Mark Finchem is running for Congress in Arizona and
Chip Tatum is the Director of VATVA.ORG

As a taxpayer I always want to know where my tax dollars are going and what they are paying for.  Below is a list that was sent to me recently, which helps bring definition to the term “outrageous”.  It is a list of the Phoenix VA Hospital administrators and their salaries.  For clarity, there are no doctors in this list; none of these well paid administrators provides care to a Veteran.  If any of these individuals received an efficiency bonus, it should be charged back to them immediately.  If the whole organization has failed, no individual in it should receive a dime in bonus money.

The mess we have is what you get when the government runs top down, central planning, health care.  Getting your head around these numbers is hard enough, but you will see we must transform the government ourselves, it won’t reform itself.  In business we reduce cost by reducing overhead, AKA “management”.

 Here is a comparison of Governmental salaries to compare the V.A. Administrators to:

Vice President $230,700
Senator $174,000
Representative $174,000
Majority and Minority Leaders $193,400
Speaker of the House $223,500
Chief Justice, U.S. Supreme Court $223,500
Assoc. Justice, U.S. Supreme Court$213,900

Moving the care delivery to non-VA hospitals and doing away with a separate, tax consumption system that is so poorly run would be a net improvement for the world of care delivery that our Vets have been forced to live within.  If we don’t have the resources to actually provide care for our Vets, how is it we have the resources to pay these salaries and have so many individuals who don’t deliver care on the payroll?
