In life and leadership, accountability means consequences for bad behavior.
In Washington, accountability means yet another congressional meeting about another government scandal perpetrated by tax-subsidized corruptocrats who get away with murder.
This week, the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs will hold the 999,999th oversight hearing (give or take a few) on the VA's homicidal, no-fault culture. "In the wake of the biggest scandal in VA history, in which 110 VA medical facilities maintained secret lists to hide long waits for care," the panel notes, "the department has successfully fired just three low-level employees for manipulating wait times. Not a single VA senior executive has been successfully fired for doing the same."
Have you forgotten? President Obama, who proclaimed himself "madder than hell" when the scandal first broke, apparently can no longer be bothered to care as he gallivants around the planet fretting about climate change.
How about some climate change at the toxic VA?
The department in charge of providing care to those who served our country in uniform stuck hundreds of thousands of vets on waiting lists to nowhere. The exact VA scandal death toll remains unknown because of the perpetually crappy state of data entry and management that long predated the latest bureaucratic abominations under the Obama administration.
We do know that in Phoenix alone, an estimated 40 veterans died waiting for care as VA officials cooked the books and cashed in. Former Phoenix VA hospital Director Sharon Helman was one of the few officials finally dismissed for misconduct. But like countless other VA crooks, she was awarded (and allowed to keep) more than $8,000 in publicly funded bonus pay plus a 2 percent pay raise after submitting a self-assessment in which she bragged: "I drove tremendous improvement in primary-care access."

Hussein gwinna fok-us like a Moonbeam on CO2 taxes.
Exactly, that’s those “elegant taxes.” The turkey just refuses to keep foot out of mouth.
Michelle, I’ve been bad.
In consequence, you really do need to spank me....
(Sorry - Gorgeous Michelle Malkin makes me crazy.)
Does anyone know whatever happened to the search to find a diagnosis for Veronica, Michelle’s daughter?
Last I heard, she was at Mayo.
Her symptoms included gasping, not being able to catch her breath...
Scary time for the family.
I hope everything resolved itself. I suspected anxiety/panic disorder. Takes one to know one.
You can’t fire federal employees without a mountain of paperwork nor can you prosecute them for crimes committed under the guise of law. In 1775 people went to war over such governmental behavior.
