Editorial: "Viewer Feedback: "Disgrace"

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Our editorial last week focusing on the breakdowns at the Central Alabama Veterans Health Care System lead to the following feedback on wsfa.com and our WSFA 12 News station Facebook page…here is just a sampling:

Jeffery provided the following, "While we are asking questions can we ask the Congresswoman and Senator why is it that the VA has been asking for more funding for years but rather than add funding they have continued to slash budgets while our veteran population explodes.  Now all of a sudden things come to light and not only do they 'supposedly' care but they suddenly found billions of dollars for veteran care."

John responded with, "I've been trying to bring this to light for over 15 years; neither the VA Office of Inspector General, the U.S. Office of Special Counsel or the FBI would do anything about the corruption at the Central Alabama Veterans Healthcare System. Maybe justice will come for he who is persistent, and patient?"

Lastly Kimberly writes, "VA problems have been going on for a long, long time and until main stream media decided to bring up the cause it was very hard for one person to open the eyes of everyone else. Once the eyes where opened in the case of Phoenix it became time to get the ball rolling as it gave everyone involved a leg to stand on."

As always, we encourage and appreciate your feedback.
