When Barack Hussein Obama first ran for president, he repeatedly said things like “our veterans deserve the best” and “we’re going to fix the VA.” Unfortunately, he didn’t follow through with these promises, and has instead treated our veterans worse than almost any president in history.
On August 7, 2014, Obama signed the Veterans’ Access, Choice and Accountability Act, which was meant to improve benefits available to our vets and “provide real accountability for incompetent or corrupt senior managers, the law: Authorizes VA to fire or demote Senior Executive Service (SES) employees and Title 38 SES equivalent employees for poor performance or misconduct.”
The law was passed after the wait-time scandal, and it aimed to give the administration the ability to quickly fire employees. Now that this scandal is out of the headlines, however, the Obama administration is singing a different tune…
According to The Federalist Papers, the Department of Veterans Affairs notified Congress quietly notified Congress last Friday that they will no longer enforce this law. Patriotic lawmakers were stunned at the blatant disrespect Obama was showing our veterans.
“It is outrageous and unconscionable that the VA is choosing to blatantly ignore all of the accountability reforms set in place by the Veterans Choice Act,” said Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., who is Chair of the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs.
