Since May, the Veterans Administration has reduced the number of veterans waiting longest for care -- its top priority -- by 57%, according to James Hutton, a VA spokesman. From June to September, the VA completed 19 million appointments, an increase of 1.2 million compared with the same time last year. To recruit more health care providers, VA Secretary Robert McDonald has proposed pay hikes for VA doctors and dentists, Hutton said. McDonald announced a restructuring of the VA on Nov. 10. read more

Jon C. White, Pain Medicine News: As a long-serving surgeon in the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), I find the recent controversy disheartening. Let me start by pointing out that patient satisfaction with the VA system is as high or even higher than that of the private health care system in the United States. An estimated 80% of the 9 million veterans receiving health care at the VA are satisfied. To cull from this population a minority of dissatisfied people who report negative things about the VA is not responsible investigative reporting; it is just tabloid journalism.

You support hate crimes so long as they're black on white, or at least as how you perceive it...

... but if the victim is black, as in this thread, you're all about "thought crimes" and double jeopardy.

The fact is that all three victims are Muslim [two Bosnians and one Somali] and you're picking and choosing on the basis of their skin color.

You stink of hypocrisy.

Since when does a person's nationality determine their faith?

Do you know anything?

Ever heard of the Bosnian War 1992 - 95? ... or were you living in a cave in Frogbowls Kentucky?

Bosnian War

en.wikipedia.org

Bosnia and Herzegovina, a former Ottoman province, has historically been a multi-ethnic state. According to the 1991 census, 44% of the population considered themselves Muslim (Bosniak), 32.5% Serb and 17% Croat, with 6% describing themselves as Yugoslav.

Support civil human beings in general. Regardless of who or what they pray too.

Spare me your sanctimonious attempt at humanity. If you were truly concerned for all people, regardless of who they are and where they come from, you would understand the point I'm making.
