    The administrators of this VA hospital should be frog-marched out in front of the hospital and shot.
    OMG, that is unforgivable. I've railed for years about how poorly the VA treats our veterans, the heroes who have given everything to serve their country. This literally makes me cry. Heads should roll. This is the result of two administrations that have ignored the men and women who have served with pride, and have believed that the country they loved would step up to the plate and care for them when they needed it.

    This isn't a partisan issue; this is an issue of an official abuse of our wounded warriors by politicians that care nothing for those who have trusted their country to keep its word and care for them in their time of need. It's political lip-service only, and these despicable politicians and VA officials should all spend the rest of their miserable lives in a 6x6 cell, hopefully suffering at least a fraction of the agony they have caused to those who have so honorably served us, and who have been so dishonorably abused.

    It breaks my heart.

    As should all the politicians.

    And especially those that always howl about how much they love veterans, when it was politically expedient you had idiots like Cruz, standing with vets at the memorials, raging against the shutdown that he was partially responsible for, where is he now, why is he not standing with vets on the steps of the VA offices demanding a change to this situation?

    Don't mean to pick on him, but his hypocritical actions during the shutdown really stand out to me, but both parties share responsibility for this state of affairs, they refuse to give the VA the resources it needs to

    A: take care of veterans As well as they could

    B: modernise the filing system so that claims can be processed more effectively.

    On top of that this is indicative of almost every government and country that has ever waged war ever, they always promise the young that they'll be taken care of if anything happens to them, but they never really have the resources to back that up.

    That isn't the VA system as a whole. Each state runs their own VA system. Some stronger than others. What happened in Arizona is horrific.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    Godalmighty, that was painful to read. WTH are they thinking? That guy who was 71 and wanted to be treated at the VA because he loved the Navy...

    I can't watch the video.

    After reading it all, I'm not sure I understand what specifically is being done to prevent this from happening again (in Phoenox or elsewhere)?

    IMO, this is an outrageous and unconscionable crime. The management of this system and al others who participated in the scheme should be held accountable for the 40 deaths. Any managers who are members of the Military, should be dishonorably discharged in addition to being held criminally responsible. No person, much less veterans who put their lives at risk for the nation, ever deserved to be treated in such a callous fashion.
    This is merely a foreshadowing of what the ACA is bringing to the rest of the country.

    What happened wasn't by accident or incompentence, it was done on purpose. Unbelieveable!

    It's the kind of system that we have committed to for everyone in the country. You won't be able to avoid it. Congratulations, fools!

    You think you have any control or say over any of this any more? Morons! You gave all that up, and for what? You thought you'd be getting something for nothing.
