More whistleblowers detail
VA abuses, suffer retaliation

Fox News, by Jennifer Griffin

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 5/16/2014 8:50:57 PM

The allegations of wait times, delayed care for veterans and cooked books began in Phoenix, but new revelations by two more Veterans Affairs whistleblowers in two different states suggest the VA problems are endemic. “What really bothered me was that this delay was a direct result of this extremely low sense of caring for the patient,” said Dr. Jose Mathews, the chief psychiatrist for the VA Medical Center in St. Louis starting in Nov 2012. Mathews and another whistleblower in Texas detailed their concerns to Fox News. According to Mathews, he noticed that the doctors he oversaw who were responsible

Comments:
How surprising. s/o I thought whistleblowers were supposed to be protected. Silly me. No wonder more of them stay silent. Going up against this dangerous regime would be absolutely terrifying.

What will help move this along is that the dems are behind the effort.They don´t want to be seen as indifferent to the vets getting shafted.Political suicide.

Just like the IRS scandal, this VA travesty is part of a plan concocted in the WH. Not to worry, though, the media will protect and defend their guy.

Maybe they should have pulled a "Snowden". s/o

That´s for all those who think Snowden should have become a whistle blower.

It´s not SAFE or intelligent to be a whistle blower in this day and age.

I think Hanlon´s razor applies here. This is what happens when political hacks are appointed to positions which are above their ability. The Obama administration is loaded with these people. John "reporting for duty" Kerry is a prime example.

It must be very difficult to work in this administration and have a moral compass. Evidently, you check that at the door and just robotically do what you are told to do. Most doctors are concerned about the health of their patients. It is imperative that they step forward when they see neglect and abuse from policies they are forced to inact. I commend anyone who will confront this administration because they know there will be repercussions. However, I hope this opens the flood gates and they come forward in droves to tell the truth. Medical care should not be based on rules and regulations written by bureaucrats. I fear this is where health care in this country is headed. As goes the VA, so goes Obamacare.

This is not a problem that just started with the Obama administration although the scheduling games began with them. The VA has not given our veterans quality care for decades. We can say our veterans deserve the best medical care, but we deceive ourselves if we think the VA is the place they will get it.

Start with those who provide the care. How does the VA recruit MDs? If you go through medical school and all the years of training afterwards, do you really see graduates wanting to work for the government? I have served in the military as a registered nurse, but I have spent more time working in the private sector. I have known doctors who work at the VA and doctors who work for top notch medical centers. I cannot see what would attract a doctor to work in a VA environment, unless it is the limited hours and retirement benefits. I am not trying to demean the service of doctors who work for the VA, I´m saying that´s not where the best doctors work. If our veterans deserve the best, then it probably won´t be found in a government institution unless you are talking about our best military hospitals.

Maybe there was a time when the VA could provide veterans the care they deserve. I don´t think it is possible to reach that goal in America today. I would relieve the VA of its duties for medical care, and turn parts of their facilities into long term / rehab facilities if that is needed. Then I would have veterans medical care be provided by the private sector, with insurance policies comparable to Congressmembers options, paid for by the government. Then we might see our veterans receive the care that they deserve.

Where is the outrage from the MSM?

Are whistleblowers only protected when they reveal acts from "Evil Big Business"?

IF the Gov´t is going to take over entire industries such has Health care, they MUST be held to the same standards.

Repeal Obamacare and put the money into caring for Vets! Let most of the money buy care for Vets in the private sector. If they can´t see a doctor in 2 weeks they can draw the funds with a simple declaration documenting their 2 week wait and go to the front of the line in the private system. Better to put the money into care for the vets than building a 300 agency bureaucracy and put the money into pushing paper around. It is interesting that this happens the same week that Obama releases 36,000 hardened illegal alien criminals who should be deported into the streets. No backlog there! Let the Gubmint prove that it can handle what it already has a responsibility to do before it takes on something new.

