So much for things improving at the Veterans' Administration
Veterans who died homeless, wronged by the V.A. or "on a waiting list," must be turning in their graves at the thought that those who failed them are receiving congratulations on their "achievements." If you happen to grieve for such veterans, the handshake between the V.A.'s past and present will make your blood boil.

While the V.A., VSOs, and the American Legion are discreet about the event, ex-V.A. secretary McDonald brags about the unveiling of his portrait to anybody who will listen. In his blog post from October 25, 2019, McDonald spares no detail of the ceremony in his honor and rejoices over V.A. secretary Willkie's "complimentary" and "generous" comments. And voilà, Mr. Willkie: Donald Trump's "you are fired!" suddenly has less meaning.

McDonald, who undoubtedly fancies himself as a connoisseur of art (during his reign, the V.A. blew millions on artwork), thanked the artist, Laurel Stern Boeck, but forgot to mention that she had already immortalized him as a CEO of Procter & Gamble.

Suitably named, the EGO (Eliminating Government-Funded Oil-Painting) Act, long promoted by U.S. senator Bill Cassidy (R-La.), was signed into law by President Trump in March 2018. Let's hope taxpayers won't have to pick up the tab for the VA's crafty antics this time.

After his theatrical tenure in the V.A., Robert McDonald should still be experiencing aphonia (from countless speeches) and tendonitis (from ribbon cutting), but it seems he hasn't lost his appetite for compliments. Between chairing Rally Point Networks and sitting for his portrait, he managed to squeeze a gig on Ukrainian TV. In the country's capital, Kyiv, McDonald acted every inch the V.A. secretary — from touring hospitals to meeting local ministers. The ex-secretary, who describes himself as a Republican, must feel nostalgic about his days as the V.A.'s leader. Why else would he display his picture with Obama and Biden on the first page of his blog?

As a disabled, Vietnam era USMC, I have been dealing with the V.A. for over 44 years. From my perspective, it is bad. FAKE NEWS V. FAKE VA [link to proffer.us]

Although there are some that have good intentions, as the tech that told me I suffered from Agent Orange, but they are very few ... in this veterans opinion.

The V.A. has been infiltrated, as our .gov has. Most of these folks would rather see veterans quietly dying ... as witnessed by the 22 vet per day suicide rate, many in a V.A. parking lot, while they deny benefits or acknowledge illness.

Government run healthcare.

I have worked in several V.A. facilities and there is nothing that can be done to save most of them. You can’t fix stupid. You can’t fix incompetence and it isn’t worth the effort to fix lazy.

Trump is pumping billions into the V.A. - But it won’t have the impact he thinks it will.

I believe this is what the Mission Act is, something that will drain them of their resources while outsourcing services for vets. A win for vets!

But V.A. really needs a leader ...
Steve Bannon would be PERFECT!
