WHITE HOUSE PETITION:

End the #MillionVetBacklog & relieve Secretary Shinseki

Four years ago, both President Obama and VA Secretary Shinseki vowed to fix the VA disability claims backlog. Instead, it has increased by 2,000% — and is projected to soon reach one million veterans. A tragic milestone.

Military commanders are not allowed to fail for four years and keep their job. Nor should Secretary Shinseki. It’s time for new VA leadership, and a bold vision for reform.

It is time for the White House to stop making excuses and start delivering results. Only Presidential leadership can end the #MillionVetBacklog. We urge the President to act now.

SIGN OUR WHITE HOUSE PETITION and JOIN THE MOVEMENT TO END THE #MILLIONVETBACKLOG

VA needs leadership that will reform a bloated bureaucracy, join the digital age & deliver timely services for vets. #MillionVetBacklogHead of @DeptVetAffairs Eric Shinseki should take responsibility for VA’s dysfunction. Leaders lead, not make excuses. #MillionVetBacklogNearly 70% of veterans claims are backlogged! The average wait time for a claim in now 273 days. Unacceptable. #MillionVetBacklog RTThe VA needs serious reform. 97% of claims are filed on paper after millions invested in converting to electronic records #MillionVetBacklogIn 2008 @BarackObama vowed to fix the VA backlog. But it has grown worse, increasing by 2,000% in just 4 years. #MillionVetBacklog
