Miller Statement on Phoenix VA Bosses Returning to Work

Jan 8, 2016

WASHINGTON — Today, Chairman Miller released the following statement regarding the fact that two Phoenix VA Health Care System leaders, who the department targeted for termination and put on paid leave for 19 months, will be returning to work:

                       

“The fact that the department took 19 months to reach the conclusion that employees collecting pay checks should be required to work is simply mind boggling. Right now, VA leaders owe the public an explanation for why they wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars paying these employees to sit at home while apparently taking almost no action to investigate the allegations against them.” – Rep. Jeff Miller, Chairman, House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs
