Obama Holdover At VA Fighting An Internal Rebellion

Veterans Affairs Secretary, David Shulkin has been feeling the heat this week as questionable travel allowances arose for an 11-day European trip with his wife that mixed business with pleasure. Shulkin has apologized for the trip and declared his intention not to resign and reassuring all that he has the full backing of the President. In the meantime, he has warned those working at the VA that changes are coming and “Anyone that is not able to get on board with that is not going to be able to remain at VA.” More

Even Shulkin’s daughter, Jennifer, came to the VA secretary’s defense tweeting a charge that there is a right wing conspiracy to force her father out and privatize the VA, before deleting the accusation. Shulkin’s chief of staff resigned last week for falsifying an e-mail for the approval of Shulkin’s European trip.  More

  1. Why are there any Obama holdovers left? This is especially disturbing in the VA that has been known to poorly run and that President Trump promised to fix during the campaign.

    Where was this David Shulkin nine months before Chelsea was launched the the world?

  3. The way most expense reports work is that an official above your boss needs to approve the expense to avoid a boss approving his underling such as boss buys inappropriate dinner or travel for the employee, etc. (I’ll scratch your back if you scratch mine). For directors, obviously they should know better than have a COS approve their expenses and really what kind of jerk would think it is OK to spend taxpayers money to bring wife along for business trip? This is not a ‘conspiracy’ it is common sense. VA is rife with this kind of twisted thinking, like the VA hospital director in Philadelphia who got their new house purchased in the new job since they could not get high enough salary raise in the new position.

  4. One of the worst run agencies in the Federal Government system and it is being misdirected by a Barky Obama holdover Skunk Shulkin! His odor of failure and warped thinking is a continual disaster for our long-suffering, mistreated and unappreciated veterans!

  5. So much malfeasance and treachery. So little time.
    But I thought that DJT declared reforming the VA a priority. An obama holdover? In a known festering agency? How can this be?

  6. Go over to thisainthell dot us and read what is said there about the VA and Shulkin.
    Being run by and for military, not safe for children, preachers, and prudes. But I think the IOTW crowd are adult enough to handle it.
