    Oh yeah, now about Trump's promise to "take care of veterans"...like everything else this ignorant lying thriving reprobate touches, if there is nothing in it for him or one of his...it is expendable.

    As much as I agree with you, this isn't all on DA. The VA as been screwing vets forever imo. Of course with all of DA's bs he can address this and correct it in a minute.

    I still firmly believe that any vet who qualifies for VA benefits should be enrolled in Tricare and be given a id card that will let them access facilities at any military installation. Thus no need for the VA to exist.

    I wasn't "blaming" Trump for this; only pointing out that he promised to "take care of veterans" and while it is still early, it wasn't one of his "first" items as was the removing EPA and other regulations that protect the public and workers and favor "big business" and responding to the "wants" of the NRA and doing away with regulations banning lead in hunting and fishing bullets and gear. I agree with the TRICARE option absolutely!

    You know, I worked for the Feds for 33 years, beginning as an Army civilian employee, with USDA for only a short period of time, Dept of Justice and then the Dept of Homeland Security--never in any of those 33 years did I ever see such a disregard from employees to do a good decent job as has been reported throughout the VA. I know that there are plenty of good employees within the VA; however, they seem to have more than their fair share of bad employees, particularly at the top.

    This has been going on since the 60's that I know of. I opted for a DoD retirement rather than deal with the VA. The Sgt. Major at the hospital I was in suggested strongly which way to go when the choice was given. I have a file with the VA and have gone there 3 times in 50 years. Everybody says it needs change but nothing happens. That is why I advocate for the demise of the VA and give those eligible Tricare or let them avail themselves to any military facility.

    As you say there are some real dedicated people who work there and do a wonderful job. Some get good service with claims. But imo they are in the minority. It seems that every few months there is another horror show at another VA facility.

    Thinking about this, I have never met a single person who retired as a employee of the VA. Curious...

    He'd show me the way according to him in return for my personal check

    This is so misleading!

    One could infer that all vets could avail themselves to this program and that would be wrong..

    This is an extension of a about to expire bill. It is a very small step that helps only a few. But it is at least a step.

    It appears that this study from 2015 may have been released recently.

    Well, I'd bet it isn't news to the vets who 's cases were mis-handled.

    Further it must be that Boston is behind the times, front page news there.

    Actually you bring up a very good point. The VA has forever been very good at burying everything. 2015 is probably current for those folks.

    This is so sad. The VA had the info on this vet since 2010 but choose to ignore it.

    The VA kept this "news" buried for 7 years.

    This is beyond sad, it should be criminal...my prayers and hope are that now, armed with this information, this man get all the help and benefits to which he is rightfully entitled and that he gets some relief for his condition that will allow him to live out his life in a meaningful way. At the very least he should receive benefits retroactively and an award for the unnecessary pain and suffering he has endured even if he has to sue each of the doctors he saw at the VA hospital, after the MRIs showed the mass, on an individual basis--their malpractice should not be considered within the scope of their employment (maybe even a suspension of their licenses to practice medicine is appropriate).
