Rubio: Bad Managers Still Need To Be Held Accountable For VA Scandal

Apr 23, 2015 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), the original Senate sponsor of The VA Management Accountability Act of 2014, which became law last year as part of broader legislation reforming the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), issued the following statement regarding a new report detailing how very few people have been held accountable for the VA scandal: 

“The purpose of last year’s VA reform law was to take people out of positions where they can do damage to our veterans but also prevent a broader culture of incompetence. It’s clear the law’s measures are not working swiftly enough, and the VA is in danger of further entrenching a work environment where people get too comfortable in the belief that their jobs are safe even if their performance is terrible.

“I’m very concerned that the VA secretary has apparently not been straightforward with the American people and with Congress about the department’s use of the firing authority it was granted last year. Our veterans who have been victimized by incompetence and ethical lapses at the VA deserve better, and Congress should step up with new measures to do right by them.”
