Breaking news today (heart-breaking).
Veterans Administration internal audit report released today.
- More than 100,000 veterans are waiting more than 90 days for care
- “staff at 76% of facilities surveyed reported that they were instructed to misrepresent appointment data at least once”
UPDATE: The result of this inept, perhaps criminal neglect is this (video):
There is no excuse for this, it's the same as saying "hey I am innocent, I was just following my bosses order's". I reply "really?" We all have the right to say no to unlawful orders. I met a 30 year Veteran who asked me the other day if I would ever follow a unethical or unlawful order, when I told him no, he told me I would be in violation of the UCMJ. I told him then so be it. There is no way I am going to follow a unethical or unlawful order, especially one that causes unnecessary harm or suffering especially to our veterans who have served their country.
