Disgusting! Feds REFUSING Care to Sick Veterans

Dear Reader,

If you’re a veteran… or have a loved one who served in the military… this is an urgent warning you need to hear.

For years we’ve heard about the shoddy health care our veterans are receiving from the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Some vets have even died while waiting for treatment from the VA.

But this latest VA scam is beyond sickening.

A whistleblower has just admitted that the VA system is intentionally REFUSING to perform potentially life-saving surgeries on very sick veterans.

They’re literally letting our brave men and women die – and you’ll never believe why.

Dr. Michael Mann is a surgeon who worked for the VA system in San Francisco.

And for VA bureaucrats all over America, he’s become Public Enemy #1.

You see, Dr. Mann was fired in 2011 after he made a shocking discovery.

VA  hospitals across the country have been manipulating statistics on death rates to improve their hospital ratings — and so administrators can get fat bonuses.

And they’ve been refusing to operate on seriously ill veterans who could end up dying and hurting their numbers.

Can you believe it?! Their ENTIRE MISSION is to care for our sick vets – and all these pathetic government bureaucrats care about is their bonuses.

It makes me want to tear my hair out… and it’s 100% true.

The entire scam is being driven by the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program.

This system compares patient mortality rates of VA hospitals across the country and then rates and funds those facilities, accordingly.

According to Dr. Mann, hospital administrators deny surgeries to high-risk patients in order to boost those stats and receive additional bonuses for themselves and their hospitals.

And this has been happening for a long time…

Mortality rates at VA facilities dropped by nearly 50 percent from the mid-1990s to the late 2000s (even while the American population was aging – sounds fishy, right?).

These stats were unprecedented and, as Dr. Mann points out, they prove the scam was nationwide.

In his book, Mission Betrayed, Mann even details meetings he attended where hospital administrators instructed physicians not to bring any high-risk patients into the OR.

ABSOLUTELY DESPICABLE!

These administrators would rather see veterans DIE than lose a payday.

Dr. Mann argues that the VA has learned to manipulate statistics across the board to make it seem like they’re giving adequate care to our veterans.

Instead, facility conditions are deteriorating, vets are having to fight harder and harder to receive any care at all, and now this statistics scam.

So what can we do?

First, never expect the VA to police itself. It’s proven time and time again that it won’t.

Instead, contact your members of Congress and demand they open an immediate investigation into veterans being denied life-saving surgeries.

Because what is happening is criminal… and we owe our vets better than this.
