If the 'underperforming' employees include politicians that act as roadblocks by adding in a bunch of pork legislation to VA assistance bills, then, yes. I dont see why there is such a problem in the VA. The bottpm line is we have veterans that have served our country and earned every bit of the care promised by the government. We have the dept of veterans affairs to see to the care of the veterans. So, who is screwing this up?? Veteran needs care, they go to the care provider. The veterans I know are holding up their end of the operation, so who does that leave? Throw this bill out and try again. Try starting from the top to fix the problem instead of the bottom.
