Another VA Outrage
The Phoenix VA Health Center has been accused of having a "secret" waiting list of veterans needing health care. Allegedly 1400 vets were on the list and 40 of them died before they could receive treatment!
Why the secret list? It created an illusion that vets were timely receiving needed treatment.
Who would benefit from this illusion? Why the Medical Center Director whose base salary is $196,000 received a $9000.00 performance bonus for meeting targets.
This not the first time executive bonuses have been incriminated in a VA scandal. In my humble opinion, this is criminal!
