The VA is Socialized Medicine. Like Obamacare you have no choice of Doctors. In AZ they failed to provide adequate health care to veterans resulting in the death of 40 Veterans. in Oakland, an unannounced inspection identified 1 veteran that had been dead so long maggots had eaten his innards. President Obama allowed 4 Administrators at each location to resign, when they should have undergone an investigation to determine whether the problem was incompetence or whether it was the death panels in action. Veterans should be free to choose. They fought for our freedom to choose. They should receive vouchers that they can use for Doctors that are not in the VA. As a veteran, refuse to be forced. I will pay my insurance. At a minimum the VA does not have the money to spend keeping Veterans alive. No one seems to care. How many veterans beg for food, and sleep under bridges because they suffer from PTSD? Does anyone feel their pain, or hear their cries?
