Why do we need our own

National Veteran’s Action Committee

VA WILL NOT CHANGE UNTIL FORCED

It’s becoming increasingly obvious that the VA WILL NOT CHANGE UNTIL IT IS FORCED TO DO SO..

The VA has for years wasted billions trying to get the Aurora campus built.  Now they are refusing to tell congress where the money went…

The VA wasted millions on solar panels…

Millions for ad agencies…

While VA keeps Vets waiting for months for care…

While Vets die…

http://www.cnn.com/2014/04/23/health/veterans-dying-health-care-delays/

Then has the audacity to go to congress claiming  they’re out of money after wasting billions…

http://thehill.com/blogs/congress-blog/economy-budget/247562-congress-be-skeptical-of-more-money-for-va

 

Even with scandals breaking out all over the place, numerous reports on TV and in newspapers,  and congressional hearings,  and  VA is lying, Vets are dying  billboards going up around the country,  the VA continues to lie,  delay and deny,  stonewalling,  and squirming furiously to hide the truth and maintain the status quo…all the while finding every legal,  and many times illegal, way to delay and deny Vets benefits of all kinds…continuously  ignoring or subverting  clear directions from the VA Director , the President and even Laws passed by congress…

Whether It’s the incompetent or unqualified care providers,  the clerks trying to shoehorn too many patients into too few slots and finding ways to hide their enormous waitlists by gaming the system or simply shit canning requests for appointments,  their middle level bosses conniving with them and each other to maintain their bonuses.  or upper level management conniving with them all to maintain their little fiefdoms…all protected by the Union,  the clause in their contract the says the Government           ( read that as TAXPAYERS )  will assume all liability     ( even though tort laws protect the gvmt from doing so cutting of all recourse for those Vets damaged, killed and cheated by the system ),  and finally by the  VA itself which lies before Congress, continuously denyies access to information,  and continuous stonewalls from bottom to top…

And we’re still just talking about the VA’s PRIMARY MISSION…medical care of Vets.  I haven’t even started on Benefits  or Voc Rehab yet, both of which are just as riddled with corruption and ineptitude…

SO WHAT’S THE ANSWER ?

Actually there are LOTS of answers, lots of things that need to be done…

Remove incompetent or unqualified care providers…

Get rid of all the doctors from outside the US who can’t or won’t obtain the training needed to supplement the inferior training they received in their native countries,  such as those from India and Pakistan who can’t get a real license here without going through school again…

Get rid of the American doctors that can’t get malpractice insurance because they’ve been sued so many times for incompetence…

Stop using unqualified NPs instead of Doctors to provide primary care..

Hire qualified doctors to replace them,  maybe by forgiving school loans in return for a 6 year stint at the VA,  like a 6 year stint in the military…

Remove  civil service protections…

Between civil service protections and the union, it’s almost impossible to remove an incompetent lazy or dishonest employee…resulting in these employees being shifted from place to place to hurt another group of Vets.

Get rid of incompetent or ineffective clerks and middle and upper management…

Especially ANYONE who has been involved in shredding documents or manipulating wait lists.

Fire them,  prosecute them for wrong doings and sue them to recover all wages and bonuses paid them while employed at the VA…PUT THEM IN JAIL…

Hire and train Unemployed Vets to take their place…Who better to care and advocate for Vets than Vets ?

 

Protect whistle blowers…

Immediately suspend without pay anyone who is accused of retaliating against whistleblowers and investigate the allegation immediately with a investigating body completely outside the VA and free from VA influence…

Reward whistleblowers financially for confirmed allegations and punish them for unsupported allegations just as severely…

ALL GOOD IDEAS

I can’t take credit for these ideas…I’ve seen them in forums and comments on many sites…but all have been sent to the VA and congress at various times…WE KNOW WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE…but so far no-one in congress has had the gumption to stand up to the VA and its’ contractors and employee unions,  which lobby congress furiously to protect their money piles…

 Only congress has the power to effect real change at the VA…they control the money…

And there’s only one way to control congress.

The thing EVERY congressman cares about most?…Getting  Re-elected.

