I hope you are paying for that carpet, because other taxpayers shouldn't have to pay for people's special treatment.

we paid for it already. he pitched a 100 m an hr baseball (clocked @98 in the minor leagues) but was tapped by unca sam to go over seas. We both worked our arses off till I had to retire and he finally got cancer after going back to work multiple times. last time increased his SS considerably.

He would be the exception. I have had family members and other acquaintances experience the VA and the only red carpet they saw was stained with blood. The facilities and the care were close to third world conditions.

My step brother was in the Navy and was paralyzed in an accident while stationed in Hawaii. After some time in the hospital in Hawaii, he was transported back to the Cleveland VA hospital. (Not sure why he went to the VA as this was over 30 years ago, but I am guessing that by then he had already been discharged from the Navy).

Anyway, once he made it to the VA hospital, I would frequently visit him there. That place was a horror show. The hallways were darkened, there was old beds, chairs and other equipment stacked in the hallways. The rooms were dirty and cluttered. The nurses did their best, but were severely understaffed and the doctors were almost never around. We determined that he would be better off and home with a home HC service brought in and quickly made arraignments to make that happen.

I have had other friends and family in other VA facilities and had similar experiences.

Well, you just surprised me, I never thought of you as a republican.
