Is there a cure for VA problems?
There doesn’t seem to be…
The congress, The President, McDonald and everyone else but the VA has tried. The VA continues to fight tooth and nail against any meaningful reform…Delay, deny and lie is built into the culture and fabric of the VA’s management…
As far as I can see, there is only one solution…the promise of SWIFT AND TERRIBLE RETRIBUTION for not performing your job correctly…
If OIG finds a department deficient…the department head should be suspended immediately, without pay, and an interim director appointed. A full investigation into the department should be initiated and ALL found responsible should be fired…
Investigation results should be made public as the investigation is ongoing and a final report should made to the President, VA director , congress and the public. Anyone who fails to co-operate with the investigation should also be suspended without pay.
Whistle blowers must be STRENUOUSLY protected..
.Any claim of retribution should be immediately published, investigated, and punished by suspension, leading to a dismissal hearing. Retribution to a whistle blower should be punished by law.
If that’s not enough, CRIMINAL PROSECUTION should be used. Accepting money to do a job and then not doing it is, after all, Fraud. Covering up malfeasance is Conspiracy to Commit Fraud. Do RICO laws apply to a huge conspiracy like this?
What about Civil Suits to recover any and all funds paid to those who took money by fraud?
What do you think about it?
What can you do to make a difference?

Contact your Congressmen and Senators
Contact the VA and let them know how mad you are…https://iris.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1703
(there doesn’t seem to be a number to file a complaint or an e-mail address…maybe your Congressmen and Senators will have better luck)
AND you can SUPPOSEDLY contact VA Sec. McDonald at his personal cell phone at (513) 509- 8454
