‘Disgraceful’: Remember those 60 people the VA said it fired over scandal? Yeah -- not even close

Remember back in February when Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald assured us on “Meet the Press” that he was cracking heads and 60 VA employees had been fired for their role in the “manipulated wait times” scandal?

We’ve got 60 people that we fired who have manipulated wait times. We’ve got about 100 senior leaders who are under investigation now whose performance reviews have been deferred until we get feedback from the IG and Department of Justice. So we’re holding people accountable.

Yeah, not true at all. The New York Times reports today that the actual number of people fired was “at most, three”:

Disgraceful, indeed.

And not only were just three people fired, only eight total — out of 280,000 employees  — received any sort of discipline whatsoever:

The documents given this month to the House Committee on Veterans Affairs, which provided them to The New York Times, show that the department punished a total of eight of its 280,000 employees for involvement in the scandal. One was fired, one retired in lieu of termination, one’s termination is pending, and five were reprimanded or suspended for up to two months.

So, what’s the solution? The Washington Post’s Charles Lane proposes this morning that maybe it’s time to get rid of the VA altogether:
