Holder: We’re NOT Investigating VA Deaths
In Shreveport, Louisiana, veterans are being pushed out of the nursing home they depend on. Why? Unfortunately, it’s a consequence of President Obama’s overreaching pen. In February of this year, the president signed an executive order to raise the minimum wage for new federal contract workers, bumping the $7.25 hourly wage to $10.10.

Turns out, nursing homes that have contracts for subsidized care from the VA become federal contractors. And according to Mrs. Franks, the public affairs officer at Shreveport’s Overton Brooks V. A. Medical Center, if a VA center cannot afford to raise the wages it pays its employees, their contracts with the government will not be renewed. Thus, the veteran pays the price by losing the care and shelter he or she deserves.

These nursing homes are of course privately owned and the shareholders get money before the vets get cared for.
