Criticism of Veterans Affairs Secretary Mounts Over Backlog in Claims

Although some have praised Secretary Shinseki for his bold plans to end veteran homelessness and the VA Benefits Claims backlog, others are still very critical of the problems that continue to exist in the Department of Veterans Affairs.  A recent New York Times article by James Dao highlights the growing unrest with Secretary Shinseki and the ongoing issues at the VA. “Though the numbers have grown, delays in processing disability claims are nothing new, and neither are complaints about the backlog. Just last year, some veterans advocates tried to make the backlog a presidential campaign issue. They failed. But this year, something changed: the criticism grew louder and perhaps more partisan, and began reaching a wider audience.” See the full story here.
