Whistleblower calls for VA czar in open letter to Trump

Mr. President, it is with great disappointment that I inform your office that despite your efforts to reform VA, the agency has done little to improve its operations to enhance Veteran access to healthcare. (Graeme Jennings/Examiner)

Dear Mr. President:

Over the past year, I have contacted your office about outstanding issues with the Department of Veterans Affairs impacting Veteran access to healthcare. These critical issues included; several thousand abandoned calls to the Veteran Crisis Line, 800,000 Veterans in a pending backlog, nearly 300,000 deceased Veterans being denied access to VA healthcare, since 2014 over 100,000 Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans being placed in an illegal pending means test status, and Veterans with critical illnesses being denied access to care.
