DR. David J. Shulkin,the VA secretary-- who had 100-0 Senate approval-- has only one objective:' to get the organization singly focused on making the V.A. work better for vets;' BUT he is under attack by the WH, so his press offic e reached out to the news media, to publicize concerns that appointees in his office were “trying to undermine the department from within.” Trump has surrounded himself with advisers supportive of greater privatization--such as a former senior adviser to the Koch-funded group, who he appointed as the Veterans Affairs Adviser for the White House’s Domestic Policy Council. The dispute boiled over last month when the department’s inspector general released a a scathing report on a business trip that he took, which he disputed, and he suspected that the same faction could be behind ominous-sounding reports that have appeared in the press.'
