“September 30, 2013 11:45 pm WASHINGTON, D.C. – Reports from the Veterans Administration in Washington, D.C. last week announced that Dr. Robert Petzel, the Under Secretary for Health for the Veterans Health Administration, will be retiring at the end of the year and a commission to seek his successor is being formed.”
The press release states that the resignation of Dr. Petzel was not because of the exorbitant bonuses he authorized for such Medical Center directors’ as the Director of the now infamous Pittsburgh facility after 6 veterans died there of Legionnaires’ Disease.
On Friday, the Department of Veterans Affairs and many media outlets were announcing the Dr. Robert Petzel, Under Secretary of Health for the Department of Veteran Affairs has resigned. This is a blatant attempt to appease the growing outrage and demands for action of Secretary Shinseki and the current Administration.
It is now obvious that any pacifier that the VA can shove down the throats of every veteran and Congressional leaders will suffice – no matter how lame and false it is.
Make no mistake…VeteranWarriors is convinced that Dr. Petzel was fully cognizant of what was going to happen in the VHA. There are NO surprises in Washington, D.C.!
VeteranWarriors has spent nearly a year meeting with legislators on both sides of the aisle to offer what is a real-world solution to not only the VHA debacle, but a comprehensive, policy-based, and functional model of an overhaul. VeteranWarriors will continue to pursue this course of action, as we believe that a full-scale, enterprise wide overhaul is necessary and the only method that will actually cure what is ailing the Department of Veterans Affairs.
