Don't you get it? McCain is a soft landing spot for the progressives. People vote two parties. He gives a crumb to the populace that votes for him while taking many crumbs back. He is a warmonger in the same fashion as Woodrew Wilson,Truman FDR, LBJ, Da Bush family and Obama. Veterans health care is the end game where people don't care. Its politics with many employees bums and getting paid by the system that calls anyone questioning it, haters. The system will collapse and it will be beautiful if the people destroyed are the families of the ones who did it along with the innocent. And believe me, there are people who played by the rules who are hated on these forums. But we never learn. History is repeated.

The VA is VERY GOOD about covering its tracks and rarely leave anything behind. That is WHY upper management continues and that is part of their job, to make sure all traces of corruption are covered up.
My staff called for 3 investigations to corruption at my local VA. The FBI was eventually called in and files were deleted, shred and destroyed before the FBI could get a FULL investigation to corruption. Eventually two people were convicted. One got house arrest and the other was sent to federal prison for 8 months. This corruption involved $10,000.00 from patient funds, managements hands were all over this case but no one from management was ever disciplined. One supervisor was even caught shredding files but nothing was ever done to this supervisor.
It took complainants to the local newspaper and numerous calls the the FBI to 'investigate' this case. The heat from the local newspaper is what got the attention of this case for investigation.
Managements responsibility for anything over $300.00 requires a upper level supervisors signature. Anything over $300.00 requires a check to be issued so it can be traced. IN this particular case, CASH was released to an employee who was signing for the family that never showed up. The veterans car and personal effects were also released to this employee and management never batted an eye. Later when the news media got a hold of what happened, the file was pulled and sent to upper management and never seen again and I was told by my supervisor NOT TO DISCUSS the case. I pointed out to my supervisor that I was just discussing what the newspapers printed and nothing more. I was then 'ordered' not to discuss the case and this would be reflected in my quarterly evaluations.
What would YOU DO in a case like this?
