  •  Why no discussion of DoD? (8+ / 0-)

    The ridiculous backlog at the VA is, in part, caused by the failure of DoD systems to communicate with VA systems.
    That's not a VA problem.  That's a DoD and White House problem.

    The 600 day wait time exacerbates the problems with those that have PTSD and other urgent issues.
    It seems to me that people are getting discharged from DoD without proper diagnoses and treatment plan.
    That's not a VA problem.  That's a DoD and White House problem.

    VA is a the end of the slop chute of issues created by DoD and failure of White House CIOs to architect systems integrations / changes.

    So, why the exclusive focus only on the VA?

    Why not focus on the DoD and White House - where the problems begin?

    •  The version of TRMS I saw at MSNBC (0+ / 0-)

      did cover that.  I didn't watch this one.
