VA Illegally Diverts Funds From Veterans Health Care

Bush Administration appointees are breaking the law by using designated health care funds for downsizing studies. Folks, this is not coming from some newspaper article or cable TV network news - it's coming from the Government Accounting Office (GAO) - Congress' own internal watch agency.

That's even less money that's available for your healthcare, vets.

Oh, and by the way, the White House press release accompanying the low profile signing of the VA budget last week crowing of a 16% increase in veterans' health care, is in actuality a 3% decrease.

The 1954 classic, "How to Lie with Statistics" by Darrell Huff must be required reading in the White House, and maybe you should read it too.
