  • The VA has carried over Billions from budget years, money was not the problem. Its bad management, setting cost/performance goals and bonuses that may work for some Government offices but not ones that deal in healthcare/lives. In my dealings with Boise VA I had no problem getting in house Appointments, but anything requiring outside care never materialized. Hopefully those that lied about data for bonuses will be held criminally accountable.

    Agreed the VA is a mess, but why are they scheduled to have almost a half billion dollars in unspent funds from their budget for this year?

    The VA doesn't need more funding.

  • I have moved to several states and the best care I have ever had and heard of is here in Mountain Home and Boise, these guys locally do a great job, compared to OKC and Birmingham.
