The inability to quickly fire even the worst VA employee is a major impediment to eliminating the VA’s toxic culture. Despite VA Secretary receiving the power to fire senior executives in 2014 it has not been aggressively used and more pressure must applied to see the changes our veteran’s need.
Many respected military leaders like Admiral Mike Mullen and General James Mattis agree that our growing national debt is the greatest long-term national security threat facing our country.

We advocate for stronger laws to ensure that our active duty military personnel are able to exercise their right to vote.
