More VA disability concerns not helping injured soldiers

It never ceases to amaze me how a comp system can be cold blooded and almost hostile to injured people. This goes beyond bureaucratic delays. When laws, rules and paperwork become so complicated that they can be used to place obstacles in the path of the disabled and instead of easing their pain they add to it then it is time for change. Here the story in the link concerns veterans disability claims and apparently trying to find ways to save money on benefits. I have no problem with efforts to save money and make any system more efficient but when they say don't help them obtain all they are entitled to that is inhuman. Beyond the paperwork there is a human being with a disability or injury. If any system makes it easy to delay, deny and discourage a claim then that system should be changed.
