Posted on 03/02/2013 7:36:31 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Heres the story: a patient (who doesnt want to be named) was at a VA hospital for a colonoscopy not a routine one, but because of a problem that could be serious. As he tells it:
9 am in or prep room IV and muscle relaxant
given- theyll give me heavier dose of something before they go in. Sat there near an hour when lady walks in Govt Shut down. If youre not in, theyre out. that was it. Went to patient advocate she had been sent home almost as soon as she arrived Im guessing to head off volume of complaints...."

At least the moochers still receive welfare checks.
We need to form a .org
WE will take care of our vets.
I have no knowledge of how to go about this. But, we need to pull together, find a way to support those vets whom the government kicks in the teeth.
The lesson the bureaucrats think they are imparting is to give them the money they demand or they will punish you. However, the real lesson they are imparting is to never rely on the gov’t for anything.
I’m sick of the moochers.
They should be the first ones “disenfranchised”.
They are going to cut the few areas of government that shouldn’t be cut such as the military, and set the stage for people to demand they do whatever is necessary to help our veterans and troops. By doing this, they will get away with expanding government yet again.
While there are some areas of the military that can and should be cut, veterans benefits, combat readiness training, and routine ship maintenance should not be options.
Funny how liberals don’t care about spending but they suddenly care about spending. This is designed to smear Republicans leading up to the 2014 election so the Dems can take the House, which they’ll probably STEAL anyway.
our government is like the plant in Little Shop of Horrors. FEED ME! FEED ME!
The same thing happened at the DMV a while back when the government union workers weren't happy about something. They sat around doing cross word puzzles while an old lady stood and waited for almost an hour.
Government union workers are going to start torturing people because of this. They'll be having temper tantrums everywhere. This is a union thug thing.
If you run into a problem with a government union member, call a representative you think will do something about it. If you have only democrats politicians in your area, alert the media. Drudge may also help you if you have a story - like this one.
This has nothing to do with cuts. It has to do with the union.
We the People are not an abused wife asking “please don’t hit me again”.
We should counteract anything unreasonable thy do.
Or stand our ground as they suffer. This is war.
We need to know how to help.
They are trying to push the military to breaking point to unionize it.
I smell 1775.
The communists really abhor our vets.
I guess because they’ve exterminated so many of their like-minded brethren thru the years. They fear them to no end.
They’ve definitely been showing their true colors here recently. Crap like this will eventually come back to haunt them.
They call welfare, Section 8 and food stamps “entitlement” programs, but if veterans rather than able-bodied twenty-somethings aren’t “entitled” to help who in the world is?
At least a source. Not just a rumor or hearsay.
Veteran’s benefits in general are under the VA, not the Department of Defense.
But, if the regime won't do it, then we take each story, each person, find out all we can, and Donate!
There is more than one way to skin a cat.
These stories are intended to make us cave.
We harden our hearts for the cause, or we form a .org to help.
But we don't give in to this krap.
Hi, 2ndDivisionVet. I hope y’all are doing well.
I can’t believe that this is a “true” story. This seems just like something the “regime” would cook up and spread far and wide to further the fake outrage of these tiny “budget cuts.”
While I put NOTHING past the commies in the “Obama” administration, I am certain they will create unnecessary fake scenes like this, so they can pretend the “Republicans” are doing the hurting that they themselves are doing.
