Whistleblowers in the Department of Veterans Affairs

“VA leadership has repeatedly failed to respond to concerns raised by whistleblowers about patient care at VA,” Davis said in prepared testimony. “Despite the best efforts of truly committed employees at HEC and the Veterans Health Administration, who have risked their careers to stand up for veterans, management at all levels ignored or retaliated against them for exposing the truth.”

Few noticed that the first week of the Iraq War, in 2003, the Rethugs slipped through CUTS to the Veterans Administration. Even as they were manufacturing thousands of new casualties, they were cutting the medical funding for their own troops. I was shocked at the time at the brazen, disgusting, calculated evil. But that’s pretty much business as usual.
