WASHINGTON (KMOX) - Despite the secondhand treatment of the Veterans Affairs committees in Congress, Missouri’s Republican Senator says the blame for problems in the VA health system lie squarely with the Obama Administration.

Roy Blunt says all government agencies would run better, if the President were focused on doing his job instead of Congress’.

“If they were more interested in fulfilling the requirements of the law and the responsibility we have to, in this case, veterans, rather than making all kinds of rules and regulations in areas they don’t have any legislative authority to act in, the government would be run better,” Blunt says.

Blunt says the oversight has not been there on the Democratically-controlled Senate-side.

The House and Senate VA committees are among the least attractive committee assignments.
