If there is any example of cronyism and disgusting government bureaucracy it is Veterans Affairs. There is no reforming.There is only blowing it up. Get vets out of this horrible socialized healthcare system and into a system where there is at least a modicum of economic reality. (And even more importantly a private sector level of service.)
(From The Daily Caller)
A transition official a part of GOP President-elect Donald Trump’s team ratcheted up tensions with veterans’ groups Wednesday after the official said Trump is thinking about moves to privatize at least part of the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Such a bold move is opposed not only by most veterans’ advocacy groups, but also by the VA itself, The Wall Street Journal reports.
The unidentified official said Trump is thinking about permitting some veterans to sidestep the VA completely through giving access to all of their care from the private sector.
“It’s one of the options on the table,” the official said Wednesday. “Definitely an option on the table to have a system where potentially vets can choose either or, or all private.”
Yeah, I’ll bet the VA is opposed to this. Good. Do it.
