Rep. Duckworth (D-IL) - Salamander Politician of the Month

One of the great untold shames out there is the abuse of the VA disability system.

In some TAP classes, you are even taught how to game the system ... to the point of telling everyone who snores to get tested for sleep apnea, and if you've given birth - the 'roids have a great percentage too.

While those who push getting every percentage they can, and those who game the system, think they are either doing a good thing or are just getting what they can - there is a real price.

Every fluffed claim takes time away from those with real claims. Every dollar spent on your 'roids is a dollar not spent on real injury.

Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL)
, perhaps more than anyone else, is in a position to raise this topic without the compassion trolls coming after her like they would most.

Go get 'em. Watch this all ...

I look forward to her lambasting of SN Timmy when he collects Hazardous Duty pay, but clearly wasn't in as much danger as her; or when AN Suzy has the gall to use her tuition assistance or GI Bill for a class that Rep. Duckworkth doesn't feel is as hard as her major was. If the guy was injured on active duty and rated with a disability by competent authority, why does it matter if it was a football injury? If she doesn't like the preference law, pehaps she should contact someone on the Hill to change it...
