If I read this correctly, you are saying a veteran who needs an organ transplant must wait for another veteran to donate an organ if they want the VA healthcare system to pay for it. That is not only absurd but obscene. Patients are added to transplant lists according to their state of health and proximity to a transplant center. What's next? Must the donor also be the same race, religion, or political party? Veterans should be treated as any other citizen and be eligible to receive the next matching donor organ irrespective of any factor not health related.
