The VA is still a mess
Meet Robert McDonald, Obama's replacement for the VA chief. After the VA scandal revealed that dozens, and probably more, of veterans died waiting to be seen by a VA doctor. Further, the VA falsified federal documents that showed wait times were far less than they were. Why people only got fired for that and not imprisoned is anybody's guess, but at least McDonald came in, cleaned house, and got the VA in ship shape.......
Just kidding, federal documents showing wait times for sick and disabled veterans, are still being falsified to show far shorter wait times and the VA awarded themselves $142 million in bonuses, just since he's been in the director's office.
It remains a profound mystery to me why any, ANY federal employee should be getting a bonus for doing his job, but to be given a bonus for doing it poorly, if not illegally, is beyond my comprehension.
But then I guess the VA is no different than all the other grossly bloated federal bureaucracies, full of useless quasi-criminals sucking voraciously at the public teat and laughing all the way to the bank, at the American people who fund it all and put up with it.
