All this from one that has no knowledge of markets. What corrections. Nor has the ability to do actual research. Your credit went the way of the wind when you had no idea of the 22 million jobs created by Clinton or how to research it. LOL you must be ignorant as well of how Press. Carter produced more Jobs in his 4 years than 12 years of Bushwacking and the first 4 years of Reagan's term. Total of 16 years of republican false leadership.
I'll give you a hint where you can find some facts that your foxy fox likes to skew or outright lies about them. Try the Bureau Of Business Statistics.
LOL perhaps then you might come to grasp that you were Bushwacked and you don't even know it after all these years. Want a couple of books as well???

"The benchmark gauge for U.S. equities fell for the eighth time in nine days, to the lowest level on a closing basis since Dec. 1. The more than 10 percent drop since April 29 means the index has entered what is known as a correction. The Dow Jones Industrial Average retreated 334.22 points, or 2.8 percent, to 11,562.22 today, erasing its 2011 gain.'

If most vets never set foot in one, what's the backlog controversy about? Not all vets have a retired status.
I believe the latest backlog was caused by the new wave of Agent Orange patients that became eligible in '09. One doesn't even have to show his ailment is agent orange connected. I doubt if many have a retirement status.
How's that for a story?
Not bad. I was actually involved in the agent agent orange legislation (Agent Orange Benefits Act) signed, finally, by Bill Clinton.

And also volunteered on a veterans benefits website prior to the DOD making individual service records available via the internet.

Those seeking help/disability $ for Diabetes Type II are creating a backlog as are those from Iraq I, II and Afghanistan who are "gaming" for full disability. You'd be amazed at the number of vets who never returned to full time civilian employment after leaving the military.

A VA doc in Gainesville told me that he thought his job would get easier after the WWII guys cycled through__not so__technology in combination with a rash of newly diagnosed illnesses has overwhelmed the system.

And it didn't help that BushCo fought the Second Gulf war off the books with no provision for future veterans health care.
