To the Editor:

Did you ever wonder where the dollar amounts requested by the government comes from, and why they can argue for an arbitrary figure as if one dime here, or a nickel there will upset the whole scheme?

Well, guess what: it is arbitrary for a specific reason.

If $17 billion is needed to “fix” the VA, and $3.7 billion is needed to process the flood of immigrant children, those figures include wide “fudge” factors.

That’s right, the numbers are fluffed up enough to get the job done many times over while allowing criminal elements and political lackeys plenty to feed from, while declaring later the money was un-traceable.

Consider this: prior to the whistleblowers finally getting attention, the VA had plenty of funding available to pay their criminal employees performance bonuses.

That’s right, I said criminal, because when I worked for the government, I understood it was a crime to falsify government records.

How many millions of the 17 thousand million (17 billion) will end up in the hands and bank accounts of some of the same people who falsified government  documents (health records) in order to enhance their perceived performance, thereby stealing  government money designated for providing health care to our veterans?

Seems the problem is not money; it is crime at the user level.

If you call it different, maybe you should do a self-addressed character assessment.

$3.7 billion to “process” the undocumented children? Do we have $3.7 billion lying about to process people, when $3.7 billion spent on border security would have made a huge dent in the illegal population needing processing? 

We are being led, not by incompetents, but by a vast criminal element unable to grasp the wrongfulness of their actions, because they reject the moral compass garnered by patriotic sacrifice since 1776. Spell Corruption.

    It's a shame that stuff like this wasn't looked into about ten years ago. This has been going on for many years. Maybe if it had been it wouldn't be such a mess now. It didn't happen overnight!

    @ actions by VA workers to falsify records were criminal


    Correct--- It was criminal ,and the ones who did this falsifying which resulted in the death of a veteran, are even more guilty of a criminal offense.
    And should be brought to trial on all accounts in federal courts.
    No matter how high up the ladder it goes, to whoever gave the orders to commit these crimes.
    I don't think it was some clerk who happen to be answering the appointment phones, or sitting as a desk clerk who made these decisions.
