At the Hermosa Beach Playhouse on Jan 30, Congressman Henry Waxman trotted out one of his favorite talking points about the Brentwood VA.
He blamed the Republicans, specifically House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA).
According to Waxman, the House Majority leader wanted to sell off the land, use it for debt reduction.
Surprisingly enough, The Wall Street Journal confirms Cantor's proposal.
However, the same piece confirms that both Democrats and Republicans supported Cantor's suggestion, with little opposition to follow.
Waxman has made his career indicting everyone but himself for the massive failure of our veterans to receive the care owed to them at the Brentwood VA. He hammers one talking point at every chance, yet his career in office, from 1975 to the present day, deserves more vetting.
Let's take a look at what he was doing in the 1970s:
How about the 1980s?
Running a political machine along the Westside, perhaps, but not much else.
Then come the 1990s.
Hearings into Tobacco use. Of course, nothing about
In his best-selling book "The Waxman Report" -- not once does Congressman Waxman mention his work with the veterans of Los Angeles.
Waxman loves to hammer Cantor for attempting to sell the VA land. At least he wanted to do something with it. What did he do for over three decades? Nothing.
Once again, Waxman refuses to own his own failures. This guy has no business being in office.
