Quality Assurance for the VA is Quantity issuance of Denial Letters. If they had anything close to Quality Assurance why arent they catching their millions of mistakes across the country. I would love to be a Quality Assurance Specialist at the VA Regional Office. Of course they would fire me for Doing My Job. I remember a movie called catch 22??

Maybe we've found our grounds for a class action lawsuit. Or how about this one:

“CHARGED WITH” KNOWLEDGE OF FEDERAL STATUTES AND REGULATIONS

§ “The Supreme Court has held that everyone dealing with the Government is charged with knowledge of federal statutes and lawfully promulgated agency regulations. Fed. Crop Ins. Corp. v. Merrill, 332 U.S. 380, 384-85 . . . (1947). <A name=0100008F>http://""' target="_blank"> Thus, regulations are binding on all who seek to come within their sphere, ‘regardless of actual knowledge of what is in the [r]egulations or of the hardship resulting from innocent ignorance.’ Id. at 385.” Velez v. West, 11 Vet.App. 148, 156 (1991) quoting Morris(John) v. Derwinski, 1 Vet.App. 260, 265 (1991); see also Jaquay v. West, 11 Vet.App. 67, 74 (1998).

That sort of goes along with "Ignorance of the law is no excuse".

This is a double-edged sword, as VA rating specialists and veterans have a responsibility to know the law. When that is not the case, neither is innocent ignorance. It extracts a great price from veterans and their families. We must continue to support each other with what we know and rally for a remedy against the VA when its representatives make decisions, literally, of life and death, yet ignore or don't know the law. We have enough veterans just coming through hadit to start a good uprising!

In a day when the masses are uniting to protest a cartoon, surely the masses of veterans could unite for such a worthy cause. Of course, I'm not advocating violence (although the VA shenanigans can conjure up thoughts of desperation), but it is a shame to see so many veterans hurting.

OK, that's enough of my soapbox spiel. :lol:

Sorry if I should have moved this to the Social discussion!
