I am also drawing V.A. Comp (100%) and it is less than half of what I made before everything caught up with me 20 years ago..... I would have more
medical choices if I was a minority unwed mother on welfare..... I hate that I traded my physical health, mental well being and earning capabilities
for a tiny fraction of the daily profits of the war profiteers.
I don't know where you live and I don't know which VA you utilize but I see both sides of the fence on a weekly basis.I would never make the
assumption that I know your circumstances nor I am I making excuses for a systems that is often unfair, especially to our disabled Vets. But you
don't want to trade your benefits or your health care for what is available to an unwed mother on welfare minority or otherwise.
Things may be different in your state but in mine the welfare system is lacking and dwindling. Our emergency rooms are bulging at the seams because we
can't turn away people that come in for treatment and many doctors refuse Medicaid so the only place left is the ER. Sometimes people have to wait
days to be seen unless they are presenting with a true emergency.
From where you are sitting it looks like everyone else has it easy and is reaping the rewards of your efforts but the truth is that the whole system
is broken and we have all been dumped into the same heap.
If we are going to get out this mess we are going to have to do what we know best. Putting our differences behind us and working as a cohesive unit
I know you don't want to hear this crap and you probably would like to make those responsible feel your pain. Well we are long pass due a through
house cleaning and I don't mean a change of the same old guard.
While we are making changes we have to make sure that they leave with only what they came with. This business of paying these thieves into perpetuity
has to stop also.
