Re "Legislature is letting down California's injured workers" (Viewpoints, June 26): The modifier taxpayer-supported in George Davis' and Sid Freeman's piece is patronizing. It is enough to say the wait times facing veterans at VA hospitals has triggered federal investigations and a cabinet resignation.

Perhaps, Davis and Freeman don't know that military pay and length of service military pensions are taxed by both state and federal governments.
