*** begin quote ***

Department of Veterans Affairs:

To fulfill President Lincoln’s promise “To care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan” by serving and honoring the men and women who are America’s veterans.

VA hospitals:

By June 5, 2014, Veterans Affairs internal investigations had identified 35 veterans who had died while waiting for care in the Phoenix VHA system.

An internal VA audit released June 9, 2014 found that more than 120,000 veterans were left waiting or never got care and that schedulers were pressured to use unofficial lists or engage in inappropriate practices to make waiting times appear more favorable.

On June 11, 2014, the Federal Bureau of Investigation opened a criminal investigation of the VA.President Barack Obama ordered a White House investigation.

On June 27, 2014, Obama’s Deputy Chief of Staff, Rob Nabors, reported “significant and chronic system failures” and a “corrosive culture” inside the Veterans Health Administration.

*** end quote ***

Unfortunately, it can’t be eliminated as long as the politicians and bureaucrats keep the girls and boys fighting in one Deity forsaken place or another.

Argh!

* Bring the girls and boys home NOW!

* Put all “regular care” out in the real private economy NOW.

* Figure out how to move the specialized care in the private economy NOW.

* Shrink the VA to only absolutely essential functions.

IMHO
