Shulkin's appearance before the cameras had NO good messages about ANYTHING today. His desire to those who were forced onto IU to lose their quality of life because they are "too old to work"  is the most distressing news item on the to do list. These veterans collecting IU took that in lue of continuing in the battle for their rightful and EARNED benefit amounts and now just as they hit the line in old age will have their incomes reduced by 50% or more. These IU tracks forbid these veterans to work and resulted in many not even being eligible for but the smallest modicum of Social Security payments. In addition, these IU benefits are not rolled over to their families and spouses upon their departure. In short, it was the perfect setup to insure that our government could once again refuse to those most in need for their life shattering injuries in service to this fine nation, ANY real restbit in their golden years. The IU was primarily designed to limit the appeals backlogs, and no doubt the VA had every intention of taking it away when their greed decided it was time to take more away from our veterans. LESS for Vets, MORE for the VA. Join us as we delve into this, other VA news of the week, Shulkin's latest press conference and touch on what it is like to have one's quality of life totally in the hands of those who start the wars, but then never want to pay for them. The only reason these veterans were forced to take IU was to offset the low balling of their claims and end the appeals battle with the VA for fair and just compensation for their injuries.  Join our host tonight Ronda Moon-Lain along with our listeners on KOKY 102.1 FM in Little Rock, WWWL 1350 AM in New Orleans, KJAQ 96.5 FM in Seattle and our own WKKP 1410 AM here in Atlanta as we pull the curtain back on a VA system totally off the rails.
