Both my husband and I have had great care at VA facilities here in San Diego since 1999, when we retired with disabilities. My brother also received good care for over forty years in LA and Long Beach. What the VA needs is full funding. The GOP likes to under fund agencies, then say they don't work. Look at what they've done to the Postal Service trying to drive them out of business so they can privatize and hand over to their cronies!! Put the money into the VA over the war machine that only profits Cheney and his ilk!
