Actually funding has increased every year since 9/11 BUT the SES employees have wasted it by building monuments to themselves in the renovations of Administrative Offices and buildings along with creating/hiring too many employees who are not part of direct Medical Care. Does anyone know what the "Executive Assistant for Qualtity Improvements, Utilizations Case Manager, Public Affairs Manager, Compliance Officer, Executive Assistant for Operations, Customer Service Coordinator, Data Capture Coordinator or Data Validator" actually do? That, along with all of the Administrative Support Assistants that seem to pop up ever where. If the VA had added as many clinical employees as they have on the administrative side, there may not be a backlog of veterans waiting to recieve treatment.

What was the fate of the Veteran's Bill that the President campaigned on in 2012, and Veteran's groups supported, across the spectrum....?
