunt as he held a press conference at the John Cochran VA facility on north Grand Wednesday morning. An upset veteran scolded Senator Blunt on the lack of action by lawmakers on fixing problems at the VA.
Blunt was at the hospital to discuss about claims that it takes veterans more than 3o days to get mental health care.
