VA Employee bonuses have gone up again! $177 million in VA employee bonuses were paid out for 2015. That is good news for the parasites at VA, but just another insult to veterans. This money goes to VA big shots, even if they are under investigation or about to be fired for corruption. Nothing could be worse for veterans.
And speaking of insults to veterans, VFW, DAV, VVA, and several other fat cat VSO’s have put up BILLBOARDS PRAISING VA in Phoenix, AZ and other cities. This is a HUGE sell out to VA by the VSO’s and if you keep sending these guys money, you are nuts.
Also, the VA gave up on trying hire MD’s to care for vets a long time ago. For years, if you have gone to the VA, you have probably been seen by a VA nurse, because they are cheaper to hire that medical doctors, like civilians see. But, it just got worse. Now the VA is cutting costs even further, by hiring PHARMACISTS TO PROVIDE PRIMARY CARE TO VETS. Maybe, the next step down the Rabbit Hole, will be for VA to start letting X-Ray technicians provide primary medical care for veterans, then VA janitors.
OK, I am going back out to look for some good news for veterans. If I find any, you will be the first to know! This is Ron Nesler, an Old Soldier, posting from New Harmony, Indiana
