If there is one thing our government has gotten absolutely awesome at during Obama’s tenure, it is one agency offering criminals in another cover. In an example that should leave every idiot that has made the case that health insurance companies are evil an unaccountable with that look idiots have when they are caught humping their dogs, we find out that nobody at the VA paid for either abuses or mismanagement. It is the age of big government after all:
Two Department of Veterans Affairs administrators in Phoenix who were suspended at the outset of a crisis over delayed patient care will return to work Monday, 19 months after they were put on paid leave and given termination notices.
Lance Robinson, associate director of the Phoenix VA Health Care System, will be assigned as a strategic planner at the VA’s southwest regional office in Gilbert, known as VISN 18, according to spokeswoman Jean Schaefer. Brad Curry, the system’s chief of Health Administration Services, will serve as a health systems specialist.
The two men have been focal points in a controversy over the VA’s perceived failure to hold leaders accountable for mismanagement and misconduct that caused a breakdown in care for veterans in Arizona and nationwide.
In recent weeks, members of Congress assailed the VA and interrogated Undersecretary David Shulkin at an Arizona field hearing of the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, demanding to know why no action has been taken.
Under questioning from Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., Shulkin testified that the VA has been unable to complete internal investigations of the two men because the U.S. Attorney’s Office prevented interviews with key witnesses amid a criminal investigation.
But in a letter this week to the committee chairman, Robinson’s attorney, Julia Perkins, said Shulkin’s testimony was inaccurate. Perkins said federal prosecutors turned down a criminal referral months ago, and her client has been through more than 12 hours of internal VA interviews. She said VA bosses realize they cannot make a legal case to fire Robinson.
Shulkin and other officials at VA headquarters have refused to comment on those assertions.
McCain said Friday he was not aware Robinson and Curry were returning to work until informed by The Arizona Republic.
I guess they are all above the law, because the law, of course, is for the little people! We need Hillary in charge. That will certainly change this sordid shit, right? Have no doubt that this is exactly the future of government controlled healthcare. The people in charge will only face justice when they piss off the democrat cabal (like the godfather in Chicago), and the service will suck ass. But SJW can all virtue signal because now we have healthcare for all. That the quality of that healthcare will be far lower than anything we have today and cost far more, will not factor in.
