This goes so far beyond wasted tax dollars.
If a man walked up to you wearing a prosthetic leg, you wouldn’t ask him if he was disabled, would you?
It would be as clear as day.
But that’s not what Obama’s VA did when they asked one of our faithful Army Rangers to prove he didn’t have a leg.
Glenn Beck was the one who brought this to the nation’s attention, and let’s be glad he did.
As Beck detailed on The Blaze:
Chad Fleming, a veteran who served in the 75th Ranger Regiment, says the VA took an X-ray of his artificial leg to prove he was actually an amputee. Though they could have referenced his extensive medical history or just used their eyes, he said, they wasted precious resources taking an X-ray of a leg that “doesn’t exist.”
“[The doctor] actually laughed,” Fleming said. “And I told him, I said, ‘You wonder why the country is in such a deficit? It’s because you’re wasting money taking X-rays of a leg that doesn’t exist.’ It’s like, ‘Dude I’m not a starfish. It isn’t going to grow back.'”
This is something the VA should be embarrassed about, but Obama’s missing in action when it comes to reforming the broken system.
Some people say he has bigger fish to fry… ask yourself if that’s really true when with the stroke of a pen he could change the laws like he’s already done in so many other ways.
Me Here....I guess duplication in triplicate wasn't enough proof for the VA!
