When someone calls a crisis hotline it is because they are in crisis. They are contemplating or on the verge of committing suicide and are reaching out to someone for help. Veterans calling the Obama VA Crisis Hotline, however, were sent a very clear message by the Obama VA. What’s that message? The Obama VA could care less about Veterans in crisis and could care less if they follow through with that suicide attempt or not. One would think that after the previous Obama VA Scandal, when it was revealed that Veterans died waiting for treatment because VA staff were falsifying records and logs in order to receive bonuses, the VA would be far more diligent in serving the needs of our nation’s Veterans. Of course, since no one was ever fired due to the scandal, perhaps it should not be a surprise that problems continued to the point where Veterans calling for help as they contemplated suicide would be ignored by the Obama VA. Twenty-two veterans a day commit suicide and the very people who are supposed to be there for them should they reach out for help could give a damn.
