And we hear again from Jim Ciha.  Jim is concerned about our ‘overwhelmed’ VA Hospitals, due to the number of veterans wounded in the middle east conflicts.  Jim sounds a little anti-war to me.  I don’t know if he is a ‘vet’ of any kind, so I don’t know just how he would determine our VA as ‘overwhelmed’.  I think it is in the perception of the term ‘overwhelmed’, which looks to me like lack of oversight.  You know, the ‘oversight’ legislature builds into any law or legislative process - that is a non-starter.  Lack of
oversight that allowed Fast and Furious, the INS snooping, the IRS to make it hard for non-profits, Benghazi, and a host of other debacles under the present administration.  Vets were sacrificed (put on hidden waiting lists) so administrators could get their bonuses.  Who had oversight?  Why, the very people who were to receive the bonuses!  Did they get their bonuses?  You bet!  Due to the “rules of engagement”, fewer military people have been wounded, or KIA in the ongoing wars than in Viet Nam, yet the VA is to be called ‘overwhelmed’.  We have been losing Vets from WWII at a rate commensurate with those being wounded in these two wars, yet the VA is ‘overwhelmed’?  I don’t buy it.  Follow the money, and you will discover the ‘real’ reasons for the hidden appointment lists.  As a Vet myself - I have had nothing but great care from our local VA in Grand Junction.  If the ‘hidden appointment lists’ turn out to be a fact here in this VA Hospital, I will be surprised.
