Again, the vet refuses to candy-coat the roots of the festering VA scandal: “The problem is not just waiting lists. It is utter fraudulent expenditure of enormous budgets, not on veterans, but on overpaid lazy, surly civilian employees that often make it clear that a) they do not like veterans and b) that the veteran is actually a nuisance. The problem is endemic, at every level, in the VA. The unfortunate fact of the matter is this: Veterans have become incidental to the process at the VA.”
The system is “an enormous cash cow, warehousing tens of thousands of overpaid employees” who “keep the gravy-train rolling.” The vet has a plea on behalf of all of his brothers and sisters who are drowning in the VA’s “lie, delay, deny” abyss:
“Please, don’t let this die.”
CORRECTION: In last week’s column, I erroneously stated that ProgressNow was responsible for an attack ad against Colorado GOP gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo. The ad was sponsored by Protect Colorado Values, a separate Democrat-linked outfit.
