“Rating board members told us that after the {VA} central office began its continuing review, it routinely denied rating boards’ proposals for unemployability awards, and, therefore, the rating boards became less willing to propose new unemployability awards. VA headquarters officials in the Compensation and Pension Service questioned whether their tightening of procedures may have gone too far in reducing the number of new unemployability awards. Veterans service organization representatives said that because of the central office review, the attitude of rating boards now is deny the unemployability benefit and to look for ways to disqualify veterans from getting the award.”

We are going back to the 70's and 80's where the VA denied everything and low balled everyone. We vets are going to pay for the war and the deficit.
