This is what we have to look forward to under Obamacare. The current VA system as whole is in shambles. Yes, there are some shining examples of good treatment. However, most veterans are not treated in Bethesda. Who runs the VA healthcare system? Hmmm....

Way to take care of our veterans...

Outside the Veterans Affairs Department, severely wounded veterans have faced financial hardship waiting for their first disability payment. Inside, money has been flowing in the form of $24 million in bonuses.

In scathing reports this week, the VA's inspector general said thousands of technology office employees at the VA received the bonuses over a two-year period, some under questionable circumstances. It also detailed abuses ranging from nepotism to an inappropriate relationship between two VA employees.

This makes me nauseous.

You also have this to look forward to:

People's blind faith in gov't to solve their problems is very disturbing to me.

The treatment shown in the video is just despicable. Thank you for posting. I hope others will see this as well. It needs to be known.

Incompetent doctors:

They're part of the system, part of the problem.
