My problems with this:
Is the process in which veterans are diagnosed as mentally incompetent any different than civilians? If all other citizins have to be declared as such by a judge rather than a healthcare provider, then the process is unfair to veterans (or civilians depending on how you look at it). Furthermore, the problem is clearly stated in the article that the VA is misdiagnosing it's patients. Why in the hell would (or should) we introduce or change legialation because the VA can't do their damn job right? That is creating a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
