Vets Wait for Doctors While VA Spends $420M on Solar Panels
The VA might want to rethink its spending. While our vets are slowly dying and going without vital medical attention, the VA seems to think a $420M investment in solar panels is a great plan. More here:
Veterans Administration hospitals have spent at least $420 million on solar panels and windmills while vets wait months – or even lay dying – to see a doctor.
In total, VA hospitals reported 23 deaths due to 76 instances of delayed care, an April 2014 VA fact sheet said. Then on June 5, Acting Veteran Affairs Secretary Sloan Gibson revealed that at least 18 Phoenix patients died while waiting for treatment on a secret list kept off the books. It is not clear if that number is in addition to the 23 deaths reported earlier. During the past month, the scandal has resulted in the resignations of both the VA secretary and the leaders of its health care component.
Gad we are staying green while letting the people who fought for this country die in hospitals powered by windmills. Seems like the VA really has their priorities together, right?
