    Leaked Document: Nearly One-Third Of 847,000 Veterans In Backlog For VA Health Care Already Died

    WASHINGTON -- More than 238,000 of the 847,000 veterans in the pending backlog for health care through the Department of Veterans Affairs have already died, according to an internal VA document provided to The Huffington Post.

    Scott Davis, a program specialist at the VA's Health Eligibility Center in Atlanta and a past whistleblower on the VA's failings, provided HuffPost with an April 2015 report titled "Analysis of Death Services," which reviews the accuracy of the VA's veteran death records. The report was conducted by staffers in the VA Health Eligibility Center and the VA Office of Analytics.

    Flip to page 13 and you'll see some stark numbers. As of April, there were 847,822 veterans listed as pending for enrollment in VA health care. Of those, 238,657 are now deceased, meaning they died after they applied for, but never got, health care.

    Well, one way to curb the boom in an ageing population and cost of health care.....do not think this is JUST in the good Ol USA. This is partly in my humble opinion that because the Western world has been fed the lie that the population is much too swollen, births decline and thus robbing ourselves of a new generation of taxpayers.

    Western civilisation deserves to decline,because it has lost its way in that money is NOT a god ,people are IMPORTANT...and the prince of the world is laughing wholeheartedly! IMHO.
