Remember the VA

General Shinseki may be gone but his leaving has not salvaged the reputation of the VA.  As Susan Page of USA Today reports:

Just one in five rate the job the government does in providing veterans with medical care as excellent or good, about half the percentage who said that in a Pew Research Center survey in 2011. Then, half rated the care as “only fair” or poor; now seven in 10 do. Those are the lowest ratings in the four times the question has been asked since 2007.

Question is: Will Washington now “move on” and find something else to talk about.  Climate change? Immigration?  Something where the music never stops and you just keep on dancing.
