I don't take issue with firing truly incompetent employees however as with many other bills, I don't know the subtext. Is this a bill designed to enhance a political party's ability to purge whistleblowers or anti-Trump employees? Or is it truly designed to challenge incompetence? Can we have some kind of assurance that VA employees will be protected from wrongful termination, especially those that speak out against the people calling the shots? Why doesn't Congress put these kinds of rules in place for themselves? This just looks like another case of blame the workers instead of the bureaucracy that makes the system inefficient. Don't they already have measures in place to handle these types of issues? It looks like this bill is being used as a way to go after whistleblowers. If an employee is not doing what their job entails or are mistreating the patients then it has to be documented and their union rep needs to be notified. I don't care who union is, if an employee isn't working out then they can be fired.
