A disability claim for a broken ankle? That's probably worth a couple million from our give away government.

It's about time that the VA's improve their health care for women vets. There are different health issues that need to be addressed. More female doctors are needed at the VA's also.

If I work for the government and break my ankle, I get to retire and get payments? What a sweet deal, where do I sign up for that gravy train.

"What a sweet deal, where do I sign up for that gravy train."

At your local recruiter's office. All you have to do is give up your freedoms, your body and your opinions for four to six years, serve in a war zone where people shoot at you and try to blow you up. There, you can sustain a serious injury. After which, you can deal with a bureaucratic mess for about two years. Then! Those sweet, big fat couple hundred dollars will be yours, all yours!!

How about we give them health insurance and they go to ordinary doctors of their choice like the rest of society?

Delibtard- my thoughts exactly. For routine care it makes much more sense to go to a local clinic or hospital. The further up the government gravy train you go, the less efficient and more expensive it gets!
