My Take - What has gone on at the VA has been a disgrace......for years!!!! If Congress really wants to fix this all they have to do is send a few of these people to jail.

As for those who didn't violate the law with their outrageous conduct and expenditures.....they need to be sued. Someone has to be held accountable! There's nothing like a good criminal or civil penalty to get people's heads on right.
