View from the Ground

A close friend who works for the VA counseling vets with PTSD and other mental health issues sent this outraged text yesterday (edited for content):
I'm working all day at our Portland "Stand Down" outreach for homeless veterans and other disabled veterans in need.  All our Veterans' Benefits counselors are furloughed at home with no pay.  We literally cannot process benefits claims...even for my suicidal patients!  People are going to die.
