Trump Draining the Swamp at the VA

Jul 11, 2017

Since Donald Trump was inaugurated as President over 500 employees at the Department of Veterans Affairs have been fired, 200 suspended, and 33 more demoted. The new secretary David Shulkin has been aggressively moving to clean up the VA that during the Obama administration was allowed to falsify treatment records of veterans and scores, maybe even hundreds were allowed to die while awaiting treatment.

Under Obama no one was fired because of this. Offenders were either transferred or in one case put on administrative leave with full pay. The American Federation of Government workers actively worked with Democrats to cover up the bad behavior at the VA and keep union members from being terminated. Those days appear to have ended.
