People have been fighting the VA since at least the 70s. All the VN veterans that couldn't get the care they needed.
As much as some people would like to blame the current administration for all these problems is just more of the same silly partisan BS.
I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.
I very much doubt that this will speed up reform at the VA even a little bit.
Shinseki's basically taking the fall for years of mismanagement. Crappy way to end an outstanding career.
Quo usque tandem abutere, Trump, patientia nostra?
Obama said after he fooled the people and was elected as POTUS back in 2008, "Judge me by who I surround myself with."
It was Army Chief of Staff Gen. Eric Shinseki who was behind that all soldiers would wear the beret without having to earn it.
That should have been a red flag you would think.
I really doubt that simply changing up the guy in charge is going to solve the problem. Failing to care for our vets has been the status quo for more than a decade. It's something congress needs to address. It needs to alter the priorities and structure of the program, and make sure it's properly funded. If it takes 10 months for someone to get an appointment, then there needs to be more doctors for them to see.
