GAO Has Cited VA for 'Unnecessary Deaths,' Incompetence for More than 20 Years


As the Obama Administration scrambles to respond to the Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) scandal, it’s worth noting that the Government Accountability Office (GAO) has been citing the agency for incompetence, mismanagement and abuse for more than twenty years now.

It’s had problems ever since the Department of Veterans Affairs Act of 1989 turned the Veterans Administration into a Cabinet-level department under Pres. George Bush.

Since that time, the GAO has cited the VA for problems with structure, planning, practices, coordination, organization, and efforts to employ corrective measures.
