VA Benefits Backlog “Reduction” is a Numbers Game

The supposed progress being reported by the VA on benefits backlogs is a classic shell game. Rather than properly processing dated benefit claims, the VBA’s own numbers show it is simply throwing backlogged claims in to the appeals process to give the appearance of progress.

Are we doing enough to help those who have served in uniform to integrate successfully into the civilian world? The answer appears to be a decisive “no.”

The #VA claims it’s making great progress reducing the famous claims-backlog. HOWEVER, if one looks closer they will discover that the number of appeals in that same time has almost doubled.

The VA isn’t fulfilling claims, they’re just moving them over to the appeals pile! #VAscandal …

#DailyVAFail – A #VA employee has admitted to embezzling $150,000 (but records show possibly up to $450,000+), and then spending it on strippers, prostitutes and casinos.

If this doesn’t paint a clear picture as to the needed #VAaccountability department-wide, AT ALL LEVELS, what more proof do …

Perfect story for #WarriorWednesday – don’t mess with the greatest generation! #veterans
