Problems Persist At VA As New Overhaul Law Takes Effect

Do problems still persist at the VA? Who is responsible for the long wait times? Are VA employees and leadership taking appropriate steps to help our Veterans get the care they deserve? What will be the result of VA employee malfeasance? Are VA employees negligent in the performance of their duties?

The Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act of 2017 marks Trump's 40th law signed.

President Trump just signed legislation into law and said:

"What happened was a national disgrace and yet some of the employees involved in these scandals remained on the payrolls," Trump said just before signing the bill. "Outdated laws kept the government from holding those who failed our veterans accountable. Today we are finally changing those laws."
