Think Bush will decree that the V.A. can't be sued?
::coughexecutive privilegecough:: Why the hekuvah not?
Frustrated by delays in health care, injured Iraq war veterans accusedSecretary in a lawsuit of breaking the law by denying them disability pay and mental health treatment.Support our troops! Support our troops!
It contends the VA failed to provide prompt disability benefits, failed to add staff to reduce wait times for medical care and failed to boost services for post-traumatic stress disorder.
Like that matters. No need to acknowledge this. Shove it up your colonoscopic orifices with the rest of the frivolous lawsuits that attempt to rectify horrendous miscarriages of justice.
The lawsuit also accuses the VA of deliberately cheating some veterans by allegedly working with the to misclassify PTSD claims as pre-existing personality disorders to avoid paying benefits.Lawsuit, schmawsuit. It's just a bunch of used-up, damaged, traumatized, maimed young men and women in uniform who did their dirty work and can now be discarded. It's not like they owe them or anything. And besides, they were like that before they signed up...this is actually working out very well for them.
On to the next outrage...
