If true, why did he toss him overboard?

He resigned to “spend more time with his family” I’m sure.

Obviously not best secretary. Obama is really annoying.

Praising someone for dereliction of duty?? That's one great CIC. NOT!

Great example why the government should never be allowed to run anything - except perhaps the military. And that one I’m not even sure about.

Incompetence is covered up and the inept are promoted and rewarded - so long as they are ideological allies of those in power.

This attitude is understandable.

After all - King Obama has already rated himself as one of the best presidents ever.

Obama said that it's unfortunate ( ha!!) the reports about abuse at the VA did not get to Shinseki.

OH, let's accept Obozo's statement as accurate. That means that ALL of the senior administrators at the VA should be fired because they withheld vital information from their boss.

What amazes and astonishes me is that Sinseki, a retired FOUR star General and the former Army Chief of Staff, could not sort out the VA!

Who are they going to find, particularly since the Ophonybama administration is a real-life incarnation of the gang that can’t shoot straight, to fix VA?

It is broken so bad, and the embedded Unions are so corrupt and controlling, VA probably cannot be fixed. Certainly not by anybody that the Ophonybama Regime could stomach.

I’d recommend disestablishing or totally privatizing the VA!

Money saved by closing VA could be used to provide private health care for Veterans, like the Tri Care for Life program already in place.

And, we’d all be better off!

The problem with giving people vouchers is that there’s no guarantee they’d be able to find a doctor or hospital to take it.

He can’t do that, then he’d have to fire all of his advisors who kept him uninformed (according to him). Holder (fast and furious) etc.

There are those who have served that will agree with the above too.

The problem with getting care outside the VA is when it comes to getting or keeping disability. The VA treats any treatment outside the VA as if it didn't happen thus the 3-5 year backlogs for Vets to get rated.

They will also drop or lower your disability if they think you don't have the disability anymore. If your disability rating gets lowered you lose pay and/or benefits etc..

I have Tricare and a private insurance but still use the VA because I want everything on their official record.

If I have an emergency I use Tricare at a real hospital so I get treatment from real ER doctors.

FYI if you have Tricare and go to the VA they will bill Tricare.

Hmmm. Let's see. He was, mr. president, in your own words, the best VA Secretary ever and did exemplary service. If that is all true, they why for the love of God, would accept the resignation of such a qualified individual? Makes you look rather STUPID to let such an individual escape your administration. Or maybe the teleprompter was just telling more lies? Which is it Odumbass? Are you so ignorant of management that you would let someone if his caliber just leave? Or were you lying, again. Could be. I saw your lips move so good chance there was a lie being uttered. You are such a loser. Jan 2017 can't get here fast enough. Why don't you quit and get a job organizing all the Progressives, Socialists, Marxists, Mao & Che loving scumbags you call voters and sue the Federal government to secede from the Union because you all agree that the big government you all want can only be accomplished without the Constitution. I'd vote to give you 20 - 25 states and would even give you half of all revenues collected prior to the schism. You all just have to utterly renounce your current citizenship PLUS be willing to to be arrested and deported if ever found in our country and not yours for the first 40 years.Huh, what's that? Is that silence that I hear you bunch of maggot infested cowards?

I am quite sure that there are smart people out there who can figure out a way to get the bureaucracy and the unions out of the VA, and probably provide better care for Vets, to boot.

The question is, do they have the ‘nads to do it?
