    And it isn't a VA 'scandal', it's the Country served and through their Representatives 'Scandal', decades long and wars from as they ignore the issues so they need not pay for, wars over can't wave them patriotic, patriotism posers, flags:

    "In fiscal 2013, the VA spent about $4.8 billion, or about one-tenth of its healthcare costs, on private care, often for veterans who live far from VA facilities or veterans in need of care unavailable at a VA facility."
    That spending, it's still mostly borrowed, especially in the last decade plus and two wars of choice as this VA started addressing long ignored issues of previous decades and wars from, since Korea and even WWII issues, with interest and problems created by the people and their reps taking from those budgets to fix. Instead of the flag wavin country building and just maintaining and advancing the Agency that should have always been, thus costing less to operate and with quality!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Long Time Example:

    Conservatives Pro-Business right-wing Think Tank American Enterprise Institutes own Sally Satel, Still Selling Care for PTSD Veterans is Waste of Money! Nemisis of us Veitnam Veterans who fought for recognition of! She, and some others, have made very lucretive livings writing and speaking in denial of, giving reason to country and politicians serving them to ignore, and thus have the blood of hundreds of thousands of not only military, military veterans but civilians who suffer the ravages from extreme trauma's, on just one long of many ignored issues by those served issue so they need not pay for care!

    "If military action is worth our troops' blood, it should be worth our treasure, too; not just in the abstract, but in the form of a specific ante by every American." -Andrew Rosenthal 10 Feb. 2013
