WLOX Editorial: VA investigation should be a criminal investigation

Posted: Updated:

The more we hear about the Veterans Administration investigation, the more disgusting it gets. Now we are hearing that this may turn into a criminal investigation.

The wrongdoing is systemic. 57 thousand Vets waiting more than 90 days to see a doctor. Another 64 thousand have never seen a doctor at all. And the motivation seems to be money.

The administration dangled bonuses in front of administrators if they cut their wait times to 14 days. Instead of meeting the goal, it appears they just lied about it to get the bonus. While Veterans were suffering and dying from lack of medical care, the administrators were fattening their own pocketbooks by falsifying reports.

Is this criminal? You're darn right it is.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