There are 21.8 million veterans of the U.S. armed forces as of 2014,  according the Census Bureau.  But we’re not just talking about the Vets only.   They have mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers and wives and children…so multiply that 21.8 million by one mother and one father, one sister and one brother, one wife and 2.5 children  and you have 165.3 million potential voters…out of 319.2 million Americans…More than half the people in America.   Actually,  according to Population Clock – Census.gov  The United States population on July 4, 2015 was: 321,216,397…Still…

THAT’S A LOT !!!!  OF VOTES

So here’s what I’m proposing…

I’m not talking about a traditional PAC that gathers together billions of dollars and then uses that money to bribe politicians with junkets and campaign contributions and promises of future consulting jobs and exorbitant speaker fees…

We would only do four things…Organize….Provide information to politicians on matters that concern us  (no campaign contribution, no information junket to Bermuda, not even lunch)  Watch what they do…and VOTE

 

 A CALL TO DUTY 

You answered that call once…It’s time to do it again.  This time, for all your Brothers-in Arms…

  1. I am a vfw my teeth are so bad i need dentures. Recently i spoke to a man straight outta prison who had brand new dentures compliments of Uncle Sam so i can go to prison and get dentures but not the veterans hospital WTH. Also suffer from addiction medical card recipients can receive pain management i reveive meloxicam which doesn’t work again WTH

    1. I’m going thru the same thing. They pulled my teeth,(there’s a trick to get them to do it), but I can’t get dentures. “It has to be service connected. Can’t find any charities to help. Been trying for a long time with no luck. Can’t eat right. Viet Nam era Vet on non-service connected disability . $1072 a month with out a COLA raise in about 3 yrs. Last one was about $7-8 raise. With the money they waste, they could afford to get dentures for every Vet alive and then some. I go to the Wade Park, Cleveland, Ohio VA Hosp. I would like to start or help with an organization that would help with such things.
      Any ideas…….anyone??

  2. Many people claim to help veterans, yet when it comes to standing up to help them they are silent. I am asking you to walk the walk with us by supporting Horses and Heroes. There are many ways you can do it and yes some of them including financial support.

    Donate the cost of a cup of coffee or a drink?

    The proceeds from my book, God saw a Butterfly will be used to help fund it. It is a transformational and healing parable. It’s available on the website and as an Amazon Kindle.

    Tell ask others donate or buy a copy of God saw a Buttery.

    If you know the head of a corporation tell them about Horses and Heroes. The series has been formatted to include two 10 billboards and a 30 second bridge at the bottom of the hour of each episode to promote the cross branding partner. In addition to the on air promotions, Horses and Heroes will drive traffic to the sponsor’s website.

    Today you can choose to be part of the solution?

    1. I urge my readers to take a close look at this and help any way you can…It looks like a really good cause…Theresa…I’ll copy this and paste it in My FB acount and ask my friends and family to share…

  3. Are there other organizations that are heading up change also? Wondering about reinventing the wheel? Tell me what you know, PLEASE, about action groups, what your envision doing, etc.

    I saw the article passing around about the vet who set himself on fire in the last week. It got to me. I have been discussing VA and healthcare issues, the suicide rate, etc. with vets since the beginning of the year. I am not one, please know that, but it really bothers me and changes need to be made. I am doing research for and with another vet who has some wonderful ideas – simple ideas, but don’t know where to go with them?

  4. The VA is worthless ! If you have an emergency they tell you to call 911, great ! But they never tell you that they won’t pay for anything. I’ve had to go to an ER for life threatening problems twice and after 3+ years all I’ve gotten are forms to file more NOD’s . The nearest VA hospital is 100 miles away, why can’t the VA issue contracts to local hospitals for our care. Probably because they spent the money on redecorating their offices and giving themselves bonuses while giving veterans the “Bone” !! The VA didn’t refuse to use us to protect them but they refuse to protect us from them !

  6. My Primary Care provider at the Asheville Medical Hospital is trying to garner hospital leadership support beyond nodding their heads for he alone to implement programs that have a proven record Walter Reed and other civilian institutions that help Vietnam Vets with no success. For those of us that participated in the initial program he instituted on his own they do make a difference. With grants available to help fund why does the hospital Director not get on board, see the importance and provide the help to make these programs flourish? By the way, Asheville is the first to implement these programs and has been asked to brief their program and results to other VA sites for consideration and help in implementing at their location!
