That question must ricochet around 810 Vermin Ave. NW day in and day out. If it isn’t someone with a conscience and an ax to grind filing a Whistleblower claim, it’s some unnerving revelation that the boys in Denver have been playing fast and loose poker with the contractors of the new VAMC. Somebody saw the bet and called. VA didn’t have the $1.6 billion owing and had to admit it publicly. Unfortunately, Rep. Miller is getting bombarded day in and day out as well with requests for more hearings on what is turning out to be a distressingly long list of dirty VA laundry. The ashes of Phoenix haven’t even cooled off yet. What gives?
Secretary Call me Bob has been in the saddle for long enough to be apprised of the myriad problems and given the authority to hire and fire to fix it. He seems rather ambivalent from one day to the next about firing all the gomers or praying things settle down.
Consider the lists you guys send me. All this in a week.
The VA propaganda machine
Then the inane. Oh, God. We’re mollycoddling them.
And the human interest stories on Vets. These warm my heart. Keep sending them in.
