Dumbass liar. You don't have the slightest idea what caused the financial meltdown, do you?

Hint: worthless deriviatives were involved. Get someone to explain it to you, punk.

NAFTA was a GOP created bill Reagan wanted it and Bush Sr wanted it but democrats until the time of Clinton fought against it. Then the Dems also sold out to the rich and big business and sold our nation down river.

As usual you can't even offer an intelligent rebuttal. Like a teenage girl, you obsess over names and personalities.

The very existance of the Senior Executive Service prevents qualtity independent minded people from achieving anything above their own level without owing their very existance to the mud pit they came from. We have seen that bringing retired military personnel into the VA is a waste of time and money. By the time they learn what their job is, they are more a part of the problem than the solution. I met one of these senior military retreads and his attitude about following a budget was shocking. He always said that "budgets do not apply to me" and guess what, he was either spending money like there was no tomorrow or making threats of dire consequences if he did not recieve more money to spend.

Let's try the CEO/COO route, it might actually be an improvement IF Congress gives them the necessary authority to do the job.
