The Bankruptcy Means Test and VA Disability

I am officially annoyed this afternoon. Trying to run my client’s household income numbers through the Means Test and seeing him fail due to the cumulative amount of both his household income and military disability. I am annoyed because if he were receiving plain old social security disability, he would pass the means test with flying colors and we would be filing a chapter 7 bankruptcy for him tomorrow afternoon in the Portland, Oregon Bankruptcy Court. Why count one and not the other? Shouldn’t the vets do better than the civilians? Of course I have known about this rule since it was enacted ten years ago, but it still annoys me.
