Apr 21, 2014 House passes H.R. 4031: Department of Veterans Affairs Management Accountability Act of 2014. You can find the story on it @ https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/hr4031 with the text of the bill @ https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/hr4031/text

Write or call your Senator and ask him/her to support this bill: S, 2013 which is same as the House-passed bill below. More information @ https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/s2013

Oh yeah, the Senate might do something about it if Senator Reid even allows it to reach the floor or even be debated.

Apply the pressure! :mad::mad::mad:

I'm applying as much pressure as I can from my end, MSG. I have a Republican Senator as well as a Democrat & so far I haven't heard from the Dem. My Representative is all but useless but some of the Reps in WI are Republicans Paul Ryan & Jim Sensenbrenner & they're all but foaming at the mouth over this scandal. Heads MUST roll over this!

My own personal feelings about this are simple - nothing will really be done unless and until those responsible for this go before a court of law. Have local district attorneys and state attorney generals convene grand juries to investigate and indict those whose negligence has caused the deaths of so many. Then, take them before judges and juries and make them defend their actions.

Maybe a private organization like the American Medical Association can have some leverage. Even though I'm not sure if any MDs were at fault it's entirely possible that some are involved with VA management & maybe they can lose their privilege to practice medicine or be involved in any sort of job in health care. I think that denying health care to anyone should be considered malpractice.

I advised my son to not use the VA. He's off of active duty from the 75th Ranger Regt but stayed in the Reserve. He's a Police Officer & has a good health insurance package as well as Tricare. So far he's had good treatment at VA but only for vision & physical exams required by his Reserve unit.
