Members of Congress are exposing the real Joe Biden and it isn’t good for the Democrats.
“House Republicans are shining a light on a major records backlog at a government archives agency that has meant thousands of veterans and their families are waiting months, and in some cases years, for paperwork that is necessary to receive benefits,” according to a stunning Fox News report.
The Biden who promised more efficiency is playing a role in the ignoring of urgent veterans’ benefits.
Per Fox News,
Republicans on the House Oversight Committee are calling for a congressional hearing on the backlog of 500,000 record requests at the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration’s (NARA) National Personnel Records Center (NPRC). The major delay in obtaining records, including military DD-214 separation forms needed to obtain veterans’ benefits, worsened during the coronavirus pandemic when federal workers were sent home and unable to physically process the requests for records in a timely fashion.
“America’s veterans fought for us, but the federal government isn’t even willing to return to work to provide veterans with their records,” said Rep. James Comer. “The result: almost half a million requests from veterans and their families delayed for months. This is an utter tragedy and a poor reflection on the gratitude we should pay to the brave men and women and their families who served our country.”
