COMPASSIONATE GOVERNMENT: Watchdog: Vets Affairs chairman Miller calls for top VA official’s ouster. “Failure to fix the long waits veterans face when seeking disability benefits earned through military service warrants the removal of the top Department of Veterans Affairs executive directly responsible, according to the chairman of the House committee overseeing the agency. The call from Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla., for the ouster of Allison Hickey, VA’s under secretary for benefits, comes as officials there face possible sanctions for deliberately misleading a federal court about an illegal rule that makes it harder for veterans to prove they are entitled to benefits.”

If a corporation did this sort of thing, Democratic politicians would be calling for scalps.
