At least one VA office has been letting our military veterans die waiting to be seen and treated. They wanted to make their numbers look better so they devised two waiting lists; one list was for veterans who would be seen quickly and the other was for veterans who might never be seen.
They let our brave military, who sacrificed so much for their country, wait, and in some cases, die, before getting help they needed immediately.

It might have been a scheme orchestrated by a Sharon Helman, Chief of the Phoenix VA Hospital, to make their numbers look better. Many besides Ms. Helman knew of the plan. She was appointed in March 2012.
Dr. Foote’s accusations are now backed up by other officials.
If true, why did this go on for over a year, or even a day, without anyone saying anything?
Arizona’s two U.S. Senators are calling for a congressional investigation.
This is what happens in a Big Government system with amoral guidelines that are based on cost analysis and not on the inherent value of human life.
