VA won't fire officials who defrauded agency, pleaded Fifth

A pair of Department of Veterans Affairs officials who invoked their Fifth Amendment rights earlier this month rather than answer questions about their alleged involvement in a fraud scheme will remain at the agency.

Diane Rubens and Kimberly Graves were both demoted and reassigned to other VA offices as a result of their misconduct, the agency said late Friday. They will each receive a pay cut.

Rubens and Graves were accused of manipulating a VA program that pays for the relocation of employees who have to move long distances to take new jobs within the agency.

According to the VA's inspector general, Rubens created a position for herself in Philadelphia and then accepted it, netting $274,000 in the process. Her new job entailed far fewer responsibilities, but she retained the same six-figure salary.

The Obama administration is full of criminal, liars and thieves. 

Veterans are dying and suffering and what do they get lip service from the government and where is the Concerned Veterans for America ? hey Pet stop playing with the foxes on Fox news and do something Jerk !

Those who REFUSE, to fire these SCHEMERS, should themselves be "FIRED"!!!

According to the way the present administration works, I can rob a bank, plead the fifth, get free medicaid, free housing and not have to worry about a thing??????

Privatize VA, open it to alternative healthcare providers. The idea that Big Pharma and AMA are the only ones who know what's right for vets health is ludicrous and part of a big scam aka Psychiatry. Check out The Hidden Enemy...Semper Fi Nam 66-67

Corruption is running rampant in our country!

The bigger question should be, WHO lets them get away with this ?  Politicians have a habit of forgetting THEY work for us ! Sometimes they need to be reminded, this is one of those times.

Our nation is corrupt from top to bottom, the fact if has gone on this long speaks volumes about American citizens.

foo, is that the same as fob ?

   This type of CORRUPTION" you speak of  is "EPIDEMIC" throughout ALL levels of Government, from a small Village, to the Township, the County, State and Federal Governments. NO Governments  are immune from CORRUPTION. The cause of this " Destroyer of Nations " is not a Virus or Bacterium that invades the very heart of Government,, but a HUMAN FRAILTY that occurs when the PEOPLE Elect representatives to serve them in various aspects of the Governmental System, , and when the newly elected official becomes familiar with the work, ultimately finds loop holes,  short cuts financial opportunity's, and other things that lead the employee to take  "Risky or ILLEGAL ACTIONS, " And there we have the beginning of CORRUPTION. But we find that most likely the CORRUPTION has gone on for YEARS and new employees find themselves caught up in the corruption from DAY ONE of their employment and say nothing or does not report the corruption for fear of LOSING THEIR JOB !!!! With the "Job Market as it currently exists, JOBS ARE NOT EASY TO FIND, so in this case the employee, using the logic of a person working to feed the Family and Paying the Mortgage and the other niceties of Family life he chooses to remain quiet and go with the flow. CORRUPTION becomes MORE entrenched at this point and everyone become a participant in the CORRUPTION of GOVERNMENT. Even to the point of LYING to  members of the Legal Department and Justice Department who are  PART of the government body, and who may be or may not be PART of the CORRUPTION  cycle themselves. This causes many who are under investigation "PLEAD THE FIFTH AMENDMENT" and walks out of COURT a free person,

All this happens because MAN/WOMAN have CHOSEN to take the course of ILLEGAL ACTIVITY simply because they" WONTONLY surrendered their OWN MORALITY for the sake of  a job, advancement, and  one's own pleasure. The MORALITY of the average person is lacking when the times get tough, and the excuses ring out that "EVERYBODY ELSE IS DOING IT" is merely a lame excuse for becoming a CORRUPT person. Well we all must stand before GOD some day and account for ourselves. It is clear who GOD will chose to gain the Kingdom of Heaven,

They are immoral because there are no reminders of what good vs evil is. BRING GOD BACK.

FIRE THEM and TAKE THEIR PENSION THEN ARREST THEM.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
