    It’s not only that. The DOL keeps homeless vets out on the streets as bums because they fail government’s spelling contest: military discharge papers use slashes whereas civil servants expect commas.

    Carlito, what does big pharma have to do with vets dying in crazy numbers because money stops them from getting health care?
