VA Sec. Shinseki Resigns, But is This Just a Band-Aid on a Broken VA Hospital System … Who Will Be Fired or Prosecuted for Fraud & Murder ?

 

It was probably the most expected Friday resignation in history. Of course being done prior to Memorial Day weekend may have been a bit more symbolic …

Friday morning, following comments from VA Secretary Eric Shinseki regarding the current VA scandal, Shinseki met with Barack Obama where he gave his resignation. Barack Obama accepted it and in comments to the press stated that  Shinseki did not want to be a distraction because his priority is to fix the problem and make sure our vets are getting the care that they need. Obama said that was Ric’s judgment on behalf of his fellow veterans and he I agreed, we don’t have time for distractions. We need to fix the problem. REALLY? Obama said Sloan D. Gibson, the deputy secretary of veterans affairs, will take over the VA until a new secretary is named. Great, some one from within the same system.

Having one individual resign and throwing more money at the problem is not the answer. The VA problems are systemic and the people at the top claimed they had no idea what was going on and that they were lied to. IT’S TIME TO PURGE!!! Some people need to be fired and others who took an active role in the fraud perpetrated on our military veterans and ‘We the People” that caused the deaths of many of America’s heroes need to be prosecuted and jailed.

So Ric’s commitment to our veterans is unquestioned. His service to our country is exemplary. I am grateful for his service, as are many veterans across the country. He has worked hard to investigate and identify the problems with access to care.

But as he told me this morning, the V.A. needs new leadership to address them. He does not want to be a distraction because his priority is to fix the problem and make sure our vets are getting the care that they need. That was Ric’s judgment on behalf of his fellow veterans.

And I agree. We don’t have time for distractions. We need to fix the problem.

For now, the leader that will help move us forward is Sloan Gibson, who will take on the reins as acting secretary.

CNN:

The boss resigned under pressure and other Veterans Affairs managers are likely on the way out. Now the challenge is to solve the problem by providing timely health care for hundreds — perhaps thousands — of waiting veterans around the country.

Even Eric Shinseki knew he had to go, President Barack Obama said Friday in announcing the resignation of his only Veterans Affairs secretary over a growing scandal involving sometimes deadly waits for care at VA hospitals.

Obama went before reporters months after CNN broke the story about the latest problems at the VA and minutes after meeting Shinseki at the White House.

Sorry America … take a good look at what you can expect with Obamacare and what Barack Obama and Democrats most want, a single payer healthcare system.

      The VA needs to remove the unions and their work rules from representing the workers. Until this agency is reworked from bottom to top, veterans needing care should be given vouchers good for care at the facility of their choice.

      Some people need to go to jail for stealing from the veterans and the people.
