Description

ProPublica held Trump accountable for his promises to veterans by investigating the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. We exposed how Trump gave vast influence over the agency to three associates at his Mar-a-Lago resort who have no relevant expertise. We revealed his administration's plans to expand the VA's reliance on the private sector, a controversial agenda backed by the Koch brothers but opposed by most veterans. And we examined the VA's record of using more private health care, finding that it resulted in higher costs for taxpayers and worse service for veterans.
