WASHINGTON — The Veterans Affairs Department said it is firing four senior executives as officials move to crack down on wrongdoing following a nationwide scandal over long wait times for veterans seeking medical care, and falsified records covering up the delays.

In another news article:
"TAMPA — The director of the James A. Haley VA Medical Center has a message for every one of the Tampa hospital's more than 4,800 employees: Answer the phone."

In part:

"Collins said veterans had complained in focus groups and town hall meetings about long waits on the phone at Haley."

If the fired employees had their required time in for retirement and had reached retirement age at the time of their firing, they will retain their pensions and full benefits. If they have not reached retirement age at the time of their firing, they can defer their retirement until they reach retirement age and receive a full or partial government pension depending on their total years of service.

About the only way federal employees lose all rights to their pensions and benefits is to be convicted of a serious crime such as treason.

Yeah!!!

Fox News just made the point that at least one of them retired last week and apparently the new Sec can now fire anyone at VA but must give them 5 day notices to appeal the firing. ( so they would have time, in many cases, to retire within the 5 days.)
