The latest survey reveals widespread mistrust in the VA

A survey released Tuesday found that nearly half of the public has a negative view of the Veterans Administration.

The study by the RAND Corporation, a nonprofit think tank, found that 62% of the American public expressed trust in the agency, up from 53% last year.

But more than half (56%) of those surveyed said they were dissatisfied with the VA.

The survey was conducted by a representative sample of 1,600 adults between July 10 and July 17, 2016.

The VA has struggled with the fallout from the VA Accountability Review Board, which recommended in March that it cut 1,500 positions, cut $1.6 billion in spending and cut funding for medical care for veterans who were diagnosed with cancer.

The cuts would have cut VA services by roughly 10% and caused the agency to lose more than $5 billion in revenue over the next 10 years, the VA said at the time.

The VA has been working with Congress to address the issues of its budget and operations since the budget proposal was released.

President Donald Trump has promised to “save” the VA, which has a staff of 2,000 and has spent $1 trillion since it opened in 1946.

Trump said during his first campaign stop in Florida in 2016 that the VA was a “broken system.”

The president has also said he would not take over the VA if he is elected, and has repeatedly said he wants to privatize it.

In the past year, several prominent VA executives have resigned or been fired.

The department has also been rocked by revelations that VA hospitals treated and cared for some veterans who needed care that they knew to be inappropriate.
