On Thursday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin ripped the Obama administration for putting the needs of illegal immigrants ahead of veterans who sacrificed to ensure the nation’s freedoms.
At the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Palin referred to the Veterans Administration’s wait-list scandal and said, “we can’t wait for D.C. to fix their bureaucratic blunders.”
Palin demanded that veterans get vouchers to get treatment outside of the VA.
“Give our vets the same freedoms they gave us,” she declared. “And instead of illegal aliens cutting in line and being rewarded with a handout of U.S. benefits, we demand that the vets are first in line.”
She blasted the “corrupt government” for putting veterans on secret waiting lists, deceiving Congress, and then spying on investigators who were trying to get to the bottom of the scandal.
