The reports of this travesty went to the obama appointee in DC in February.

Crickets chirping until the whistleblowers went to CNN, then some action, but not until the locals destroyed incriminating documents.

It is an incredibly inept, corrupt administration we've got in the WH, and it is reflected throughout the governmental agencies.

Interesting???
Director placed on leave (paid I am sure) and independent review found nothing wrong as yet?
The scales of justice don't balance here????

They won't balance when you are dealing with a lawless administration like this one.

I would really LIKE to believe (as a vet) that this corruption will be exposed but one agency covering up for another is typical. I really would but the facts present themselves.
I have to trust the VA for certain areas of my health and recently had a positive result from a pain management team (although explaining my history to an intern is not easy) but that was (so far) this VA. Just lucky so far???
Veterans really need to speak up about the lack of care they are receiving! A lot of these hospitals are training hospitals and the interns need to read the patients history before they make any type of determination and then confirm this with the head of the clinic. Some interns are too impatient or the attending physician gives them more latitude than should be allowed.
Vets, it is time to hear your voices. It is after all your health at steak here?

Thank- you for your service,our soldiers have always been my heros. Our veterans deserve top notch healhcare,and retirement benefits. It makes me sick that people would have the audacity to put veterans on a waiting list,destroy the evidence and lie about it while the lawless in chief helps to cover it up. It's time for pro American leadership to be elected so this never will never be allowed to happen again. God Bless America and our soldiers!!

Your thoughts are very much appreciated. The AMERICAN FLAG once stood for something in this country with pride. Now even soldiers have their doubts.
I agree with your comments. I wish we had more people like you to build the back bone of this country again. I am not sure how to build pride in what we once stood for as a nation again???
Our fighting men and women who help defend this nation, against the freedom we take for granted, deserve the respect and quality of medical care that once made them put on a uniform to fight. Now the AMERICAN FLAG is only a symbol to drape their coffin.

It was my pleasure to make that post since it came from the heart. The American Flag is still and always will be loved,and respected by real Americans like us. Yes,freedom has been taken for granted.But, after seeing what this treasonous administration and their supporters have done to our beautiful country and their feeble attempts at violating our Constitutional rights,the beast has been awakened and we will take America back. We will keep fighting, America is worth it!

Thank YOU for building my faith in people who believe in this nation. I will stand in line with my sisters and brothers to take back what was once ours to be proud of and defend.

I like how short minded you are in thinking this problem start with Obama. War mongers when you want to goto war, cheap skates when it comes to paying for those actions.

I have seen a lot in my day as a federal govt employee. He who speaks the loudest wins and it took 3 FBI investigations to expose corruption that was going on at my hospital. Only two employees were burned for stealing a patents money. Management was never touched although it had their signature on it.
Yes, putting the pressure on continuously until something is done!
