What's The Dumbest Thing You Could Say To A Congresswoman Who Lost Her Legs In Battle? Um, THIS.

An IRS contractor named Braulio Castillo hurt his foot playing football in military prep school. He never served in the actual military. Then one day, decades later, he used it to get preferred treatment in government contracts. Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), who lost both her legs and still could lose her arm from combat injuries, felt that this might just be a touch inappropriate. It gets amazing around 4:30.

That's great. I love this video. I work in VA hospitals occasionally. My contact at the VA hospital in Big Spring tried to talk me into going for a VA disability claim. He talked like every veteran should make a claim. I told him that I was healthy and had good medical coverage. This guy was almost offended that I didn't agree with him that I should seek a disability claim for high frequency hearing loss. (I fixed jets in the AF.) The fraud is bad and as said in the video, it ruins coverage for those that really need it.

Well, it's no wonder, as Ms. Duckworth said, it's is taking so long for the deserving men and woman, my brothers and sisters, to get even the initial contact from the VA for their problems. AZZHOLES like that, Damnit, I'm so pissed right now I cant finish without going into a very cuss word laden tirade.

what a total POS abuser of the system. I admire Tammy Duckworth's resolve and clarity as she rips him a new one.
Agreed. Get some you pathetic bastard! :machine:
