Here's what we should do: Give veterans enough benefits so they can afford to get the care they deserve from private sources. You could do this with medical vouchers. It would be cheaper than supporting the inefficient and notorious VA hospital system, and it would result in better care for people who really deserve much better care than they are getting. The line I used to hear from LWJ when she rotated through VA hospitals in her training was, it's a good thing veterans are so tough, because VA care would kill anybody else. That ain't right.
And just in case we have to revisit HillaryCare in the future, we should remember this little lesson in what kind of medical care we can expect from the guvment.