The VA is now a massive bureaucracy that sucks up 64 billion dollars (in 2013) dollars a year all on it´s own. The levels of "Administrators" and "regional directors" and "Unit Supervisors" is astounding. My last visit, I counted 21 latest Ford Explorers fully equipped as police cruisers, not one single security guy visible...the logos on the side of the vehicles, "VA Police"...Not "security!" but "Police!" All of them had their engines idling and AC units going full blast, yet not one had an occupant. I wondered about that. Every VA facility has an armed security guy who wanders around, drinking coffee and playing solitaire on his computer. The people behind the counter are polite enough- but most of them are volunteers. My waiting times used to be minimal. Now, they are sometimes an hour or more past my appointment time.

I don´t know what is going on. Four years ago, you could set your watch by your appointment time and being called in. Also, my tests for making sure my meds are not harming my liver, are now only once a year...used to be three times a year! And it is true about the hesitations to do the colonoscopy. My Va doc said, new policy is, only once in ten years! Older people need one at least every five. Rediculous!

WASHINGTON – Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson expressed confidence that the federal government can successfully deal with the surge of unaccompanied children crossing the southern border but it likely will cost billions of dollars to deal with the ongoing crisis. In testifying before the Senate Appropriations Committee, Johnson urged lawmakers to adopt the $3.7 billion plan proposed by President Obama, warning that revenues are running low in the Department of Homeland Security because of outlays already used to address the situation. Without the supplemental funding, Johnson told lawmakers, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement will run out of money sometime in

Ex-New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson joined Greta Van Susteren tonight to open up about her firing and her experience at the Times. Abramson also defended a claim she has made previously that the Obama White House is the “most secretive” she’s ever dealt with. Abramson said she’s “never dealt with an administration where more officials… demand that everything be off the record.” She cited criminal investigations against journalists’ sources, including the current case involving Times reporter James Risen, to make the case of just how secretive the White House is. In fact, she told Van Susteren, “I spoke

Attorney General Eric Holder granted an exclusive interview to ABC´s "This Week With George Stephanopoulos" from London, where he was portrayed by ABC as deeply concerned about the global terrorist threat. What stands out from this very rare session — Holder hasn´t been on Sunday network television in four years — is that Holder pulled out the oldest, lamest card in the Obama political deck: President Barack Obama and he are opposed by people who should be suspected of racism. And darned if he didn´t get away with it again. Pierre Thomas, ABC´s Justice Department correspondent, interviewed Holder and asked him why he

President Obama on Wednesday announced new sanctions against Russia for its involvement in Ukraine and other foreign policy moves in response to several international concerns across the Middle East. "We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said from the White House. "And none of these challenges lend themselves to quick or easy solutions, but all of them require American leadership. And as commander in chief, I’m confident that if we stay patient and determined, that we will, in fact, meet these challenges." The president said the new sanctions against Russia -- which hit major Russian banks and

Transcripts of congressional testimony released by the House Armed Services committee are the latest in a growing body of evidence that the 2012 Benghazi attacks were premeditated. Gen. Carter Ham, who at the time led the military´s Africa command, known as Africom, told Congress in April the terrorists who attacked the CIA annex, during the third wave of the terrorist assault, had professional training. "Given the precision of the attack, it was a well-trained mortar crew," Ham said, adding the mortar strike showed "a degree of sophistication and military training that is relatively unusual and certainly, I think, indicates that

A month before former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin called for President Barack Obama to be impeached on the pages of Breitbart News over his lawlessness on illegal immigration, Obama was already concerned that his unilateral actions on immigration could warrant impeachment. He even kind of joked with pro-amnesty activists not to push him to do something that would get him impeached. Here´s how Politico describes what occurred during a private meeting between Obama and pro-amnesty activists last month: President Barack Obama listened to immigration activists run through a long wish list of executive actions – then added a request of

Despite evidence that the current border crisis is at least partly the result of its previous executive action on immigration, the White House decided it was merely a "public relations problem" and moved forward with plans to issue further executive actions along similar lines. The New York Times has a piece out today which contains some new insight into the White House´s thinking about the border crisis and how it relates to the President´s stated goal of taking action on immigration without Congress.

The central weakness of the Republican´s political position in Washington has been on vivid display as the situation at the southern border has devolved into a complete crisis. As tens of thousands of foreign nationals overwhelm the border and render our sovereign boundary meaningless, Republicans in DC are tinkering with legislative fixes they say will address the situation. As if the crisis at the border is the result of some drafting error or a failure to enact some specific law relevant to this precise set of circumstances. It is a fool´s errand.

The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
