Courant: “An Army veteran from Bridgeport says an MRI revealed that a surgeon left a scalpel in his abdomen four years earlier.
Glenford Turner, 61, went to the West Haven Veterans Affairs Hospital with abdominal pain last March when the surprising discovery was made, according to his lawyer. Turner required surgery to remove the scalpel, and last week filed suit against the Department of Veterans Affairs.”

“X-rays revealed the presence of an abandoned scalpel inside Mr. Turner’s body. Doctors confirmed that is was the scalpel knife used during Turner’s radical prostatectomy — performed four years earlier at the West Haven VA,” attorney Joel Faxon of New Haven said in a statement Monday announcing the lawsuit.”

Congress is holding up their pay increase.

Taxpayers, veterans included, are funding government entitlements to illegals. Food stamps and Medicaid, the USDA is working with the Mexican government to market food stamps to them.
Our federal benefit programs for illegals has long been contributing to our deficit downfall and then Congress has the cajones (ask the illegals) to balance it out on the backs of our disabled vets?
