This bill Does NOT privatize the VA. All of you that believe this is an objective need to read and inform yourself of the details. This bill is long overdue and only helps both the VA and the Veteran. While this goes a long way to support Veterans needs there is still no mandated policy on how the VA health system deals with cancer patients. With over 15,000 prostate cases diagnosed each year and no emphasis on early screening the VA continues to ignore this issue. It’s a perfect case for outsourcing care to modern facilities and practices.
