Trump Vows #VeteransReform10 if Elected – SEE IT

Trump Vows #‎VeteransReform10‬

Donald Trump vowed to make 10 veterans’ reforms in a veterans policy speech he delivered at the Westin Virginia Beach Town Center yesterday. The reforms are encapsulated under the hashtag #VeteransReform10.

  1. Appoint a VA Secretary whose mission is “to clean up the VA.”
  2. As lawfully authorized, remove and discipline employees or managers at the VA who failed in their duties.
  3. Ask Congress to pass legislation that grants the VA Secretary the authority “to discipline or terminate any employee that has jeopardized the health, safety, or well-being of a Veteran.”
  4. Appoint a commission to investigate fraud, cover-ups, and wrong-doing at the VA and present findings to Congress. The findings would be the basis for legislative reform.
  5. Those who do their jobs well would have their jobs protected and more opportunity for promotions.
  6. A 24 x 7 White House hotline staffed by real people to address valid complaints against the VA. “I will instruct my staff that if a valid complaint is not quickly addressed that the issue be brought directly to me, and I will pick up the phone and fix it myself. That’s a promise.”
  7. People who waste money in the VA would lose their bonuses. Those who improve service, save lives, and cut waste would receive bonuses. “If an employee finds a smart way to save a large amount of money that also creates better care for Veterans, a small, responsible portion of the money saved will be given as a one-time bonus and rest will be returned to tax payers.”
  8. Visa programs will be reformed to put Veterans at the front of the line.
  9. Increase the number of mental health professionals and outreach to Veterans outside the system.
  10. Veterans will have the choice to seek care within the VA or the “private medical option of their choice.”
