Wonder where your tax dollars go?
How about to pay for a doctor at a veterans hospital who hasn't seen a patient, or worked at all in more than a year?
Dr. Dale Klein at the John J. Pershing Medical Center in Poplar Bluff says you've been paying his six figure salary while he sits in a tiny room and does nothing, all day.
He claims it's because he's a whistle blower, and this is retaliation.
Recently, President Trump signed an executive order to create a new whistle blower protection office at the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Will this make a difference?
Dr. Klein hopes so.
