1.) Veterans Health Administration Scandal
The VA has constantly been criticized for poor service quality for our veterans over the years but in 2014 that criticism exploded.
It had been reported that a 14-day target for getting a veteran an appointment had failed and it was later found that 35 veterans had died while waiting for their appointments at one facility!
Then-President Obama had to push for the resignation of an official and somehow ended up taking no heat for the reports.
After a short spurt of media coverage, the story was over, it was inexplicably dead in the water.
