VA whistleblower Scott Davis is set to appear before Congress to testify about the massive mismanagement and malfeasance he says he witnessed at a Veterans Affairs office in DeKalb County, Georgia.
Yesterday, Davis, who works as a Program Specialist at the VA’s Health Eligibility Center, told Fox News host Neil Cavuto that there was “so much pressure on the employees to get stuff done so that management can meet goals, it’s easy to make mistakes, it’s easy to have mishaps,” and employees often “rushed through the application process to hit goals for members of management. Focus our attention to applications based on specific campaigns,” including ObamaCare.
Davis recently received a letter from House Veterans Committee Chairmen Jeff Miller inviting him to come and testify before Congress.
Davis also told Cavuto that he and other VA employees “put incoming applications aside so we could focus on the [Affordable Care Act] related applications that came in over last summer” because Obamacare was one of the “special campaigns coming out of DC.”
When asked how he felt about testifying before Congress, Davis said he feels “honored to get a chance to speak before the Congress and honored that I get a chance to represent the concerns of the nation’s veterans.”
“There’s no accountability from the top down. People do what they want, whenever they want because they know no one’s going to do anything,” Davis continued. “There’s actually going to be transparency as well, because it’s going to be on camera, before the Congress and the entire country, so there will be no way for people to hide their dirty little secrets at the VA anymore.”
