READ THE ARTICLE! Very poor title on this story. It's not a new boss just an ACTING one. What they call an Interem Director. The actual Director is just away on PAID administrative leave (or paid vacation) while the VA's Inspector General plods through the investigative process which could take MONTHS. Don't get your hopes up that any real progress will take place until a lot of people at the Pheonix VA are fired AND prosecuted for the deaths of more than 40 veterans who were denied their opportunity to recieve health care.

Just discovered that the VA is sending a real heavy hitter to Pheonix. This one made a higher bonus last year than the one he is replacing. In the VA system, that is how the VA identifies the "best of the best". Just watch how big their yearly bonuses are. Of course many of those that have been recieving the big bonuses over the last 2-3 years are now being identified as leading the same Medical Centers that are being investigaing for screwing our veterans. That must be the key to top performance. Screw the veteran, "game" the system, win a reward.
