Our military veterans deserve to be treated with respect and honor.
But under Barack Obama, America’s great military waxed and waned and eventually started to fall apart. The VA in particular took a serious hit, and has unfortunately become a running joke.
Our brave heroes deserve much, much better.
That’s why President Donald Trump is taking the necessary strides to improve the environment for those who served their country.
This includes the Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act, which is going into effect today. For the first time in a long while, vets have reason to cheer.
The bill makes it easier for the VA to fire employees who aren’t up to snuff, and cements the executive order Trump signed earlier this year.
From the previously published report:
“The order will establish the Office of Accountability and Whistleblower Protection within VA, which has for years taken heat from lawmakers and stakeholders for failing to quickly root out problematic employees.”
The bill passed easily, as well it should: It passed the Senate by voice vote and passed in the House of Representatives by a 368-55 count.
America has known about the rampant problems with the VA for years and Obama did nothing to help. In fact, he basically ignored the VA and much of the military during his term.
But now we have a President who isn’t about to let our veterans fall by the wayside and THAT is well worth applauding!
