OK, am not a vet, but I work with spinal cord injury vets. Due to cuts that are coming to our home care service, we are going to have to reduce the amount of care some veterans receive that makes it POSSIBLE for them to remain at home. These folks, some very young, will HAVE to go into a nursing home as a result. The cost of care for these vets will INCREASE, and there will definitely not be any savings for the federal government.
I just don't get it...does congress even really look at a situation before they make these decisions? Or is it all basically a party play.
We can argue all we want on these boards, but the bottom line is vets, who have been receiving services necessary to their survival is being cut.
Vets have to fight this in Washington.
