VETERANS WAITING TO DIE

FOR MANY VETERANS CROSSING  RICE PADDIES OF VIETNAM, THE DESERTS OF IRAQ OR THE MOUNTAINS OF AFGHANISTAN WAS A FAR EASIER JOB THAN GETTING TO SEE A DOCTOR AT A VA HOSPITAL.  NOW WHY IS THIS?  AFTER ALL WE HAVE SEEN THE GREAT CARE GIVEN OUR WARRIORS AT WALTER REED ARMY HOSPITAL IN WASHINGTON AND AT THE NATIONAL NAVAL MEDICAL CENTER AT BETHESDA, MARYLAND.  SO HOW CAN THIS BE?  ONE MUST REMEMBER THAT THE ABOVE MENTIONED HOSPITALS ARE SHOWCASES AND THOSE IN CHARGE HIGHLIGHT THE SERVICES GIVEN TO VETS THERE.   BUT THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF OTHER VA HOSPITALS AND CLINICS ACROSS THE NATION THAT FOR THE MOST PART THAT GET LITTLE SCRUTINY FROM THOSE IN CONGRESS AND THOSE IN THE MEDIA AS WELL.  THANKS TO WHISTLE-BLOWERS WE ARE FINDING OUT THE PITIFUL TREATMENT GIVEN TO OUR BRAVE VETS AT THESE INSTITUTIONS, THAT IS WHEN THEY CAN EVEN GET IN.  RECENTLY WE HAVE FOUND OUT THOSE IN CHARGE AT THESE HOSPITALS HAVE BEEN "COOKING THE BOOKS" TO SHOW THEY ARE SEEING THOSE SEEKING HELP IN A TIMELY MATTER.  WHEN IN FACT, THE WAITING PERIOD TO SEE A DOCTOR HAVE BEEN ANYTHING BUT TIMELY.  WE ARE NOW ALSO LEARNING THAT MANY DOCTORS IN THE VA SYSTEM ARE SEEING AS FEW AS 1/3 OF THE PATIENTS EACH DAY AS THEIR COUNTER PARTS IN PRIVATE PRACTICE.  BUT THEN WE ALL KNOW THAT LIKE MOST GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES THEY GET PAID REGARDLESS OF THE NUMBERS THEY SEE.  BUT BE ASSURED THAT THE SUPERVISORS AT THESE HOSPITALS WILL GET THEIR POUND OF FLESH BY USING THAT TIME HONORED SYSTEM OF "COOKING THE BOOKS" TO HIDE THE LIE SO THEY CAN GET THOSE UNEARNED BONUSES EACH AND EVERY YEAR WHILE HUNDREDS OF BRAVE WARRIORS DIE WAITING TO SEE THEIR VA DOCTOR.
