...here you go: our future. CBSNEWS source (hardly "right-wing"). Among the scary slipshot travesties in how we've treated our veterans (revealed by an inspection of VA procedures by its Inspector General and CBS): 16,000 pieces of unopened mail at its Detroit office. Another 132 documents which belonged in veterans' claim files ended up in the shred bins at four regional offices. The inspector general reviewed 390 claims submitted to the New York office and found that 220 of them - more than half - had been deliberately misdated to make it look like claims were being processed faster than they really were. Whatever you do, don't ever move. Many vets move, and their records are lost in transit. A ridiculous, antiquated, redundant, red-tape laden system overwhelms workers with paperwork...160 million pages a year - and as a result, some workers cut corners, falsify records, or just plain screw up. So, I ask again (and not-so-surprisingly, responses are few and far between)...The government has had a shot at doing healthcare, and they are much worse than private industry. Why would we want them to be in charge of all of it? Now you know why I fight, and hard, against the People's Republic of AmeriKa healthcare bureacracy.
