You just got to love our president, his leadership, and his directness and getting the job done in spite of all the naysayers that are nothing more than Democratic liberals. Not only is President Trump fixing the VA that Obama failed to do, but he is also making Obama’s corrupt VA officials pay the price for because of their negligence all these years. Nearly 500 VA employees have just been terminated, and an additional 200 have been suspended for their shady conduct.
Via Stars and Stripes: “Veterans and taxpayers have a right to know what we’re doing to hold our employees accountable and make our personnel actions transparent,” VA Secretary David Shulkin said in written statement. “Posting this information online for all to see, and updating it weekly, will do just that.”
The list, posted online Friday, contained the occupation, VA region, the date and type of disciplinary action for approximately 800 VA employees disciplined since Jan. 20. For privacy reasons, the VA is not posting employees’ names.
The initiative is part of the new VA Office of Accountability and Whistleblower Protection that Trump created in April with an executive order. Navy and Air Force veteran Peter O’Rourke is directing the office and advising Shulkin on the discipline of VA managers and employees.
Shulkin gained more firing authority after Trump signed legislation June 23 establishing more repercussions and a faster firing process for VA employees. Trump, Shulkin, and many veterans and supporters of the legislation said the new rules would allow the VA to root out poor-performing employees and a perceived culture of corruption in the department.”
About time! Now we finally have a Commander In Chief we can be proud of. Veterans and military first! Not the traitors who did nothing for the military! Veterans deserve the respect and the best care they can get. They served to protect us.
Hopefully, the veterans will get some help with there needs!!! Long forgotten the men and women who have fought for the American people and America should get some compensation!!! America should reinstate the military DRAFT!!! It would make younger generation appreciate where they live!!
Our Veterans deserve no less than the absolute best we can provide them. This should never have been let go to this point. 8 years of empty promises… how many of our veterans lost their lives while Obama did nothing.
Thank you, President Trump, for doing the right thing for those who sacrificed so much…
