Denver (AP) -- A state audit shows five Colorado nursing homes
for veterans lost more than $1.5 million over five years. Auditors said Tuesday there were no clear goals for keeping the nursing homes solvent. According to the Denver Post, the Department of Human Services disagrees, and says its capacity goals were adequate. The nursing centers are located in Aurora, Florence, Monte
Vista, Rifle and Trinidad. The state sold the home in Trinidad in
February.

    Another example of the fine job government does managing anything. Wait until we are all forced at gunpoint to participate in Obummercare. Our vets deserve better and so do our taxpayers
