Trump Promises VA Reform

President-Elect Trump is promising to eliminate the claims backlogs and inefficient services that continue to beset the Department of Veterans Affairs. “Too many of our nation’s veterans are not receiving the timely and effective care they need, wherever and whenever they need it,” the president-elect’s web site states. Trump promises that VA will deliver state-of-the-art treatment and resolve veterans’ claims in a timely manner. “Dishonest” VA employees will lose their jobs as well, while those in the department who work hard to serve veterans will be rewarded with promotions, according to the web site.
