    I was at a seminar yesterday where the state veterans agency mentioned that Georgia vets/facilites receive some 6 plus billion a year, $4.6 in direct benefits, other in support of agencies, hospitals, clinics.  Georgia also has for its population a large number of totally disabled vets.  

    I think the Obama administration has made efforts to make things better, much better than Bush did or MCCain would have done, more money, more facilities and improvements in existing facilities, more patients seen, more disability claims handled.   But its is one very big swamp with a lot of alligators that were allowed to flourish for a long time before Obama was elected.  And even the large increase in budget isn't enough money to address everything that has been undone for a long time.
