    I won't hold my breath. Some pretty good things mentioned in the report, however, as was said, this system has not changed in half a century...

    Doubt if it would ever pass in its present form. If it did, some of the increases would be offset by the more aggressive management (ie re-evaluation) of PTSD and other ailments.

    Since I'm 100% Service-Connected, Permanent & Total, I'd welcome an increase, but sure won't hold my breath waiting.

    I see the big budget need as more VA staff for claims processing and increase in the capacity of the VA Medical Centers...based on waiting times, both of these systems are overstressed.
