Default Veterans haven't received GI Bill benefits for months due to ongoing IT issues at VA

Looks like this administration's great handling of veterans ain't so great after all.
something about people in glass houses...

Quote:
The Department of Veterans Affairs is suffering from a series of information technology glitches that has caused GI Bill benefit payments covering education and housing to be delayed or ó in the case of Roundtree ó never be delivered.
Quote:
"Iím about to lose everything that I own and become homeless," Roundtree said. "I donít want to be that veteran on the street begging for change because I havenít received what I was promised."

Quote:
Without the GI Bill's housing stipend, Roundtree was kicked out of his apartment and is now living on his sister's couch, miles from school, where he feels like a burden on his family. The new living situation required him to move all his belongings into a storage container, which he can no longer afford. Now all of his possessions are in danger of being auctioned off by the storage facility.

When people posted here about problems with the VA during the previous administration, you always responded that the VA was very good to I think it was a family member, and there were no problems. Now that there is a Republican administration, you claim the VA has problems. This hypocrisy is blatant on the left and got old long ago. The VA had problems before and they still need to be fixed.

1) that was about health care
2) trump ran on making the VA in general better.
3) so you blamed it on Obama; now you gonna blame it on trump?
Also, Obama didn't have anything to do with the VA wait time to get approved, but he did help the situation.
On trumps watch looks like this glitch and vets don't get benefits like housing and college.
So you gonna blame trump for the glitch as you would have done Obama?
I'm not blaming him. But you are so quick to defend the guy you assume I am.

I order SOnny's meds when he is out or low with the automated system unless it's supplies like 02 or some such, then I just call and the local supplier brings it out. As big as Gainsville (Fl) and Houston VA's were when I was there (to visit inlaw and other one to work in) they did a pretty jam up job. But you better get a map before you set out to your destination room or lab
The one in Dallas was good. The one in Tucson you could just wipe it away and start over except for getting meds

I was ordering thru the auto system.. It said that meds expired.. Yet they were sent by mail the day before.
So technically being my last before seeing Doc, LPN to reorder all meds..
