GOOD TRUMP: The President Delivers for Veterans

The president goes a long way toward reforming the VA
Following through on a campaign promise, President Donald Trump on Friday morning signed legislation aimed at reforming the famously dysfunctional Department of Veterans Affairs.
The Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act, which Congress passed earlier this month, removes some of the delays and red tape that make it difficult for VA supervisors to fire underperforming employees.
It also creates a new office within the VA to advise the secretary “on all matters of the Department relating to accountability, including accountability of employees of the Department, retaliation against whistleblowers, and such matters as the Secretary considers similar and affect public trust in the Department.”
The VA has been attempting reforms since 2014, when dysfunction at VA hospitals resulted in several veterans dying while awaiting care. During his presidential campaign, Trump frequently criticized the VA, calling it the “most incompetently run agency in the United States.”
