Of course I want to say yes. However, before an automatic increase, some research is required. I have seen incredible abuse of the VA system by an older vet for whom I was Power of Attorney. He's just one person, but the VA literally buried him in drugs, equipment, home visits, etc. He had 5 wheelchairs ... He had 8 walkers.... He had 80 boxes of meds even tho he took the prescribed amount every day. I tried to stop the abuse and got nowhere. Like Medicare, Medicare, Social Security ... the VA is fraught with an enormous amount of errors, wasting money at every turn. It's an enormous job, but steps need to be taken to fix the errors in these systems.
