As the Veterans Affairs (VA) fiasco rages on, the House passed a piece of legislation that would make it easier to fire VA employees and make the department more accountable.  It was passed with bipartisan support, with the vote being 390 in favor to 33 against.

There was only one problem.  The bill (VA Management Accountability Act, H.R.4031) failed to pass the U.S. Senate.  Senate Democrats decided mark this Memorial Day by blocking this bill.

Speaker John Boehner wasn't happy:

As we head into the Memorial Day weekend, I am disappointed, and-frankly-shocked that Senate Democratic leaders chose to block legislation that would hold VA managers accountable," Boehner said in a statement.
