    So, you ask a top-notch person to do the impossible for too many veterans with too few resources and too little money and then, when he can't meet expectations, is excoriated and then fired.

    Wonder why the VA hospital administrators felt that they had to falsify records to keep their jobs?

    I want my government to be big enough to drown Grover Norquist in a bathtub.

      it's about widespread fraud that may have gotten more than a few people killed.

      If this about failing to meet wait time requirements Shinseki would still have a job. It isn't. It's about people that Shinseki is responsible for lying so they could keep their bonuses.

      Really, there is a ton of misplaced sympathy here.

        ...who've received care from the VA who do NOT want him to resign. Lots of misplaced sympathy there, the poor misguided fools.
