Former President Barack Obama was known for mistreating American veterans, but no one ever really realized how deep the mistreatment went.
Remember when Obama pretended to show remorse for slain American soldiers as he lied through his teeth about what was happening in Benghazi? We sure do.
A shocked President Donald Trump recently terminated 500 Veterans Affairs employees and another 200 were suspended after it was revealed how poorly they treated American veterans.
The Gateway Pundit reports:
The Department of Veterans made public a list of employee terminations, demotions, and suspensions. It has expressed that this list week be updated weekly in an effort to add more transparency to the department following Congresses’ push to increase the scope of power by the VA secretary.
President Trump expressed his frustration with the VA back on the campaign trail, stating that the VA was “probably the most incompetently run agency in the United States.”
The bulk of firings were directed at lower level VA workers, such as house keepers and food service workers, after learning that initial oversight was not implemented. Many of these employees were discovered to be felons, sex offenders, or generally incompetent. This has lead to poor care, and at times death from neglect, for our veterans.
VA Secretary David Shulkin published a written statement where he claimed that he would do everything in his power to make his organization more accountable and transparent to the American taxpayers.
“Veterans and taxpayers have a right to know what we’re doing to hold our employees accountable and make our personnel actions transparent,” he wrote. “Posting this information online for all to see, and updating it weekly, will do just that.”
