Thread Name: BS: News on VA?
Subject: RE: BS: News on VA?
Apologies, Claymore. The last I had heard, where bush denied funding Congress wanted an increase. I had seen nothing and wondered if someone had noticed information I had missed. I, too, think the VA is filled with compassionate, caring staff who do as much as they can with limited funds, dealing now with increasing numbers and no funding. Bush, as the COIC and President has reneged on a social contract where one's life is a role of the die against health care. One of the young reservists aboard the USS Cole said "this is not fair, I did not sign up for this." Or, the young Army nurses hundreds of miles behind the lines in the First Gulf War. I have called. One of our Senators is Olumpia Snow, I got the most in-depth response from Susan Collin's office and now, nothing. I merely cited an example with which I have first-hand knowledge.
